A gathering of concertina enthusiasts at The Goulburn Club to coincide with World Concertina Day Monday, 6th February (Wheatstone’s birthday). The Goulburn Club was formerly a gentlemen’s club for the local squatters attending sheep sales and is now a music venue run by volunteers. There are multiple rooms for programmed events and for informal socialising.
Goulburn is in NSW on the Hume Highway, approx 1 hr from Canberra, 2.5 hrs from Sydney and is on the Great Southern Railway. There is ample accommodation available in Goulburn for all budgets. A range of options for dining are within easy walks from the Club.
This idea follows on from the excellent weekend held at Yackandandah in 2018. Similarly, it is a participatory event with folk coming together to enjoy a program of workshops, sessions, talks and concerts. Note that participants are treated equally with everyone contributing to the costs of running the weekend by ticket purchase. Costs are mainly the venue hire, plus any production costs such as music printing.
