Southerland Acoustic Club set to relaunch

Following a recent meeting at the Gymea Tradies it has been decided to restart the Southerland Acoustic Club. The meeting was attended by an enthusiastic group of people who noted that they had enjoyed both the concert nights and the session nights in the past and would like to see them restarted. Eight people volunteered to participate on an organising committee and have undertaken to launch the first evening by July at the latest.

The meeting also discussed the possibility of alliances with the Illawarra and South Sydney Folk Clubs as well as arrangements for sound systems and sharing resources between clubs where convenient.

Updates will be posted on the Club’s Facebook Page. See the link below.
