Liverpool Plains Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Doug Hawkins OAM, said that after the drought in live performances in 2020, due to COVID19, it's great to see top Aussie acts like Hurricane Fall and Fanny Lumsden coming to the shire to perform.
"Our Aussie artists also did it tough in 2020 so let's get out and support them and enjoy a great night's entertainment. Live music has always been an important part of Australian culture and supporting these fine acts will encourage others to bring their music to our community," he said.
