Shake that jive, Mullum comes alive

The biggest little town in Australia came alive with sound and colour at the weekend for the seventh annual Mullum Music Festival, a sold out success. Quality music, art, food and street performance spread around over a dozen venues gave the town atmosphere and a shared community experience for both locals and musicians.

    A little bit of New Orleans, a little bit of soul by all means, a little bit of country, all dressed and jazzed up with the screaming of a brassy, sexy saxophone.
    Hear that trumpet blare and the shiny trombone moan and the raunchy singer’s tonsil in such a shrilly tone. Well, it was all on the road, and in the street, and on the stair, in the beat and in the heat of a hearty little town with a big heart that’s beating proud. There was no time for napping for people’s feet were tapping and dancing without astepp’n on a bindi at Mullum Music’s Fest where many were their guests in Mullum, Mullumbimby
