It is no secret that the Blue Mountains is a melting pot of incredible musical talent. Katoomba Live and Local was an opportunity to see so much of the diverse genre of music on display in one afternoon.
There was such vibrancy and entertainment. The opening event included the voice of young Allegra Dunning singing her own composition, ‘Willow’.
She took my breath away. This was followed by Vocalocity, a fabulous singing crew coached by director Amelia Nell.
As I wandered around the different cafes, galleries and performance spaces in the heart of Katoomba, I was reminded of how lucky I am to live there.
This comment on Facebook summed up the day perfectly:
It was the best atmosphere I can remember in the heart of Katoomba: people walking up and down the street smiling, laughing, meeting friends, sampling and listening intently to a huge variety of music.
This event was made possible by the collaborative efforts of the Blue Mountains City Council, Create NSW, the New South Wales Live Music Office and local music promoter extraordinaire Meg Benson from Music Hunter and her team.
