Canberra Country Music Festival changes name

The Canberra Country Music Festival changed its name to Canberra Country Blues & Roots Festival.

The promoters say it better reflects the diversity of the November 15 to 17 event. “We have always had the full diversity of country with bluegrass, blues, gospel, roots, swing, traditional, contemporary, mountain, country rock, honky tonk, rockabilly and yes, even western - but we could not get that message across - even to local media and more importantly the ACT government who have not financially assisted since we started. Funny how the name change has also widened perceptions and the doors are now opening!”
