The Boorowa Balladeers will once again entertain their loyal followers on Australia Day, with the usual programme of poems and yarns, all with a decidedly Australian flavour.

It is expected that the high standard set by previous programmes will be sustained, and perhaps exceeded.

The Recreation Club, a favourite venue for the Balladeers for many years, will have arrangements in place to ensure the complete protection of patrons in this demanding pandemic climate.

Local and visiting Balladeers will entertain, and there is usually a newcomer or two to add an additional voice or two to the proceedings.

Of special interest are any original compositions, which often surface during the afternoon.

While all previous performers have been invited to appear again, there is always plenty of space available for newcomers, all of whom will be most welcome.

The Balladeers programme will begin at 4pm on Australia Day, Tuesday, January 26, and admission is by donation, in order to defray expenses.

All will look forward to another afternoon of humour and pathos, as the Balladeers go through their paces with their usual verve and creativity.
