Mullum Music Festival’s patron, The Cat Empire’s Harry James Angus had a two day love-in last week putting down the groundwork for the November Music festival.

Harry spent time jamming with BUDZ outside the IGA, who the next day turned up for the street parade rehearsal, alongside a few random horn players and percussionists. He learnt some tunes with Dustyesky, the Russian Men’s choir and mentored young musicians at Cape Byron Steiner.

And he spread the vision of his programming at the Village Vanguard (Mullum Ex Services). ‘This year its going to be about dancing – lots of party bands!’

See more of what Harry had to say about the festival in Sharon Shostak’s video.
