Top WA musicians to rock local venue
Dingup House will showcase some of the musical talent that comes from regional areas, by hosting a concert with a bluegrass feel starring two country artists.
Bridgetown musician Tracey Barnett and Kimberley musician Tanya Ransom will be playing songs influenced by several styles on January 20.
Both artists received nominations for best regional act at the West Australian Music Industry Awards for two years running and Barnett won this year.
“I know all the nominees, how hard they work and how talented they are so it was a huge surprise and a great honour to win, but I feel all of us were deserving,” she said.
Dingup House owner Chris Utech said Barnett had contacted her and asked to use the venue for a concert. “Tracy Barnett contacted me because she thought this venue would be a great match for the style of music that she has,” Mrs Utech said.
“This will be our fourth concert that we have had out here and they usually have the same feel to them.
“The music they play will make a great atmosphere for a picnic and the weather should be lovely, too.”
Tickets can be purchased on the night for $20, with children under 16 free.
