The Cartridge Family join Small Town Folk

By Daniel Hughes

The Small Town Folk festival will return to the district again this year, with The Cartridge Family bringing you two excellent shows in Caldwell and Conargo.

The band features talented artists Sarah ‘Shirley’ Carroll, sister Suzannah ‘Laurie’ Espie, wayward son Rusty Rich and second cousin Greg Field.

Both shows will feature all the best music from The Carter Family and The Delmore Brothers, as well as catchy originals from 'Redneck Man' and the modern song 'There Ain't No Facebook In Heaven.'

Tickets are only $30 for adults, with under 18s attending for free.

"We're really excited to see them perform, they're a good country and western with a fun twist," South West Music administration manager Anne Atley said.

"Tickets are selling fast with a lot of interest for both performances."

The first performance at the Cladwell Hall Will be Saturday, September 14. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

A 2pm show at the Conargo Recreation reserve the following day will be a perfect outing for the family..

Guests are encouraged to bring their own foods and drinks to both.

A complimentary bus service from Deniliquin will be available for both concerts. Book your seat at the time of booking your tickets.

The Cartridge Family members will also host a music workshop on the Sunday morning, from 10am. It will be held at South West Music, at 241-245 Cressy St, Deniliquin.

Entry to the workshop is available for students of any age. South West Music can attend for free, and it's $30 for other students.
