THE FIRST ever Gundaroo Music Festival kicks off this Saturday, October 12.The festival is the brainchild of local musician Scott Windsor who has recently been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. He and his wife Sue have lived in the Canberra and Gundaroo area for over 15 years. Gundaroo is home for them and their two young girls Jess (11) and Emma (6).
The idea of this day of entertainment, music and family activities is to raise awareness and funding for research into Motor Neurone Disease.
It’s to be a celebration of music, bringing together talents like Alice Plumb, the Corbys and the Dorothy-Jane Band, for 12 hours of non-stop entertainment, alongside local food and children’s activities.
Alongside the music line up, ticket holders can expect to enjoy an evening of fireworks with two scheduled shows after sunset, wine tasting and local foods, local arts and handicrafts, a kids’ zone with jumping castle, a petting zoo and facepainting, mechanical bull rides and a car club display.
