In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, the monthly Sydney Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Get-togethers in the Annandale Community Centre were suspended from March 2020 right through to the end of the year.



We have put in our booking application to the Inner West Council for the Sydney Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Get-together on the first Saturday each month in 2021 at the Annandale Community Centre (70 Johnston St, Annandale, NSW). If successful....

the first get-together will be on SATURDAY 3 APRIL 2021.

We’ll have to adapt to whatever COVID Safe rules and recommendations are in place at the time, so we’ll keep you updated as plans develop. At present, the Council allows 35 people (+organisers) in the Back Hall at Annandale Community Centre.

We had to include a COVIDSafe Plan with our application, and we are now registered as a COVIDSafe organisation.

Check out there BTCMSA Facebook page for information about updates on the Get-Together and on other events taking place.
