Boot Scootin’ for Cancer Research

The Nambung Country Music Muster on 26-29 October 2017 was a celebration of country music bringing together 1,000 country music fans. The event raised money for several charities including an incredible $3,000 for the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) (CLCRF).

The four-day event saw fans enjoy country music concerts around the historic Nambung Shearing Shed, 200 kilometres north of Perth. Stars of the show included Tom Maxwell, Laura Downing, Evan Platschinda, Terry Bennetts and Ginger Cox of the Band of Mates.

Boot scooting and old-time dancing were hugely popular along with the local CWA cooking up a storm.

The Bush Poet’s Breakfast saw performances by Bill Gordon, Stinger and other talented poets to the aromas of freshly cooked bacon and eggs. The Sunday finale brought all the stars together to sing Waltzing Matilda, We Are Proud, and a stirring rendition of Slim Dusty’s Lights on the Hill.

Next year’s muster promises to be just as successful on 25-28 October 2018.

The CLCRF thank the Nambung Country Music Muster for generously donating $3,000. Your kind donation will go towards vital children’s cancer research.
