Narrabri Shire Council said it has secured $7815 in funding for the Wee Waa Cotton Capital Country Music Muster under the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery program, an Australian Government bushfire recovery initiative.

The funding will be used to develop a digital media advertisement campaign, to boost patronage to the annual Cotton Capital Country Music Muster event.

Mayor Cathy Redding said she is looking forward to this year’s Music Muster.

“The Muster is quickly becoming a recognised annual event for locals and to people outside of the Shire.

“For these events to be successful they rely on not only the community to support them, but also visitors.

“This funding is a great outcome for this community event, which we certainly hope can go ahead
unhindered in October as planned,” said Cr Redding.

The muster has been operating for the past three years, showcasing Wee Waa and the Narrabri Shire.

NSC said events like the Muster will bring much needed respite to the community after the ongoing drought, bushfires and now a pandemic.

The event is not only a wonderful way to showcase homegrown music talent, but it provides opportunities for the local schools and community organisations to share in the event and raise much need funds with catering and market stalls.
