Federal grants to help make farming smarter Press Release Member for Eden Monaro Peter Hendy has welcomed innovation grants for agriculture, recently announced by the Minister for Agriculture, Barnaby Joyce. Peter Hendy said 31 new projects are being funded across Australia as part of the Australian Government’s $21.2 million Innovation Grants. “These grants have been awarded to a range of industry and research organisations. As the Minister noted, they are all about developing tools to reduce input costs and generate better returns at the farmgate, while making sure our natural resources are here to support future generations.

“The grants really sheet home the enormous potential for research and the use of new technologies and tools for our agricultural sector,” Peter Hendy said. Grants ranging between $250,000 and $1.5 million were available to help drive the development and adoption of innovative practices across agriculture, fishing, aquaculture and farm forestry. Three innovative projects that will be of interest to many farmers in EdenMonaro are: Weed, plant pest surveillance Funding up to $935,000 to Plant Health Australia Limited to deliver a 'Virtual Coordination Centre' that

will help agricultural industries, community groups and jurisdictions to access and contribute to real-time surveillance information on weeds and plant pests. It will link existing mechanisms, and promote the establishment of new field

tools, allowing stakeholders to contribute to and access information via a seamless national weed and pest surveillance system. Weed, plant pest management Funding up to $700,000 to the Department of Trade & Investment Regional

Infrastructure and Services to develop the practical application of state of the art un-manned aerial vehicles and imaging technology to on-farm property management of invasive weeds and pests. The project aims to improve the regional detection of existing and new incursions of invasive species. The results will provide information for land managers to assist them to manage and control weeds on their properties. This innovative method significantly reduces the time between detection and mapping, allowing a quick response to new incursions or previously unidentified invasive species populations.

Sustainable dairy practices Funding up to $341,000 to Dairy Australia Limited Farming Systems Group Incorporated to allow the dairy industry to respond to market signals to promote sustainable practices. The project will assist dairy farmers to access industry best practice fertiliser and soil management advice to help optimise fertiliser application. It will also enable the Australian dairy industry to demonstrate progress against industry sustainability targets whilst adding value to farmer decision-making.

By Marion Whalan The Bungendore Rural Services Dog High Jump competitions will be a highlight of the 2014 Bungendore Show. The event showcases the amazing ability of a range of dogs in jumping heights up to two metres. After a successful exhibition event in 2013, the Show Committee with the generous support of Greg Sims and the team from Bungendore Rural Services, have expanded the dog high jump event into two categories. The events will cater for the serious dog high jump aficionados as well as children and their smaller dogs (under 30cm at their shoulder). Greg from BRS did not hesitate in supporting both events for 2014 “The dog high jump was so much fun for everyone, spectators, their owners and also clearly the dogs who love to jump,” Greg said. The Dog High Jump will commence at 10am on show day, with entries open from 9.30am. Don’t miss it! Check out the competition rules in the 2014 Show Schedule – available in all the local Bungendore businesses as well as online at www.bungendoreshow.com.au which rewards safe motorists and encourages others to obey the law on our roads. Since the launch of the scheme 408,000 people have been rewarded for driving safely across the state. The figures indicate that motorists in regional NSW are more likely to receive the 50 per cent discount than their city counterparts. The 50 per cent discount applies whether the licence is renewed for one, three or five years. Pensioners are unaffected as they pay nothing for their licence.

Bungendore Muster showcases Australian Bush Ballads

Lucky escape for two families

Press Release Two families had a lucky escape from serious injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident on the Kings Highway at Mulloon, east of Bungendore on Sunday afternoon. At about 4.30pm a Toyota Camry sedan being driven in a westerly direction by a 42 year old man with his wife and three children aged between 5 and 11 years on board crossed onto the wrong side of the road and collided with a Ford Territory Sedan heading in the opposite direction. The Ford Territory was being driven by a 41 year old man with his wife and three children aged between 7 and 3 on board. The Ford Territory lost its driver's side rear wheel and Peter Coad and the Coad Sisters will perform at the Muster suspension in the impact, and swerved and rolled, ending Press Release earth' friendly atmosphere.

Palerang fires under control P1 The bushfires that have broken out in and bordering the Palerang Council area over the last week are now under control or extinguished. On Thursday a blaze straddling the railway line at Burbong was quickly brought under control by ten fire trucks from the Lake George Fire Zone, the ACT and ACT Forests, two helicopters and a bulldozer. The fire caused the afternoon train service from Sydney to be terminated at Goulburn and passengers completed their journey by bus.

On Saturday three fires broke out in the Braidwood district. At Neringla, south of Araluen, fire burnt out 59 ha of bushland with difficult access. Later fires broke out in forest in South Forest Way, Harolds Cross, south west of Braidwood and in bushland near the Shoalhaven River at Oallen. By John Mitchell

Beware of CryptoLocker malware

Bungendore Computer Service’s Udo Gerlach checking out malware

Scholarship deadline close Press Release First-year university students have two days to apply for the Braidwood and Bungendore Community Bank® Branches Scholarship. The scholarship will support two academically capable local students who may experience challenges with accessing tertiary study. Braidwood and Bungendore Community Bank® Chairman Shane Holness said that with university offers released this week, now was the perfect time to apply for the scholarship. “Applications for first-year students close on Friday 24 January, and I urge those seeking support to apply,” Mr. Holness said. “Some students may face challenges in their ability to further their education and the program has been designed to give the students an opportunity

to pursue their dreams.” Mr. Holness said the scholarship support was part of the branch’s ongoing commitment to building stronger communities. ‘ With the support of our partner, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, we are now able to help students in Palerang Shire take up the opportunity to start tertiary education,” he said. ‘’Without this financial support they may never have this option.” “We’re proud to financially support local students to continue their education, which will not only be a benefit to them but also to the wider community.” The Braidwood and Bungendore Community Bank® Scholarship will support two local students with tertiary studyrelated costs. The successful applicants will initially receive funding for P6 one year and depending

Press Release Bungendore Computers Service's Udo Gerlach was recently asked about a new piece of malware called CryptoLocker that many antivirus programs can't get rid of. CryptoLocker is a particularly nasty piece of c that can effectively destroy files on Windowsbased PCs beyond the ability of any data recovery process, Udo said. “Unlike other viruses, which may simply delete your files, allowing for the possibility of some file recovery, CryptoLocker will securely encrypt them, making recovery impossible without the encryption key held by the attackers. This is offered only in exchange for a ransom payment. “Paying the required fee is also no guarantee that your files will be decrypted and restored to you. Other malware has employed similar tactics in the past, but CryptoLocker's encryption is much more secure and is

currently not possible to crack. “The steps to guard against CryptoLocker are essentially the same good practices that should be employed to guard against any malware attack or hardware failure. “Make sure you're using decent internet security software and that it's kept up to date. Thankfully, most internet security applications can now detect and remove CryptoLocker, but are only of use if they catch it before the encryption occurs. Udo added, “The Australian Communications and Media Authority's Bruce Matthews says the malware is most often spread by email and/ or file attachments. It's sent out by cyber criminals. A user clicks on the email and then the program runs quietly in the background. It's not until CryptoLocker is finished locking up the files that a ransom message appears. By then it is to late."

Palerang joins City-to-Soil P5 goes to our landfill sites and is buried. It’s such a waste of what is quite a valuable source of nutrients. Not only does it take up valuable space at considerable expense, the nutrients can’t be re-used. It really is about closing the loop and delivering back to the environment some of what gets taken out.” “Another great advantage of this project is the benefit to Council itself. With the impending closure of the Bungendore, Macs Reef and Braidwood landfills, and the previous closure of Captains Flat landfill, Council will have to take non-recyclable waste from the Council area to either ACT landfill or the Woodlawn waste facility near Tarago. Both of these sites charge significant amounts per tonne for waste disposal, so it is in Council’s interest to minimise the amount going to these facilities. This process will also

significantly decrease methane emissions from our landfills. “It really is a win-win-win situation. The environment benefits, agriculture benefits and ratepayers benefit” Mr Ellison said. The introduction of the City to Soil kitchen waste collections in the Palerang Council area has been assisted by grant funding from the NSW Environmental Trust. The funding has also assisted similar projects in the Goulburn-Mulwaree and Lachlan Council areas. Collections will commence on the 19 February in Braidwood and Captains Flat and the 20 February in Bungendore. Local residents will receive their 240L bins, kitchen bins and compostable bags in early February. An information pack will be included with every delivered bin. A public education campaign will also be implemented around the time of commencement.

Walk your way to better health

COMMUNITY EVENTS IN THE PALERANG DISTRICT

Press Release Palerang residents are being encouraged to walk their way to better health with the launch of the new pedometer library loan scheme called 10,000 Steps. The Southern NSW Medicare Local has partnered with Palerang Council to develop the scheme, aimed at encouraging residents to walk 10,000 steps every day. “More than half of Australia’s adults are not active enough to gain health benefits,” says SNSWML’s Health Promotion Officer, Bridie Kenna. “Walking 10,000 steps a day can help you maintain a healthy weight, increase your fitness and strength, improve your self esteem and mental health, and cut your risk of heart disease by almost half.

their local library for free and see just how easy and fun it can be to achieve those 10,000 steps. The pedometer counts your steps and the kit comes with healthy lifestyle tips and local walking guides to motivate and sustain an exercise habit. Ms Kenna explained that the 10,000 Steps project aims to increase the day-to-day activity of Australians by encouraging use of pedometers to accumulate 'incidental' physical activity as part of everyday living. The 10,000 Steps website can provide support, free resources and information. “We are excited to be working with local councils in south east NSW to motivate local communities, workplaces and individuals to increase their physical activity levels through 10,000 steps,” Ms Kenna said.

Palerang ready for City-to-Soil Press Release Residents of Bungendore, Braidwood and Captains Flat will soon be taking their waste minimisation efforts to a whole new level, and helping agriculture along the way. Palerang Council is about to commence a landmark trial to assess the impacts of rolling out green-waste and organics collection services across the three townships. The trial will involve approximately 2,000 households in the three townships receiving a 240L green-lidded wheelie bin, a free six-litre kitchen bins and compostable bin liners for the collection of food scraps. These scraps can be combined with other organic waste such as grass clippings, small diameter branches, garden plant waste, pulled weeds and animal manure, in the 240L green waste bin.

Council will empty the greenlidded bin on a fortnightly basis as part of its waste collection cycle and deliver the organic waste to a privately run composting facility within the local government area. The facility will use the resulting compost to improve agricultural soils and in turn, produce more food. “We’re really excited about this project and hope that the local communities will enthusiastically embrace the service,” Palerang Council’s Director of Infrastructure Planning Bill Ellison said. “We have a great community that readily adopted the recycling programs Council rolled out over the last decade, and we expect that they will welcome this opportunity to reduce their household environmental footprint. On average, about 40-50% of all waste in the red-lidded bin P4 is organic waste, which

REPRESENTATIVES CONTACTS

English anything but plain Mr Cramsie’s letter (‘New set of restrictions’, Mirror 15.1.2014) was subtle in the misinformation it presented, if not short on factual detail. There’s simply not the space, nor probably even reader interest, to deal with all of the misinformed remarks, but let’s start with the reference to the R5 zone as a Rural Residential zone. There is no such thing as a Rural Residential zone in the new LEP template or under the new planning system. The concept of rural residential development is specifically discouraged in the SydneyCanberra Corridor Regional Strategy, because this style of housing has historically had a negative impact on urban development. The R5 (Large Lot Residential) zone has been introduced explicitly to apply to large lots on urban boundaries where “the future use of the land will be for residential purposes, and the primary amenity expectation of the land is to be residential” (PN07-001). This is not about flexibility, it is quite explicitly about ensuring that rural residential style development does not impede urban expansion,

which is the form of growth favoured by the Strategy. The E4 zone is also misrepresented by failing to acknowledge that since the release, in April 2013, of the Departmental White Paper on the New Planning System for NSW, the E4 zone is no longer classed as an Environmental Protection zone—it is a Residential zone, in the same category as the R5 zone. Mr Cramsie’s reference to “scientific proof” in relation to E4 zoning is also inconsistent with departmental guidelines. The documents that Mr Cramsie quotes refer to a preference for use “on the basis of a strategy OR from an environmental study” (PN09-002). In the present case, the zoning is based on the rural settlement strategy that underpins the current Yarrowlumla 1(d) zone—the whole zone, not just areas of specific ecological or aesthetic interest. At this point, it is worth reiterating the fact that there is no other rural residential area in NSW that is underpinned by the objectives of the Yarrowlumla 1(d) zone, and this is what council’s planners sought in defining a replacement zone—to protect our existing lifestyle, and all that it embraces, not to create a generic residential C3 development on the

Contrary to the implication in Mr Cramsie’s letter, there are no isolated R5 zones in Yass Valley Shire—they are all adjacent to more densely developed Residential zones. In contrast, the only other shire with significant areas of the former YLEP 1(d) zone, Queanbeyan, has zoned these areas E3 or E4, and in some places these are immediately adjacent to other residential zones. The difference between these two residential zones, R5 and E4, comes down to the style of residential development that is permitted in each—R5 allows residential Telephone/ Facsimile/ Email T (02) 6238 8111/ 1300 735 025 F (02) 6238 1290 E records@palerang.nsw.gov.au

ORDINARY MEETINGS

Council’s ordinary meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month, except January, and start at 5.00 pm. They are generally held in the Council Chambers at Bungendore (10 Majara Street) but are also held from time to time in Braidwood (Park Lane), and other venues. The business papers for these meetings are available on Council’s website www.palerang.nsw.gov.au on the Friday afternoon prior to the meeting. Extraordinary meetings are also held as required. Members of the public are invited to attend Council’s meetings.

development that “does not hinder the proper and orderly development of urban areas”, and E4 requires that “residential development not have an adverse effect on [local values]”. These are direct quotes from the mandatory objectives of the individual zone definitions. Finally, it’s worth reiterating that under the new Standard Instrument LEPs, environmental controls are no longer applied through land use zones—they are applied through environmental overlay maps, regardless of the underlying zone.

C4 apply to the E4 zone, based on the existence of a particular feature, not the way it is zoned. Of course, future governments may change legislation, but this could just as easily impose restrictions on the R5 zone (prohibiting any land use, for example, that conflicts with the prevailing perception of “residential amenity”) as the E4 zone. In reference to the related Randall/Gough letter (‘Clear definitions needed’, Mirror 15.1.2014), those who have followed the LEP development process will be aware that the absence of a clear fit for the YLEP 1(d) zone was discussed at length early on, and extensive representations were made to the Department. In the event, only the RU4 zone

definition was changed, so that it was clear that it was inappropriate in the present case. Nonetheless, the original intent of the E4 zone, as a Residential zone, is reinforced in more recent documentation (post-April 2013)—it is no longer referred to as an Environmental Protection zone. And in response to the call for plain English legislation, the unfortunate fact is that the English language is anything but plain. It is precisely the attempt to provide a plain English interpretation of the proposed legislation, through Departmental Practice Notes for example, that has led to all this confusion about zoning in the first place.

Confirming change is real Kerry Bos's latest convoluted notion ('A local, not world trend' Mirror 15.1.2014) was that the Russian ship trapped in the ice in Antarctica together with the fact that 2013 was Australia’s hottest year on record, somehow meant that climate change was a con job being advocated by Senator Penny Wong. The ship was trapped after a large breakout of ice was pushed across the sea by strong winds. The escalating rate of ice breakout is a consequence of global warming and an onshore wind, not previously recorded in that location, is a fair indication that the climate is changing. And the senator was not ‘extrapolating a world climate trend from a localised phenomenon’ as Kerry claimed. Instead she actually said that our hottest year confirmed “yet again” that climate change was real.

By 2014, the global trend across a wide range of data shows the sort of record highs and lows, extreme weather events and ocean warming the scientists have been predicting. Quite a coincidence. By now, climate change has become blatantly obvious to all but those who refuse to see it. And the ocean isn’t going to keep soaking up this heat forever. Something’s going to give and we’re already seeing the beginning of it. Science allows us to make predictions about the natural world and the best climate scientists using the best gear we’ve got are predicting that climate change presents a serious problem. The IPCC agrees, the meteorological records agree, the insurance companies agree, Penny Wong agrees but Kerry Bos knows better. Greg Sugden Wilson Street, Braidwood.

Enjoy the remaining time

Developer's answers evasive

I hope you are enjoying the heat, the fires and drought and are not envious of those to our North enjoying cyclone, flood and cold. Good. There is more to come Man has placed a blanket of mainly CO2 in the sky which prevents radiation escaping thus the atmosphere and land warm. This blanket dissipates only slowly. We each continue to add to it on a daily basis and we have no effective way of removing this blanket. Retaining forests would help but the pressures of population and profit denies this happening. The ocean has been good but is probably near absorptive capacity. As CORE suggests solar panels on every house indicating somnolence is at an end might help, as might a combined shout about political and economic paradigms. We could reduce consumption but this would upset our current economic functioning. Unemployment would rise and dole bludging would again become a popular target of politicians and those without experience of unemployment. Funny how society seems to assume all such folk dishonest, without extending the

It has been bought to my attention that a Company by the name of EPYC Pty Ltd has lodged a 'Request for Director Generals Requirements' with the NSW Department of Planning to install a Wind Farm spanning 12,000 hectares from Tarago up Braidwood Road and across the Kings Highway. They have named this project 'Jupiter Wind farm'. As a resident of Braidwood Road, Tarago, I obviously hold a great interest in how this will affect me and our property. I then began wondering as to how many other local residents were aware of the new project and thought it appropriate for me to forward the details onto you and request that you take a moment to consider including it in the Bungendore Mirror. I've attached a map showing the proposed area and a link to the NSW Dept Planning website with the Company's initial paperwork.http:// majorprojects.planning.nsw. gov.au/index.pl?action=view_ job&job_id=6277 The proposal lodged by EPYC to the NSW Department of planning contains statistics in regards to the information they sent out to people in the area, the amount of 'return to senders' and the amount of replies they received. I found it interesting that these statistics seem to differ from that of local opinions. For example; we have lived at Roseview

same privilege to the world of business or politics, Growth of course remains the aim of the economy and the means of absolution for politicians and money, more to the holders of wealth than poor. Growth also means more blankets for the sky. Now if this blanket had value in exchange ie. ownership and profit, we could probably be a bit more successful. But externalities generally offer no profit. Energy efficiency, reducing many features previously unmeasured unnoticed by business or us, may be an exception. Thus one and all say hullo to our changing environment, so inevitably becoming less welcoming of our presence. Those of tidy mind might care to log loss of ecosystems with perhaps a subset called ecosystem loss of features useful to man, This though is sloppy, for we do not know other than in a general way which features we should count; This may harden C3

“Retaining forests would help but the pressures of population and profit denies this happening. The ocean.. is probably near absorptive capacity.”

“..a windfarm spanning 12,000 hectares from Tarago up the Braidwood Road and across the Kings Highway. They have named this project Jupiter Windfarm.” C2 up quite rapidly as we destroy our world finding water, food, breathable air, nearing zero happy holiday spots and so much more no longer there. The UN, forget its name, already logs many deaths as climate change caused. Presumably the membership of any gene pool (race) is random thus preventing the word genocide being used, but perhaps just a number of climate change related deaths serves for future action. Illegal is the watch word for any and all, soon to be ours passing on our disrupted way, having, now, no consequence to the fray

The UN has flagged discussion of responsibility and the legal machinery necessary should blame need to be ascribed. Such of course is extremely unlikely the main perpetrators being well settled in the power structures of the West, though China and India have voices increasing in significance, though of similar message. Enjoy your remaining time, years and years, yes but years of increasing unhappiness for most Feel no guilt for assuredly it is, but nature.. well so it is said. Douglas Jones Macs Reef Road, Bywong

Road Tarago for 7 years, we were the first house in our estate consisting of 12 blocks, yet only two properties in our street received information packs, speaking with residents of Duckfield Road, similar has occurred, one or two people in their street have received information, this seems to have occurred all over the Tarago to Kings Highway area, which leads people to question the authenticity of their 'mail drop box' as everyone I have spoken to who didn't receive information manages to receive all other forms of mail I.e rates notices. People I have spoken to who have been in contact with EPYC have all had similar experiences when liaising with the company, that is: our questions are not answered directly, instead we are given broad information on Wind Farms in general. As the Wind Farm Company; EPYC has failed to adequately inform residents of their intentions, It would be greatly appreciated if you are able to assist local residents to become familiar with what is happening in their area by placing this information in the Bungendore Mirror.

Xmas Group Exhibition at STUR

Brett Martin’s sculpture ‘Evolution’ in the STUR Gallery exhibition

By Robin Wallace-Crabbe If you are uninterested in art, or even too interested, drop into Braidwood’s STUR Gallery because it will be good for you might even teach you something. Big city artists, often driven by the illusion of success, tend to confine themselves to the shadow of a decade’s big style or cling to the memory of some earlier fad. Small townersescapees from the big smokespread their wings and fly as they wish. The great German Tanztheater figure, Pina Bausch advised, ‘you just have to go crazier.’ When tracking works inside STUR observer’s eyes light upon the collage of a teddy bear on its back worshiping or being worshipped by a light globe. Look left and there are three mistily romantic river paintings, look right and.. is that photo a

black dog flaking off a wall? Keep on shuffling, slowly, contemplatively, then do the 27 artists journey again. It’s great, but don’t bump into that huge hand made of riveted cans standing over there. Watch out for some lovely ceramics resting of horizontal surfaces as well as that wee human figure atop a turned piece of wood. Oops, there’s a length of milled wood impossibly bending a piece of heavy steel. That can get you thinking. There are typographically elegant words displayed as well: “The ink stained wolf is perpetually cautious of the plastic bags that float in its midst.” Altogether there are 51 works by 27 makers plus endless imaginative possibilities. You could spend a couple of hours there seeing, recreating, becoming pleasantly crazier, at least and at last.

Pilbara through pinhole camera By Barbie Robinson ‘A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens and with a single small aperture – effectively a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. The human eye in bright light acts similarly, as do cameras using small apertures.’ (Wikipedia) In July 2013 Braidwood based photographer and master printer, Stephen Best, travelled with a small group of photographers to the Karijini National Park in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. The group camped in the park and nearby, with the intention of seeing the sights and photographing the park and its famous gorges.

The park is well documented in colourful picture books but Best decided instead to shoot with a pinhole camera in black and white. There was no attempt to document the park’s main attractions. He merely made images of landscapes and details of landscapes that took his fancy. The result is an exquisite collection of 12 images, startling in their subtlety and beauty. They show as a collection in the Huw Davies Gallery until 2 February. Best has generously offered to donate the proceeds of all sales from this exhibition to PhotoAccess, PhotoAccess is in the Manuka Arts Centre and opens Tuesday to Friday 10am to 4pm and weekends 12 noon to 4pm. Best will be in the gallery on Sunday 19 January to speak to visitors ‘Karljini 8,’ a pinhole camera image by Stephen Best about his work.

By Scott Preston A fantastic day was had by everyone when the Bungendore Royals played Captains Flat at the 'Flat last Sunday. The oval and the new pitch are a credit to everyone who was involved in its resurrection and the hospitality was great. We look forward to the return match in March. Captains Flat batted first, and with Rick and Justin getting some early wickets, it was up to Mick and Platty to bat conservatively and steady the ship for the Flat. All of the Royals bowlers bowled well. Rick got 2/7, Butters dropped more balls than he caught as keeper, and Justin and Jerry could not drop a catch; they were

like panthers in the field! Platty got 44 runs for Captains Flat, Mick 32 and Davey retired on 50. After lunch we had to chase 175. It was a big total to match and the Bungendore Royals were very lucky that Chris retired on 53. He broke a bat in the process and showed us all how classy he really is. Paul got 40, Tristan got 27, but Dancing Dave was the man of the moment. He hit the winning run in the last over. It was nail biting cricket and it could of gone either way. We had a first win of the season, remain undefeated in the boat race 9this year), and all survived another road trip. Life is good today!

WELCOME TO THE MUSTER

This year marks the 29th year of the Bungendore Country Music Festival, which was first held in 1986 as a joint venture between the Bungendore Lions Club and Bungendore Rodeo sub-committee, and staged at the Rodeo Ground. In the early 1990s the Bungendore Lions Club folded, so a Muster committee was formed to run the event as a community fundraiser and, over the last 29 years, over $500.000 has been raised for the benefit of many local community organisations. in addition Bungendore's businesses gain from the large contingent of visitors from all states of Australia. 1998 marked a milestone in the Muster’s history, with the introduction of the Australian Bush Ballad Awards, and this year over 180 nominations from leading balladeers from all states of Australia proves the popularity of the awards. Australian Bush Balladeers Association Inc President Peter Coad said the Bungendore Country Music Muster is a a music festival that exudes a 'down to earth' friendly atmosphere. "It's one of the festivals I truly enjoy attending because of its unique 'All Australian Music Content'. "For people like myself who are very supportive of the bush ballad artist it is pleasing to see the festival continues to pride itself on showcasing an excellent lineup of bush ballad artists every year. I am sure this factor has been a major contributor to the festivals ongoing success and crowd support." The 2014 Bungendore Country Muster will again present a great line up of talent with renowned artists drawn from many Australian States. It will be a great weekend’s entertainment with top balladeers and backing from the renowned Charley Boyter, and Peter Coad and the Coad Sisters, bands The Muster committee urges the local Community to turn out and support the Festival, that supports the community.

PROGRAM OF EVENTS

Den’s music is part country pub rock, part poetic troubadour. He is a singer, songwriter, story teller, guitar, banjo and harp player, stompbox stomper, front bar larrikin. His gigs are bold and upbeat, yet maintain an intimacy. GLENY RAE VIRUS AND HER PLAYBOYS

PETER COAD

Chris Webbe’s Sweaty Palms has been rocking hard around Australia, since 1980, playing old-school rock, blues and country. The talented group that now includes his son Noah, who has stepped into his dad’s shoes as a talented musician.

Gleny Rae Virus and her Playboys admit to peddling ‘hillbilly swing,’ but also flirt with bluegrass, calypso, rockabilly and occasional jazz. Their gumbo/wombat stew of influences reflects Gleny’s off-stage cross-cultural embrace. Formed in 2006, Chucks CHRIS WEBBE AND THE SWEATY PALMS Wagon have released a bootleg EP in 2006, followed by their debut album in 2007, a debut video single ‘Black Road’ in 2008, as well as ‘Live in Austin Texas’ and their current album ‘Lipstick and Sin’.

CHUCKS WAGON

Brewn’ have been influenced by many classic musical acts such as Johnny Cash, CCR, Brad Paisley, Cold Chisel and AC/DC, but heir eclectic musical interests have created a unique style (quirky Australiana BBQ rock)

BREWN

Poddy Dodgers’ Garry Jones wrote his first song at fourteen and since then has accumulated a vast repertoire of original songs. He is supported by his two brothers on guitar, bass, drums and vocals

Growing up in an isolated PODDY DODGERS area gave Peter the inspiration to write about Australia and its characters. Over the years he has perfomed with his brothers, Mal, Phillip and Trevor, and more recently with his sisters Virginia and Lynette

Jessica became the first DEN HANRAHAN winner of the Michael Cowdroy Memorial Award for songwriting (TIARA Awards) at the 2005 Tamworth Country Music Festival for her song ‘No Longer Mine.’ She was also a Toyota Star Maker Finalist 2005.
