SYDNEY BLUEGRASS & OLD-TIME MUSIC                      GET-TOGETHER

First Saturday each month (March-Dec) in the Annandale Neighbourhood Centre, 79 Johnston St, Annandale. Safety In Numbers workshop: 6.30pm. Open mic concert: 7.45pm. Jamming all night! All are welcome. Suggested entry donation is $6 BTCMSA members/concession, $8 others (under 18 free). 

 

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.

 

For people who want to play on the concert, here's how times are allocated:

  • Up to 20 minutes for bands performing in the bluegrass, old-time and traditional country music styles 
  • Up to 15 minutes for individuals, duos, etc performing in the bluegrass, old-time and traditional country music styles.
  • New performers – 1-2 numbers

 

The actual amount of time depends on the number of bands, etc that want to play on that night! 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. 

 

We gratefully acknowledge Leichhardt Council's assistance with a discounted hall rental rate.
