Blues and roots at the Sebel Hawkesbury
By Ellen Hill for The Sebel Hawkesbury Resort & Spa
Get into the blues and roots groove in stylish luxury when the only 4.5 star resort in the Hawkesbury-Nepean region hosts two free Sydney Blues and Roots Festival gigs during the weekend of October 23 to 25.
The tone will be set with fireworks by the lake at the front of The Sebel Hawkesbury Resort & Spa at 8.30pm on the Friday, before Dr Don’s Double Dose takes over the Barracks Bar from 8.45pm to 10.30pm.
There will be more lakeside musical action with James Bennett at 2pm, Liza Ohlback at 3pm and Glenn Cardier and The Sideshow from 4.30pm to 6pm on Sunday, October 25.
The popular music festival will be held across nine venues throughout Windsor in the Hawkesbury region at the foothills of the world-famous Blue Mountains.
Now in its seventh year, the Hawkesbury Council-sponsored festival will again feature the best established and emerging local, national and international blues and roots acts, and transcends age, gender and culture barriers with gigs in intimate performance spaces, market stalls, buskers, jam sessions, workshops and youth events.
The Sebel Hawkesbury Resort & Spa general manager David Ross said: “The Sydney Blues and Roots Festival has become a major experience on our community’s social calendar so we are delighted to offer these two music events free to Hawkesbury locals and visitors.’’
He also encouraged festival goers to fully immerse themselves in the event by staying at least one night and exploring activities and locations around the Hawkesbury area.
Just an easy 45 minutes’ drive from Sydney CBD and 60 minutes from Sydney airport, the Sebel Hawkesbury Resort & Spa is luxury travelling at its best.
As well as 8ha of manicured grounds through which to wander, an 18-hole champion golfing range next door and a 9-hole one on-site, several dining options, a full gym and balloon rides, the Sebel Hawkesbury is home to the largest day spa in Western Sydney.
