Music festival Sunday

THERE will be a great talent line-up at the sixth Sale Music Festival in Sale Botanic Gardens this Sunday.

This free community event will begin at 11am and run through until 7pm, with continuous music provided by a wide cross section of Gippsland musical talent.

The organising committee has arranged for a feast of quality musical styles which will appeal to a wide range of tastes, ranging from classic 50s and 60s rock‘n’roll, to blues and roots, country, acappella, pop, alternate, indie, covers, folk and more.

The family-friendly event is strongly promoted as a picnic event where people are encouraged to take their own picnic, but food will also be available, provided by local service clubs.

Money raised by these service clubs will remain with these groups for their community activities.

Each of the eight hours of the festival comprises 30 minute to one hour performances.

Free creative children’s activities will be provided during the middle of the day.

Highlight acts for the festival include the extremely talented Daniel Wayne Spencer Trio, known for touring and recording with the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Jon Stevens, Richard Clapton, Leo Sayer, Rogue Traders, Doc Neeson, Joe Camilleri and Martha Davis, as well as Drums of War, which was crowned the national A Cappella Champions 2015 at the Australian A Cappella Championship, as well as receiving awards for best vocal percussionist, best contemporary song and best soloist.

Other performers will include Rusty Rockers, Frank, In Good Company, the Soultanas, Baxter, Amnesia Blues and Barrie Jessep and The Vibe.

Look for the four-page Sale Music Festival lift-out in Tuesday’s Gippsland Times.
