Sunshine Coast Junior Eisteddfod 2017 @ Various Locations
Jul 20 @ 11:37 pm – Aug 6 @ 12:37 am

I would like to welcome the competitors and their supporters to our 50th Sunshine Coast Junior Eisteddfod.

In 1967 a small committee, led by Mr John James, recommenced the Nambour Eisteddfod after a lapse of 18 years. 542 students entered the following sections – Piano, Vocal, Brass Instrumental, Art of Speech, Improvisation, Mime and Drama. Max Olding was the music adjudicator and Beverley Langford the speech adjudicator. The following year, dance was added and was included for two years before holding their own event.

In the early nineties, the eisteddfod had grown so large there was a need to divide into different sections. Brass and Woodwind was included in 1991 and the others followed in the next few years.

Today more than 6000 students cross the stage to perform in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Gympie Muster – including Hillbilly Goats @ Various Locations
Aug 24 – Aug 27 all-day

In its 36th year in 2017, Gympie Music Muster has pulled together a stellar all-Aussie line-up led by pop starlet Jessica Mauboy.

The ARIA-winning singer will headline the Queensland festival which boasts a decidedly more country/country rock feel this year, also locking in headliners Adam Brand, Busby Marou and Graeme Connors for the four-day extravaganza.

Mauboy says, “I have ALWAYS dreamed of playing The Muster. This is an honour and a thrill and I am going bring my best country A-game.”

The Muster’s program director Jeff Chandler says, “We’re continuing to build on what we’ve always done, providing a variety of entertainment, while sticking firmly to our country roots.”

Festival favourites, the Hillbilly Goats exude an undeniable passion for mountain music, the instruments and the harmonies.  Their mission is to strip back the layers of modern music and transport you on a journey that began centuries ago when the immigrants first settled in the Appalachian Mountains of America.  These guys aren’t just a band – they’re a show!

Their recordings paint a picture of traditional songs from 1710 through to the 1940’s with a high energy quirky edge.  Featuring Banjo, Bones, Double Bass, Fiddle, Tap Dancing, 3 part Harmonies and more, there is a tale told of the history of Mountain Music’s evolution into Blues, Country & Bluegrass.

If you’re haven’t seen the Hillbilly Goats yet, check them out and see what all the fuss is about.  They sure know how to Raise A Ruckus and you are guaranteed to be entertained – OLD TIME STYLE!
