Welcome to Wauchope Arts

This site provides an information service to our members and anyone who is interested in attending or getting involved in the events and activities offered by the Wauchope Community Arts Council. We are a group of passionate volunteers who value the role of the arts in community building and we aim to provide diverse cultural experiences for Wauchope and beyond.

The Wauchope Community Arts Hall is just that - community. It is one of the most intimate venues in the Hastings that attracts acts of extraordinary quality and it feels as if they are playing in your lounge room with a bunch of your best friends.

- with special guest Tegan Wiseman/aka Vena Klymo
Canadian troubadour Irish Mythen has made a huge impression on Australian audiences, bringing the house down at festivals such as Mullumbimbi, Small Halls, Illawarra, Woodford and Bluesfest in Byron Bay (where organisers were so struck by her that they named one of the resident koala after her).
She’s opened for Melissa Etheridge at sold out shows around the country and is steadily getting noticed for her huge voice, comic timing, emotive songwriting, and a virtuosic storytelling style.
We are so proud she will stop in at Wauchope on her East-coast tour, which sees her travelling from Cairns to Melbourne, and opening for Irish will be former local songstress Tegan Wiseman, aka Vena Klymo.

- American folk and bluegrass duo
One year after the release of 'Weight of the World'**, American folk and bluegrass duo '10 String Symphony' is touring Australia and will stop at Wauchope Arts following performances at the Patchewollock, Dorrigo and Froggy Mountain festivals.
5-string fiddle players Rachel Baiman and Christian Sedelmyer formed 10 String Symphony in 2012, and won many Australian fans at Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass and JamGrass Festivals that year.
Rachel, a former Illinois state fiddle champion, has appeared with Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlile, and Christian has appeared alongside Emmylou Harris, Buddy Miller and Alison Brown.
Though they play acoustic music, their rock influence is apparent in their arrangements as they move listeners through an emotional journey.
Despite the use of clawhammer banjo and percussion, their mission statement remains clear - two voices; two fiddles; epic music.

** 'Weight of the World hit #3 on the Billboard Bluegrass charts.

*ONLINE TICKET SALES - www.trybooking.com
Wauchope Arts is trialling a system where a portion of some event tickets is available for purchase online - this is the preferred option for some performers, and it's a convenient way for audience members to purchase tickets.
