“TASTE” CALLS LOCAL BUSKERS

Naracoorte will be in a party mood for the Taste the Limestone Coast Festival weekend of 8th – 10th February, with golf, art, the races, farmers market, an outdoor movie and the food, wine and music festival day itself!

To help set the mood, the Taste Committee is inviting local entertainers to be buskers on the Saturday morning of the festival.  Not only could Smith and Ormerod Streets come alive with music, but the Naracoorte Historic Vehicle Club monthly market at the Sheep’s Back Museum has invited buskers to entertain the market crowd as well.

Market organizer Daphne Burford said "A recent visit to the market by singer Don Wishart was enjoyed by market goers," and she was sure that buskers would be enjoyed as well.

The Kincraig Plaza will also welcome buskers, but they should register their interest with Gabby at Naracoorte First National a couple of days before to ensure that space is available.

Taste Chairman Derek Blackwell believes that entertainment throughout the town is certainly popular at festivals and commented
“Street buskers certainly helped create a buzz in the town last year and set the scene for a relaxed and enjoyable festival, and many young people made some handy pocket money as well.
We invite entertainers to join in to make this a weekend for all - locals, tourists and visitors alike.  There is a wealth of talent in our town and the wider Limestone Coast district, so let’s show what we can do!”

Buskers who wish to perform in the streets must register with the Naracoorte Lucindale Council and younger buskers must have parental permission and appropriate supervision while performing.
