Church Street will come alive with the sounds of music next month, as part of a new Live and Local street event.
Cafes, restaurants, pubs and outlets will be transformed into temporary live music spaces for the event, giving people the chance to discover Mudgee’s local music scene.
Set to take place from 4pm to 8pm on Saturday 17 March, the event will conclude the 2018 Food and Drink Trail. Visitors will get the opportunity to see Church Street like they’ve never seen it before, with an abundance of local musicians, an art and craft market and a ‘youth stage’ for emerging artists.
‘Live and Local’ is a new concept funded through Create NSW’s Live and Local grant funding program. A number of councils throughout the state are getting on board with the program and sharing in a $150,000 funding pool for 2017/18, including Orange, Newcastle, Tweed, Wagga Wagga, Kempsey, Armidale and Tenterfield.
The program aims to promote live music in local communities by bringing together venues, local businesses, musicians and the public. It will help create employment and cultural development, and it might even help uncover the next big thing in music.
