Shelley's Murder Boys

The stage has been set for the July edition of Bluegrass @ Yulli’s and you’re all invited to come and see some amazing music.

The regular jam and performance night has announced the 19th July as its next date and boy do they have goodies in store.

As always Bluegrass @ Yulli’s kicks off with an all-in am where you’re encouraged to bring your banjo, guitar, bass, mandolin, fiddle or whatever you can get your hands on and join in on the action.

Then at 8pm local trio (and Bluegrass @ Yulli’s regulars) Shelley’s Murder Boys take to the stage to keep you entertained with their own brand of old time and bluegrass music. They’ll also be putting the finishing on their upcoming EP Troubled Thoughts Keep Her Fed (due the 1st August) so expect some sweet sweet music.

Bluegrass @ Yulli’s takes place upstairs at Yulli’s restaurant in Sydney and is completely free. Check out the Facebook event for more details.

Bluegrass @ Yulli’s for March 2017

Whoa Mule

The year keeps rolling along and as such next week is the March edition of Sydney’s favourite bluegrass jam and concert night Bluegrass @ Yulli’s.

If you haven’t been down to Bluegrass @ Yulli’s before and are curious you’re in for a treat. The first two hours from 6pm is an all-in jam where you’re encouraged to bring your banjo, guitar, bass, mandolin, fiddle or whatever you can get your hands on and join in on the action.

Then from 8pm the feature artist takes the stage for an intimate show. This month Bluegrass @ Yulli’s is blessed with an appearance from bluegrass and old time four-piece Whoa Mule, fresh off their recent appearance at the Summer Hill Folk Festival. All four of the ladies in Whoa Mule have been a part of Bluegrass @ Yulli’s both in the jam and as performers over the years so it’s great to see them coming together as this month’s feature artist.

The March edition of Bluegrass @ Yulli’s takes place upstairs at Yulli’s in Surry Hills from 6pm on Wednesday 15th March. The night is 100% free – for more information check out the official Facebook event here.
