MAKING THE MUSIC LAST LONGER
We enjoy Girgarre Moosic Muster and Jigarre Jammin’ so much that some of us have got together to make the music last longer! These groups perform around the area, although some are currently in recess due to the pandemic.
The Pure Drop
The Pure Drop plays songs from the Australian and Celtic traditions of hardship, love or murder and mayhem, plus some more light-hearted themes. A group of seven very active retirees, available for Aged Care, Fundraising concerts, Morning and Afternoon Melodies. Lively and loud. Wallace on fiddle, harmonica; Irene on guitar, accordion; Shane on banjo, guitar, whistle; Pete on harp, guitar, mandolin; Geoff on fiddle; Bernadine on baritone ukulele; Lyn on bass ukulele, mandolin.
You'll find us on facebook.
As a community group we support the learning needs of ukulele players of all abilities within the Bendigo area, providing members with a safe, inclusive and supportive environment to learn and advance their ukulele craft.
