Omid’s set for Yungaburra
THE Yungaburra Sessions are upon us again, bringing the best local folk musicians around, to the verandah of the Yungaburra pub.
Folk music enthusiasts or just those keen for a little something different this Saturday, head up the hill to Atherton and watch the joyous jam session.
The February feature artist i s our very own h i g h l y acclaimed singer/songwriter and multi- instrumentalist, Omid Master, who will begin his set at 7pm.
Mr Master said he is excited about playing at Yungaburra again.
‘‘I played at the Tableland Folk Festival last year so they invited me to do one of these sessions which are once per month,’’ he said.
‘‘It is great because it is for folk music enthusiasts who like at the festival listen to the artist and the story telling.
‘‘They have the Yunguburra markets in the morning and then musicians get to jam from 3pm out the front of the hotel.
‘‘My set starts at 7pm and I get to showcase songs form my albums rather than the typical cover songs you would normally hear in bars so it is different. It is a great compliment that they have asked me to do it and I’m really looking forward to it same way I loved playing at the festival.’’
