The Kelly Country Pick features some of Australia's best Bluegrass and Old Time Country musicians.


The Kelly Country Pick beginnings go back to 1999 when a couple of musicians and their families got together for a relaxed weekend of country music. Today it attracts as many as 500 musicians and is still growing steadily.

The event is held at Beechworth's 'Old Priory', a 19th Century Catholic convent. All workshops and afternoon concerts are staged at the priory with evening concerts held at local hotels.
