The guitar and saxophone playing of Duo Histoire floated across the paddock on a beautiful Sunday morning after which a number of groups picnicked at the creek before the afternoon concert. Videos of some of the performances with be available soon.
A musical journey in Gloucester
The idea for the Craven Creek Concerts started when we bought our piece of Gloucester paradise, 'Kingfisher'. The old barn on the farm had a stage that was crying out to be used.
In 2013 the first concert was held on a beautiful September afternoon to a packed audience. The response to the concert encouraged us to make it an annual springtime event hence the formation of the Craven Creek Music Association Inc., a not-for-profit registered charitable organisation.
Your support has encouraged us to continue the concert series which has continued to grow is scale and in the number of people attending. We are excited to be able to bring you some more amazing performers in 2022.
