Beechworth Country Music Spectacular
The 19th annual Kelly Country Pick will be staged over the weekend of Friday 18th to Sunday 20th August, a celebration of Bluegrass and Old time Country Music and centered on the historic town of Beechworth in north eastern Victoria.
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.
If you're new to the scene you might be surprised at the range of instruments that come together to make Bluegrass and Old Time Country music.
