YARRA JUNCTION FIDDLERS CONVENTION 2014
21st to 23rd of FEBRUARY , 2014 NOTE YARRA JUNCTION IS ONE MONTH EARLIER THAN IN 2013!!!!!!!!
Camp Eureka, Tarrango Road
STRING BAND, BLUEGRASS, OLD-TIMEY, CAJUN, COUNTRY BLUES, HAWAIIAN, JUG, AUSTRALIAN HILLBILLY, TRADITIONAL ROOTS MUSIC
CONCERTS, DANCES, WORKSHOPS
The usual suspects. Yarra Junction stage, 2009. Cajun dance band.
The Yarra Junction Fiddlers' Convention is Australia's biggest and oldest running festival/party for players of Bluegrass, string band, old timey music, cajun music and their friends and relations.
It is not just about fiddles, but as Gid Tanner said,"the fiddle drives the band".
Banjos, guitars, bass, mandolins, dobros, autoharps and even Cajun accordians get a look in too - but no electric instruments (sorry Richard), and no drums. Concertinas and mouth-harps? Of course.
