3. Wirrina Cove Bluegrass Festival


Friday to Sunday, 6 to 8 September

At Wirrina Resort, Second Valley


This fabulous festival had its birth at Wirrina Cove Resort last September. It was a lively, accessible, affordable and extraordinarily high quality festival featuring the best of South Australian bluegrass and acoustic music performers. And its on again over the weekend, 6 to 8 September 2013. This year promises to be just a wee bit bigger (but not huge), just as much (if not more) fun, and still very affordable- check out the Wirrina  Bluegrass Festival website for details; you won't be sorry.

Bob Molloy is looking after one of the venues at the festival - the Acoustic Avenue - and would like to hear from anyone who would like to do a booked 30 minute walk-up spot over the weekend (sort of like an open mic without the mic), so please let me know if you are planning to attend the festival and would like to have a spot.
