The Dustyesky Russian Male Choir brought the house down at last night’s opening of the 2014 Mullum Music Festival with their a capella rendition of the Song of the Volga Boatmen.

It was a night of highlights, including the juggling Freddie Mercury-esque Mario Queen of the Circus, Melbourne’s retro jazzmeisters The Harry James Angus Band, the remarkable blues tunes of Mojo Juju and the Francophone stylings of Baby et Lulu.

Now in its seventh year, the festival proper starts today and runs until Sunday night. A new feature is the Village Vanguard, a nightly jazz club in the building formerly known as the Mullum Ex-Services Club.
