Newport Bush Orchestra - Very Multicultural Indeed

The NBO is still going strong each Monday night in Newport after almost eight years in the saddle.  Greg O'Leary is as enthusiastic as ever about getting people together to play music - whatever the skill level, the idea is that coming along and playing together is a good thing.  Last night's line up included an Englishman, an Irishman, a Canadian, an American, and a Macedonian - plus a couple of Aussies for good measure.  There were the good old tunes, some new ones and a couple of songs - even Newport's own version of Waltzing Matilda got a run.  If you've been thinking you might come one day, just turn up on a Monday night with instrument and you will find a warm and friendly place to play - just like kids.
