A great line up of Australian entertainment is set to rock out in Gympie on Saturday 11 May, as part of the Rise and Shine Queensland tour.

Premier Campbell Newman said the Government’s partnership with the Queensland Music Festival would deliver musical tours to regions hit by devastating weather earlier this year.

“I invite the local community to come together to enjoy a free afternoon of family activities, a barbecue and live music,” Mr Newman said.

“Country singer Gina Jeffreys, blues and roots singer Ash Grunwald, alt-country duo Texas Tea and 16 year old rising star Sahara Beck will take to the stage for an afternoon of great Aussie entertainment.  

“It will be the perfect opportunity to take a break, reflect on the year and celebrate the Gympie community spirit."

Rise and Shine Queensland, which tours to ten communities across the state, is being programmed by Queensland Music Festival, led by Artistic Director James Morrison.

"I'm thrilled we have the chance to send so many wonderful performers to join these communities in their celebrations,” Mr Morrison said.

Rise and Shine Queensland will be held from 1pm, Saturday 11 May, at Nelson Reserve.
