What's Happening



G'day everyone,

2020 certainly become a very uncertain time for Australia and the world with the Corona Virus (Covid-19) taking great toll in not only the music world but all areas of work, business and personal life as well along with the lives of many..

But as they say, 'We are all in this together' and so I sincerely hope that ‘together’ (socially distanced) we will all be able to safely navigate our way through this storm.

As we head in 2021 we look forward to a return to a more 'normal' year musically and healthwise for everyone and a return to our normal Tamworth Country Music activities at the 'Balladeers Homestead'.

The Balladeers Bulletin continued to run each edition throughout 2020 and as we go into 2021 we will of course be adding all the news that our members may have, along with profiles, historic points of musical interest, reviews and much more to the upcoming 2021 editions.

If you have tourdates or tours coming up please let us know so they can be placed on this site and also in the bulletins.

Every little bit of promotion helps get the word out.

Contact me if you wish to discuss any items or advertising for the bulletin via info@bushballadeers.com.au or email material anytime.
