First Saturday each month (Mar-Dec), 6.30 pm

Annandale Community Centre, 79 Johnston St, Annandale (NSW)

The Sydney Bluegrass & Old-time Music Get-togethers have been temporarily suspended from March 2020 because of the Coronavirus pandemic. The situation will be reassessed in June 2020 and an Update on the situation will be posted here. 

The Sydney Get-together is held on the first Saturday each month (March-Dec) in the Annandale Community Centre, 79 Johnston St, Annandale.


Safety In Numbers workshop: 6.30pm.

Open mic concert: 7.45pm.

Jamming all night!


Suggested entry donation is $6 BTCMSA members/conc, $8 others (under 18 free). All welcome.

Catch up with others who share your musical interests!


One of the aims is to encourage people to form bands and work on their performance skills. For the open mic concert, preference is given to bands who play bluegrass, old-time or traditional country music. The event is entirely acoustic*, with a great PA provided for the concert.


There are sometimes special concert nights where there is a visiting guest (eg. from the USA) or where one of the local bands is being featured. One thing for sure, it's a different show each month. Everyone volunteers their time.


*Acoustic means totally unplugged, no individual instrument amplifiers or DI's.


JAM SESSIONS ARE OPEN - you are welcome to join in and play bluegrass or old-time acoustic music.
