Campout performances to echo through Boyne Valley

THIS year's Country Music Campout promises an exceptional weekend, kicking off on Friday.

The Boyne Valley is looking forward to hosting a large turnout flocking from across the state to the annual event in Ubobo.

Campfires will light up the sky while performances from Kate Leahy, Adi Burgess and Bill Chambers echo through the usually quiet valley.

The event has been growing in popularity each year, with proceeds going to the Boyne Valley Rural Fire Brigades.

Local musician Jack Viljoen said the weekend was an opportunity for lovers of comedy, poetry, good company and country music to congregate in a three-day event.
