Bluegrass inspires young musicians

FOR the first time, Warwick Town Hall will be brought to life with the nostalgic country sounds of bluegrass music.

American and Australian artists will bring their talents to the Rose City, teaching local instrumental students about the musical genre from the Appalachian Mountains in the US.

Bruce Eddiehausen is an instrumental music teacher at primary schools across region.

“This is a great opportunity to learn about new musical genres and all of my kids have bought a ticket, they’re pumped,” he said.

Hoping to inspire his students and make it accessible to them, Mr Eddiehausen convinced organiser Peter Nahyusen to drop the price of tickets.

“The tickets are now $20 for students and I’m hoping it will reignite interest and encourage practice.”

The show originated in Brisbane, but organiser Peter Nahyusen wanted to take musicians back to their country roots.

“Especially because we’re doing it tough with the drought it’s nice to have an enriching music experience for the whole of Warwick as well,” Mr Eddiehausen said.

The best of the best will be present with Josh Goforth, US fiddle champion.

The event will be on Saturday 7th of December at Warwick Town Hall on Palmerin Street.

Tickets are $35 for adults and $20 for students and seniors, including supper.
