Report on Australian Song & Tune Session, Katoomba, September 2015










 





The Bush Music Club & Blue Mountain musicians present 

              Australian Song & Tune Session

 


BMC members met up with Blue Mountains musicians & singers for an enjoyable afternoon of tunes & songs. Hotel Blue is an untouched Art Deco building well worth visiting if you are in the area & the Attic is a great place for a session.
