Top WA mu­si­cians to rock lo­cal venue

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

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.
