Music for cause at Nambung Station
An influx of country music- lovers has helped raise $18,000 for eight different charities at the Nambung Country Music Muster.
Organisers described this year’s event as the best yet, with a 1000-strong crowd enjoying music, poetry and a great country atmosphere last month.
From October 24-28, crowds gathered at Nambung Station, 200km north of Perth and next to WA’s world-famous Pinnacles.
Founded just four years ago, the four-day camping event features music, poetry and dancing.
This year’s event raised money for eight different charities:
Anglicare – Street Connect Project.
Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group.
Make a Wish Albany.
A Moora charity (yet to be decided).
Cervantes Men’s Shed.
Cervantes Swimming Pontoon Fund.
Cervantes Historical Society.
Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Feature artists included country music singer Brian Letton, Sandie “Dolly Parton” Dodd, Marie Hodson, Banjo Maestro, Ian Simpson and Grammy Award-winner Lucky Oceans.
Next year’s event will be held from October 22-25.
