Saturday October 30 2021 Buttongrass Ball ~ Birds on Beaches

It was sitting room only as we played for the 24th annual Buttongrass Ball at New Town (Hobart) Tasmania, proceeds going to the Tasmanian National Parks Association.

The theme was “Birds on Beaches” in celebration and support of our amazing shorebirds, some of which fly 15,000 km each way to Siberia/Alaska and back every year, but are threatened on our Tasmanian beaches and mud-flats by human, canine and other activity.

Dances were backed by old and new Tasmanian bush/folk dances dedicated to the natural and cultural heritage of Tasmania, and supper kept everybody going!

We do love the Buttongrass Ball.
