Holiday music from Lanyon's past
12-2pm

Musicians will recreate the musical sounds of a living homestead. Hear how the verandah is animated by the kind of music that would have been heard there in the early days of settlement on the Monaro: songs from the Old Country and from the bush representing the workers on the property.
