Fremantle Workers Club

Come on down and enjoy the fun!!

08 Mar 2014

Come along to the Fremantle Workers Club in Fremantle on Monday April 28th to see our great friends and fantastic musicians Coolgrass from Melbourne.

The guys are the funniest bluegrass band you will ever see and they are simply fantastic musicians. We have performed this double header before and it is a very effective combination. As we like to say: 'The best straight bluegrass along side the best bent bluegrass'!

This show takes place on the Monday night following the Fairbridge Folk Festival. You can contact the Fremantle Workers Club on 9335 1840 for tickets.

Hope you all had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.

As for BGP's New Years resolution ....... more bluegrass music of course

We start the year with a Bluegrass Cruise of New Zealand in February. The cruise is over 19 days departing Sydney on February 19 with BGP joining in Auckland on February 23 and making the journey through to Hobart on March 3. There are a host of other bluegrass performers including Mike Compton joining the cruise along the way and there's still time to book your spot (see the poster below). The ship arrives in Fremantle on March 9 and we are planning a concert with a few special guests on the Saturday night - watch out for details on that one.

Over Easter BGP are performing at the National Folk Festival in Canberra and later in the year we are perfoming at Dorrigo, Harrietville and a few other locations near you!

To top things off, we have the new CD "Southern Flavor"out now, look out for it at a gig near you or you can get your copy now through Paul (see the Music section of this website).

Just arrived back from Harrietville 2012 and what a great weekend was had by all. Featured guests this year were Audie Blaylock and Redline and they absolutely tore the place apart with brilliant harmonies, hot picking and general hyper energy!

The local line up exceeded all expectations with new bands all over the place. The future of bluegrass is alive and well in Australia.

The big news for Bluegrass Parkway is that we have finally released our new CD "Southern Flavor" and had a mini release at Harrietville. If you are in Western Australian and didn't have a chance to go to Harrietville (bad luck) stay tuned as we are planning a CD launch early in the new year.

Don't forget the Bluegrass Cruise in February. 19 days of solid bluegrass music featuring Mike Compton and a host of Australia's best bluegrass musicians. Have a look here for details http://travelrite.com.au/bluegrass_cruise.shtml

The band has just returned from a mini tour of Victoria with a concert spot at Yinnar and a terrific weekend at the Great Alpine Pick up at Harrietville.

Yinnar was an absolute blast and has become a firm favourite location to perform. The hospitality of the Strezlecki Stringbusters is legendary and this trip proved as epic as our last. Special thanks to Dana and Dan for sharing their home with us and to Dan and friends for providing after show entertainment. We are aleady looking forward to our next visit.

The Great Alpine Pick was once again a fantastic weekend of jamming and picking with some terrific performances by the Pipi Pickers, Coolgrass, Uncle Bill and others. The festival has grown from last year and looks set to become another must go to on the bluegrass calendar. We particularly enjoyed hosting the Gospel Concert at the church on Sunday morning. Those present will understand why this banjo picker will pay more attention in future...oops :-)

Many thanks to Jim and Angus for proving us with such a good weekend.

Next Bluegrass Parkway gig is at the Kulcha Club in Fremnantle on May 12. See you there.

March News

Things are starting to get busy again for the band with gigs planned for Yinnar, Harrietville, Fremantle and Mundaring as well as the Redlands Bluegrass Convention in July. On top of that, the band is also planning to record at least one new CD and put on a concert to celebrate our 25th year of performing.

Wayne is settling in as our new guitarist although Guy will still be perfoming with the band when Wayne is preoccupied with his 'real' job. Speaking of Wayne, he and the lovely Lucia will be tying the knot this Saturday - well done Wayne - punching above your weight again!!

Stay tuned for more gigs and gossip.
