Great Aussie Tune Swap - BMC & No Such Thing

In July a group of Concert Party members travelled to Kiama to join No Such Thing in the inaugural Great Aussie Tune Swap. The idea worked so well we took it to Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival and hope to take it further afield! 

Members of the Bush Music Club Concert Party attended the Great Aussie Tune Swap at Kiama on Saturday 19 July 2014. The good folk from the South Coast of NSW were kind enough to organize the event which, it is hoped, may become an annual event.

There were around 40 musicians present and the day consisted of playing tunes alternatively from the Bush Music Club booklet and those provided by the No Such Thing Band and other musicians from the South Coast and Southern Tablelands areas.

Our hosts provided us with a most sumptuous luncheon and at the close of play we repaired to a local Chinese restaurant where we performed for our supper !

All those present advised that they thoroughly enjoyed the day which was both educational and fruitful . Our thanks go to all those talented, generous and kind people on the South Coast who organized and helped make the outing such a success.

In the evening we took over the local Chinese restaurant (with the permission of the owners) & had a great meal & a fantastic session.

The waitress loves bush dancing & stayed past the end of her shift to enjoy the music.  

 The cooks also enjoyed the music, leaving their kitchen on a number of occasions to listen.




The following day some of us went to Yvonne & Kath's place & the music continued.
