The Kelly Country Pick focuses on picking, sharing music, and teaching technical skills, and provides a great opportunity to see some of Australia’s foremost bluegrass and ol'-timey musicians both in concert and in informal sessions.

Instrument workshops over the weekend have included old time fiddle, swing fiddle, cajun fiddle, twin fiddles, bluegrass fiddle, mandolin, double bass, flatpicking guitar, swing guitar, fingerstyle guitar, dobro and ol’ time and bluegrass banjo and autoharp.

October

Beechworth Oktoberfest

 13th & 14th October 2018

Get your annual dose of Ohmpah pah pah. Beechworth craft-brewery Bridge Road Brewers is hosting its 14th annual Oktoberfest. Located in the heart of town, this small brewery has a swag of awards to its name, and is ready for this years celebration of beer and music.

The event is based around the original Oktoberfest held in Munich in late September each year. This Beechworth Oktoberfest is probably as close as you will get to the real thing without forking out the dollars to fly to Europe.

The authenticity of this event is bolstered not only by the four piece OhmPah band, traditional outfits and cuisine, but also by the beer brewed especially for the occasion. As is tradition in Munich, they also brew their own Marzen, or Oktoberfest beer, more than two months ahead of the event. This allows for the beer to age or large in tank for a prolonged period, resulting in a smooth malty lager, perfect for such a celebration.

Tickets will sell out as they did last year. Purchase your tickets before booking accommodation.


Bridge Road Brewers, Ford Street, Beechworth, Victoria, 3747
