Accoustic music a hit at Easter

Bourke’s annual Easter music festival is developing into a unique opportunity for emerging and established artists.

This year, the festival was billed as the acoustic sessions, with an eclectic line-up of performers on the outdoor stage at the Back O’Bourke Exhibition Centre.

The free event was also a night for festivalgoers to experience country and blues music on stage, and to appreciate the location, and atmosphere under the vast sky and open spaces of Bourke.

Neil Murray was the headline act and was well supported by local ‘bard of Bourke’ Andrew Hull, performing as Hully and the Yabbie Traps and other acoustic vocalists and musicians.

Hully brought his unique twist on life away from the fast lane, and as always, his passion for the bush resonated with the crowd.

The success of the acoustic sessions is likely to see the music festival as an integral part of the annual Back O’Bourke Easter Festival, but Andrew said there was still room to improve.
