This coming weekend, Thredbo will come alive for a weekend of flawless country music under an open sky as Australia’s favourite ski resort will prove, yet again, that the warmer months have just as much to offer.
With an impressive line-up of talent, the Snowy Mountains Country Music Festival provides an amazing opportunity to come and enjoy some of the best country music while experiencing the Snowy Mountains in summer.
On Saturday 21st March the festival, which features a main stage concert set in a natural amphitheatre, surrounded by Australia’s highest mountains, will kick off at 11:30am with Doug Bruce and his band The Tailgaters. Doug’s steady rise on the charts and in the hearts of country lovers will provide the perfect opener for the 2015 Snowy Mountains Country Music Festival.
As the alpine region heats up, 12:45pm will see international act Wylie & The Wild West take to the stage with one of the few authentic voices of the real American West. By 2pm our very own Catherine Britt will grace the stage to showcase a musical repertoire infused with country, roots and folk.
3:30pm welcomes a man whose profound musical career has seen him tour with the likes Taylor Swift and Alan Jackson as well as perform in front of 50,000 people in Nashville at the world’s biggest country music festival. Having also received a CMA Global Artist Award, Morgan Evans is a singer and songwriter who won’t be slowing down any time soon.
Singer/songwriter sister duo Sophie and Celeste Clabburn that make up The Sunny Cowgirls, will be centre stage at 5pm, bringing their perfectly suited, unique Australian sound to the mountains followed by Australia’s most successful country music group The McClymonts at 6:30pm.
Finally, the most anticipated act of the evening, headliner Adam Brand – one of the country’s best-loved and most successful recording artists – will enthral the masses under the stars at 8:15pm.
The Snowy Mountains Country Music Festival not only celebrates the best of the best, but also recognises and celebrates great new talent. Party at night with The Viper Creek Band on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st March at the Honky Tonk Keller Bar and experience the country Bluegrass in The Village with Pete Denahy for breakfast on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd March.
