PAUL KELLY SELLS OUT REGIONAL TOUR

PAUL KELLY SELLS OUT REGIONAL TOUR – NEXT STOP BLUESFEST  SATURDAY 2ND OCTOBER 2021

That means the only way to catch Paul Kelly in the months ahead will be at Bluesfest, where he and his full band headline on Saturday 2nd October.
And with demand for the Bluesfest 4-day October Edition running pretty hot too don’t leave it too long to decide. After all, waiting for you is an aaaaamazing ‘all-aussie’ lineup, superb food and drink, wonderful Byron Bay beaches and hinterland, and beautiful spring weather.
What’s not to love … so head over to our Bluesfest website now
Paul Kelly is a dear friend of Bluesfest and never fails to bring a special performance to the Bluesfest stage. After all, who can forget his 2015 appearance – when he brought an ensemble of the most-talented musicians to Bluesfest to perform ‘The Merri Sessions’ – an absolute show-stopper!
With 27 studio albums, film scores, co-writes, and side projects his body of work is virtually bottomless and genre-defying as Paul Kelly is one of those rare artists to spin a long career out of a hunger to explore new directions, from the tender songcraft of Post to the hard-edged rock’n’roll of Gossip, to country and folk, bluegrass (see Smoke, Foggy Highway) and the soul revue of The Merri Soul Sessions.
He has been coming to Bluesfest since 1999 and returns in October for his 8th appearance.
He’s shared the stage with the who’s who of Australian musical talent – and every performance is special. We are super-excited to see our ‘national treasure’ Paul Kelly back on the Bluesfest stage this October.
Joining Paul on the Saturday lineup will be co-headliner Tash Sultana, and festival favourites Kasey Chambers, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Ziggy Alberts, The Angels, Ross Wilson and The Peaceniks, Chain, The Black Sorrows, Jeff Lang, Fiona Boyes, Ash Grunwald, Kate Miller-Heidke, Mama Kin Spender, Nathan Cavaleri, All Our Exes Live In Texas, Pacey, King & Doley, Pierce Brothers and discovery artists ROSHANI, Lambros. And Electrik Lemonade.
Come and join Paul Kelly and his full band when he headlines Saturday 2nd October.

Bluesfest : The October Edition will take place over 4 days from Friday 1st October to Monday 4th October 2021 at the Byron Events Farm, Tyagarah, NSW, AUSTRALIA.
All ticket options plus camping, parking and VIP are on sale now via Moshtix.

Eat the Street serves up delicious fun for all ages

If you love your food and music, then Lismore is the place to be on Saturday, 21 August as the iconic Eat the Street food, art and music festival returns for its 7th year with a new naming sponsor – the Lismore Workers Club.

Lismore City Council’s Manager of Liveable and Active Communities Tony Duffy said Council was excited that the Lismore Workers Club has come on board as the naming sponsor of the event.

“The Workers Club is a great local Lismore business and has a long history of supporting the local community. It is very fitting that they are now an integral part of the Northern Rivers premier food event,” he said.

Lismore Workers President Ian Harmon, speaking on behalf of the board of directors, said: “Lismore Workers has always been a part of Eat The Street and we’re excited to see the event become bigger and better every year.”

“It’s great to see the diversity of our food culture in Lismore on display, and it always gets a great turnout. We hope our involvement helps continue to make this event a continuing success for our local area.”

This year, the festival will take place along Magellan and Carrington Streets and in the newly refurbished Lismore Laneways where you will discover outstanding local food and beverages, art, roving entertainers, and much more.

Mr Duffy said in the past, the festival had attracted more than 25,000 people. However, this year there will be some changes due to COVID.

“As everyone in the community knows, everything is fluid due to COVID with changing restrictions,” he said.

“This year, the festival will still be a free event, but it will be ticketed and visitors must register to gain entry via Magellan Street between Keen and Molesworth. This is to make sure our community remains COVID-safe.”

There will also be two sessions: noon to 3pm and 4pm to 7pm.

Sit out on the street, under the trees, and try food from all over the Northern Rivers region, or purchase a ticket to the VIP Garden party for $110 (over 18 years only).

Eat the Street coincides with the SHINE light art festival, which runs after dark from Thursday, 19 August to Tuesday, 21 August on Molesworth Street. Both events are managed carefully in accordance to COVID-19 health guidelines to ensure community safety.

Northern Rivers Youth Orchestra 2021

In light of the current COVID-19 restrictions in place across NSW, the Northern Rivers Youth Orchestra 2021 scheduled for 6 – 8th July will not be able to proceed at this time.
This is very disappointing news to have to share with you all. Everyone involved has put in so much work preparing for the return of this wonderful event.
However, this is a postponement – not a cancellation.

NRYO 2021 will be rescheduled to take place during the September school holidays with the same program of repertoire. Stay tuned for confirmation of the new dates.
