Australia Day is set to be a big one for Barraba, with some of Australia’s biggest country music stars coming to town to take part in The Recovery Concert – a free drought-relief concert organised by Barraba business group About Barraba Inc. in conjunction with Tamworth Regional Council.
This free event will coincide with the formal Barraba Australia Day Awards celebrations at the Barraba Sports Ground, with the ceremony starting at 5pm.
The concert will follow at 6pm, with performances by:
- Amber Lawrence, who was nominated for three Golden Guitar Awards in 2020 – Female Artist of the Year, Contemporary Country Album of the Year and Toyota Album of the Year
- Barraba’s own Andrew Farriss, who is one of the founding members of INXS, one of Australia’s most successful bands
- Drew McAlister, best known as one half of country music duo McAlister Kemp, who now has three solo albums to add to his successful singer/songwriter career.
There will a bar and local food vendors a great evening for the whole family so bring your picnic blanket or chair and join us for a great evening.
