SALT FESTIVAL BLOG: SALT in the Cellar

The Cellar Folk Club of Port Lincoln will be bringing a bright and varied range of events to SALT this year, including a free concert at the Wheatsheaf Hotel on April 28 from 8pm, a popular Family Bush Dance at the Anglican Parish Hall on April 22 from 5pm and some members of the club are also playing a role in the remembrance of Tom Black with the local Eyre Writers group.

The club has been established for more than 23 years offering free acoustic (non-amplified) music sessions regularly at Boston House and other events around town.

Well recognised for its Australian flare of music, the club has wide range music styles from country to folk and popular songs, using all sorts of instruments including guitars, ukulele, flutes, harmonicas, tin whistles and various sorts of percussion.

SALT presents the club with the opportunity to engage with the community and showcase members’ skills and music.

“For the dance we are really trying to get younger kids and families to come and enjoy the music and dancing, and so we have kept it at just a gold coin donation,” vice president Ron Higgins said.

“And for the concert we would recommend you book a table for dinner, as last year they booked out for meals.

“The concert will showcase all the fun we have at the Cellar, including a range of talented performers such as the award-winning country singer-songwriter John Lecner, The Lincoln Larricans Celtic Bush Band, The Ukelele Group, and lots of others.”

Anyone interested in booking a table for a meal please phone the Wheatsheaf on 8684 3531.
