Girgarre Junkestra TV Stars
ABC Backroads, the very popular TV show hosted by Heather Ewart, will be broadcasting an episode on Girgarre (date to be announced). The production team were in town during February gathering footage and stories. GIRGARRE JUNKESTRA were recorded playing a 5 minute version of SPIRIT RISING for the cameras under the baton of Maureen Shepherd. We had rehearsed and prepared for this while I was there in January and it is so good that the ensemble are now kicking off the training wheels and continuing their development under their own steam. Congratulations to all in the group who endured what I understand was a pretty gruelling recording session with eight takes from different camera angles, and a huge thank you to the Backroads team for their caring and detailed work on this project.
