An awesome gathering of over 40 Lithgow Music industry representatives, were given an update about the Lithgow Live and Local program at the Maldhann Ngurr Ngurra Lithgow Transformation Hub.
The program is fully funded by the Australian Federal Government as part of the Black Summer Bushfire Recovery Grant Program. Lithgow City Council is partnering with the office of Live Music and aims to reconnect local musicians with venues. The program has been successfully run in several local government areas.
Following the meeting a sensational live music showcase of local musicians was headed by the legendary Sam Bucca to give a taste of the full range and power of the new sound system at the Union Theatre.
Mayor Maree Statham said “The Lithgow Live and Local program is going to be very beneficial to the local music industry and will result in a marked increase in the number of live performances throughout Lithgow. The flow on benefit to the venues will be appreciated.”
