Professionals arrive at Bony Mountain for festival

ALREADY under way, the Bony Mountain Country Music Festival will step up a gear today.

The festival began on Tuesday with the walk-up artists, but the professional artists will take the stage from today.

One of those acts will be Murphy's Pigs, a 10-piece band that won Artist of the Year 2013 at the Australian Celtic Music Awards.

"They will have a full two-hour show (tonight)," event organiser Norma O'Hara Murphy said.

"They're fantastic so we're very excited to have them."

As well as Murphy's Pigs, the festival will also feature a host of other artists such as Jeff Brown, Steve Passfield, Keith Jamieson and Dean Perrett, among others. "This is our fourth year - our 'Little Festival in the Bush' continues to grow," Norma said.

"We are very proud of what we have achieved over the past four years.

"This year we are supporting Allora Southern Cross Care.

"Come out and buy some tickets for our raffle to support a wonderful Warwick and District facility for our precious oldies."

Day passes are $20 and kids are free.

The festival runs until Sunday. It is expected to run from 9am-9pm today and 10am-9pm both days of the weekend.
