Young stars set to per­form

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Coun­try mu­sic has a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing able to cross all age bar­ri­ers. And an ex­am­ple of its fam­ily-friendly ap­proach will be more than ev­i­dent at Hor­sham Sound­shell on the Satur­day af­ter­noon of the 11th an­nual fes­ti­val.

Ge­orgie and Lachie Mc­gen­nisken, from Gipp­s­land and only 10 and 12 re­spec­tively, will per­form a 20-minute set af­ter win­ning a most-pop­u­lar artists sec­tion dur­ing the fes­ti­val’s busk­ing com­pe­ti­tion last year.

Fes­ti­val co-or­di­na­tor Lyall Wheaton said the Mc­gen­niskens were ‘by far’ the youngest artists to per­form at the sound­shell dur­ing the event.

“Since last year’s Hor­sham Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val the pair has been in high de­mand. They have pro­duced a CD and did walk-up per­for­mances at last year’s Mil­dura Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val and this year’s Tam­worth Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val,” he said.

Busk­ing has opened the door for many en­ter­tain­ers and the Hor­sham fes­ti­val will again pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to busk at Hor­sham Plaza be­tween 9am and 11am be­fore the ACE Ra­dio Spec­tac­u­lar at Sawyer Park on Satur­day week.

Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers have also ar­ranged an op­por­tu­nity for walk-up per­for­mances at Hor­sham River­side Car­a­van Park on Tues­day from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.
