Top Acts for Bluegrass Festival
The seventh Wirrina Bluegrass and Acoustic Roots Festival on November 16 to 18 has drawn a lineup of excellent bluegrass, old timey, blues and roots musicians.
Many of the acts come back year after year for the great vibe and relaxed setting of the Wirrina Cove Holiday Park.
The picking and jamming goes on all weekend in and around the campground kiosk, and the open mic tent is quickly booked out every year.
This year's top acts include Crooked Road, playing original music that combines the bluegrass tradition with contemporary flair, and The Sherrahs, who are one of Australia’s strongest harmony based country music bands.
The festival, one of SA’s musical ‘hidden gems’ is steadily attracting more music lovers every year.

TWO TO ENTERTAIN AT ENCOUNTER BAY
Lucky Starr and Rodney Vincent are sharing the limelight to entertain with music and laughter at the Encounter Bay Football Club on Friday, November 23.
While ‘schoolies’ are celebrating in Victor Harbor, there’s enjoyment for others away from the city centre.
Rodney has many local fans who have regularly attended recent shows at Hindmarsh Valley Hall. A venue change and a new stage partner will create a wonderful evening – especially What a Big Surprise, the song written and recorded with Gene Pitney.
Lucky Starr, whose most popular single in the 60s I’ve Been Everywhere, is a song remembered by many as a novelty tongue twister which name-drops many Australian towns. He was inducted into the Australian Country Music Hall of Fame in 1980, and during the mid 80’s he performed in Victor Harbor with a concert at Encounter Bay Football Club.
Bookings are advised. For information, call 8554 5236 or 0428 899 710.
