In November, locals attending the Boolarra Club Hotel were treated to some excellent musical entertainment from local Celtic group Th e Nigellas. Musicians from Boolarra, Mirboo North and Yinnar South form the group.
Come along and support local musicians – The Nigellas performing at the Boolarra Pug again on Friday – 9th December 2011.
The group play authentic and lively renditions of old, but still popular, Celtic and folk music – jigs & reels, laments and rollicking songs of roving an
d rebellion from years past.
An eclectic range of instruments includes the fiddle, tin whistle, mandolin, banjo, guitar and bodhran (an Irish frame drum). The blend of acoustic instruments, which, when combined with the mellow tones from Nigella – the double bass, produce a rich, smooth melody that is very easy listening.
