The Blackwood Academy of Bluegrass and Old Time Music holds an event on a Sunday on most months at The Blackwood Uniting Church between 1pm - 6pm.  Blackwood Academy & Revue Inc.  is a not for profit incorporated community association. It includes members of the Victorian Branch of The Bluegrass and Traditional Country Music Society of Australia (BTCMSA), who previously ran 'Pickin' at the Piggery' in Footscray, and local music enthusiasts. Each Sunday event starts with a Shapenote singing session followed by workshops and/or sessions, finishing off with a live acoustic concert featuring special guests each month.
Everyone is welcome to attend our events, whether you are a player or a music lover or both; whether you wish to take part in sessions and workshops (when we have them) or just to come along any month and hear some wonderful music as an audience member....
In November 2015, we are excited to present the second Blackwood Music Festival, building on the success of the pilot event last year. Information will soon be posted about this year's festival.
