Musicians groovin' into town

AS THE weather warms up, live music will soon appear at community events across the Western Downs region.

Western Downs Regional Council has teamed up with community organisations to provide live musical entertainment at events including markets, library Fun Palace events and two art exhibition opening nights.

Community and Cultural Development Councillor Kaye Maguire said the Groovin' into Town initiative was an opportunity to value-add to existing activities throughout the Western Downs.

"Having live musicians performing at 16 events across our region over the next three months will really add a positive lift to our already-popular events,” Cr Maguire said.

"We also have school students from Miles and Chinchilla involved, so Groovin' into Town is a real community-based initiative.

"Different musical styles will be covered including jazz, country and even an electronic pop duo called Noti, so there is something to suit most musical tastes.”

Some local emerging artists have also been booked to provide opportunities for exposure and to build confidence for our home-grown talent.

" The series kicks off with country artist Peter Campbell performing at the Chinchilla Markets in the Showgrounds Sunday September 16 from 9am.” Cr Maguire said.
