Gina Jeffreys to rock out as part of music tour

GINA Jeffreys headlines a great program of Australian entertainment which will rock out in Gayndah on May 17 as part of the Rise and Shine Queensland tour.

Premier Campbell Newman said the government's partnership with Queensland Music Festival would deliver musical tours to regions hit by devastating weather earlier this year.

"I invite the community of North Burnett to come together to enjoy a free afternoon of family activities, a barbecue and live music," Mr Newman said.

"Country singer Gina Jeffreys, acoustic artist Andrew Morris and alt-country solo Sue Ray and local songstress Rachel Koster will take to the stage for an afternoon of great Aussie entertainment.

"It will be the perfect opportunity to take a break, reflect on the year and celebrate the Gayndah community spirit."

Rise and Shine Queensland, which tours to ten communities across the state, is being programmed by Queensland Music Festival, led by artistic director James Morrison.

"I'm thrilled we have the chance to send so many wonderful performers to join these communities in their celebrations," Mr Morrison said.

Rise and Shine Queensland will be held from 4pm on Friday, May 17 at the Gayndah Showgrounds.
