Balladeers Bulletin


We thank our contributors and advertisers for your valued support of the Balladeers Bulletin.

We thank the members/music fans for your continued support of bush ballad music and it's artists, and your support of The Australian Bush Balladeers Association and the Balladeers Bulletin. ~ The A.B.B.A.




General articles can be up to approx 500 words.

Tour dates: please include separate to article.

Articles may contain CD mention, but if there are prices/sale details mentioned, the article contributor must take out an ad (or have) an ad in that edition of the Bulletin.

Articles contributed that mention CDs prices, contacts etc will have those parts edited. Why?

This is done in view of the fact that bulletin advertising is very reasonably priced, and it is not fair to those who do advertise regularly if an article
contributor advertise to sell product via articles without advertising.

This rule also applies to festivals and major event organisers re articles of artist listings at Festivals as well. Ads must apply.

Advertising support ensures we have a great colour magazine every edition for readers and all contributors to enjoy and take advantage of.

Album release reviews usually include contacts.

Re pics: If sending multiple festival photos, please forward on a disc to The Editor, Peter Coad, PO Box 7, Bundanoon NSW 2578 OR you can send a DROP BOX link via .

Photos should be hi resolution or at least very clear & NAMES of persons in photos included and photographer (if known)

Note: Paper photo copied photos will not print well.



Contributors should always expect a 'reply' email from the ABBA that their email has been received for the bulletin.

If a contributors news email does not receive a reply or is not included in the expected edition then that email may have not been received, or accidentally not saved to the bulletin folder.

Fortunately such circumstances rarely arise, but if it should, the first course of action by the sender is to immediately ring (or text) a query to 0428 480 545 so the email can be either sent again/located/or updated before the deadline of the next edition.

* If snail mail is being sent please ENSURE mail is sent at least 2 weeks BEFORE the deadline! :)
