'The Basin Music Festival 2020' was due to happen on the last weekend of March and was unfortunately cancelled due to the current social restrictions in place.  However the 'Sachar Amos Guitars songwriting competition' has still proceeded with a winner having been chosen and yet to be announced.

As this event is about community and encouraging creativity from the local songwriters, it has been decided that the official ceremony will take place once restrictions lift and people can enjoy the event together, possibly at one of the 'Concert in the park' series later in the year or so.

This year's prize was a SAG steel string model featuring aged walnut back and sides and Sitka spruce soundboard, African mahogany neck, Ebony fingerboard and rosewood bridge.  Next years prize is still to be decided however you can follow the progress of its build later this year via 'The Basin Music Festival' face book page.

If you'd like to try your hand at songwriting and submit your song for a chance to win a handmade Sachar Amos guitar in 2021, you can contact Ray Smith (organiser of 'The Basin Music Festival')  programming@thebasinmusicfestival.org.au
