Opportunity for ‘local’ performers
The 10th annual Horsham Country Music Festival is much more than concerts and professional performers.
The event also provides an opportunity for Wimmera country-music artists to strut their stuff and continues to grow in popularity.
A festival ‘local artist’ feature will be on the Friday of the festival in the heart of Horsham’s central business district in Roberts Place.
Performances, with Lyall Wheaton and Di Trotter as emcees, run from 10am to 4pm, and this year feature 12 artists.
In recent years the local artists segment has included nine guests who performed for 20 minutes. This year the 12 artists will each have an opportunity to perform for half an hour. The line-up includes The 2Ps, Don Mitchell and John Smith, Lawrence Country and Norm and Marlene Mclean of Horsham, Christine Johnson of Stawell, Ron Pannan of Natimuk, The Stumps from Murtoa, Leo Tellefson, Donald, Sandra Loats, Rupanyup, A. J. Bunn, Pomonal and Penny Burke, Pimpinio.
