Tickets came on sale this week for an extravaganza at the Tenterfield Showground on April 3 that will be the highlight of a busy Autumn Festival program running April 2-5.
The Lift the Country Spirit concert -- mounted with funding help from both state and federal governments and Tenterfield Shire Council, in association with the Tenterfield Show Society -- will be the key event
Gates to the Tenterfield Showground will open at 4pm to welcome Shannon Noll, one of Australia's most popular singers.
He will be accompanied by one of the world's best up and coming hippie-country bands from Byron Bay called The Buckleys, comprised of siblings Sarah, Lachlan, and Molly. They've been taking over stages around the world with their brand of music, recently securing a US Top 20 for their song Money as voted by American Song Writer.
Other artists on the bill include renowned country music star Melanie Dyer, local Stanthorpe duo Nine Year Sister and Thalia Matheson, who supports The Buckleys on international and local tours.
Tickets are available online at www.trybooking.com/BNWAT. Adults 18 and over are $20 each and children 17 years and under are free.
Festival organisers say the Easter Long Weekend will be an important weekend to showcase some of the shire's greatest assets and businesses, in what is arguably the best time of the year: Autumn.
