hil Emmanuel, brother of Tommy, Dean and Carruthers, Geoff Achison and The Souldiggers and a pioneer of Aussie rock instrumentals Kevin Borich are just a few of the renowned names performing over the three day event. The festival has been organised by the Barooga community, Berrigan Shire and the Barooga Sports Club as a major tourism event and will feature all aspects of stringed musical instruments that you can strum especially guitars, electric and acoustic, and slide guitars. “We wanted to hold a music festival that not only fitted in with the established festival calendar around Australia but also that added something extra,” Greg Ferguson from the organising committee said. “We were also happy to hold it in June despite it being in the middle of winter because we knew we could utilise all the great covered areas at the Barooga Sports Club as a venue so rain won't affect us.” Major concerts featuring the legendary performers will be held on Friday and Saturday nights at the Barooga Sports Club while the Barooga Hotel will keep the entertainment going on Saturday afternoon. The Friday Forum will provide an unforgettable 'surprise' element, this year featuring most likely future stars which you won't want to miss. The performers will

line up again on Sunday for the Big Breakfast to finish the weekend. The festival will also have trade shows, with retailers, demonstrations, clinics and workshops so the public is invited to dust off that old Gibson from under the bed or Maton from on top of the wardrobe and bring it down for the experts to value or show you how to play it. There will also be a massive Saturday market at Lions Park and an art show at the Barooga Golf Club over the weekend.
