Boyup Brook is the Country Music Capitol of Western Australia, and the annual Country Music Festival and WA Country Music Awards brings visitors not only from around WA and the rest of Australia, but also from around the world. This was my first time attending the Festival and it was a bit of a shock to have so many people in our sleepy little town!
And yes, those last two photos are of a kilt-wearing punk playing the bagpipes at the Boyup Brook Country Music Festival! He was very good and I am still kicking myself for not buying his cd!
The 2011 Boyup Brook Country Music Festival will be held on 17th – 20th February 2011 and will feature Troy Cassar-Daley, Felicity Urquhart, Peter Denahy s well as the Bush Poet’s Breakfast, Country Music Awards, stalls and markets, free street party and the Ute and Truck Muster.
