Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend – Palm Creek Festival

While half of Townsville Ukuleles were enjoying the lovely “Magnetic Island Home Brewers Festival”, another part of the group were solidly entrenched in their camps at the Palm Creek Festival.
We caught up with the “Whitsunday Ukoholics” who were surprisingly low key (probably after a big night jamming on rum) Well most of them are pirates and sailors! However they have taken to camping and their beautiful retro caravans are pure artforms.
Most of our mob are so diverse in their love of music and dance and the Palm Creek Festival did not disappoint.
Our focus, however was the Ukestra. With a couple of practice hours leading up to the final performance, both audience and players were thrilled in what was achieved. Newcastle Ukestra Mark Jackson and his partner Jane Jelbart whipped us up into a performance, which those of us from Townsville Ukuleles will never forget.

We all look forward to the beginning of winter  and the long weekend. So much to enjoy.
Townsville Ukuleles performed on Magnetic Island for the “Home Brewers Festival”, and many of the crew made a weekend of it.
