Music will rock bush
TWO of Australia’s biggest rock music acts will headline a special charity concert in Dirranbandi this winter.
Paul Kelly and Cold Chisel’s Ian Moss will make their way to the small town on June 2 to help raise funds for the Dirranbandi P–10 State School agricultural studies program.
The program, which started at the Dirranbandi State School back in 2016, offers students an opportunity to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to live and work on the land.
The event host, Dirranbandi Pastoral and Agricultural Association, is working towards sustaining the program, offering work experience to students on holiday, funding scholarships to agricultural colleges and supporting those who stay in the community.
Event organiser Danny Sheehan said the program was working to combat the decreasing population in small towns, with the purpose of the concert to raise both funds and awareness for small town living.
