Shearwater spring fair and buskers competition

Shearwater Steiner School at Mullumbimby will be looking for the next big thing on the busking circuit at this weekend's inaugural Spring Fair Busking Competition.

The competition is part of the school's annual Spring Fair, 'Threads of Life', which takes place on Saturday from 10am-3pm at Shearwater, 349 Left Bank Rd, Mullumbimby.

Television audiences are already in love with Shearwater alumni Gabe and Cecilia Brandolini who wowed the judges of The Voice and have become the shire's best known buskers.

Gabriel and Cecilia will also be dropping in to the fair for a guest performance, to inspire the next generation of buskers.

Shearwater invites the whole community to celebrate the advent of spring and the beginning of a new year at the school's beautiful rural campus with musical entertainment, delicious food stalls and crafts and activities for the whole family, including candle-making, silk ribbon painting, spring garland weaving and much more.

The busking competition, which is open to high school students from across the region, will take place from 1-3pm.

Entry to the fair and the busking competition is free and is open to musical acts only. Instruments must be acoustic and songs should be a maximum of five minutes in length.

Rules and registration details can be found at http://www.shearwater.nsw.edu.au or by calling the school office on 6684 3223.
