3rd Annual Wirrina Bluegrass & Acoustic Roots Festival
The event in its third year is held at Wirrina Resort which has undergone a big refurbishment and taken over by new management. More than 70 of the resort's rooms have been renovated as well as the restaurant and foyer areas.
Whether you want to jam with other musicians, learn new skills at a workshop or just sit back and enjoy the sounds of Bluegrass, there'll be more sessions, more concerts, and a range of special accommodation packages in the newly refurbished rooms.

Some of the festival's favourite performers, including members of the Old South Bluegrass Band will facilitate ten workshops covering a range of instruments (including vocals), where attendees can come away from the festival with new skills, knowledge and tunes.

Festival-goers will have the opportunity to practice their newly acquired skills by playing along with some of the festival's programmed acts, named the "Led Sessions".

Impromptu music sessions will also carry on late into the night, bringing together acoustic musicians of many different skill levels to play together. The festival will include an unplugged venue that has a busking feel about it, with event organisers happy for the hat to go out. A third amplified stage has been scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, with attendees able to register themselves for a 20 minute performance on the Open Mic.
