Mike W Posted August 22, 2007 Share Posted August 22, 2007 The National Windjam was held for the first time in Evandale, Tasmania last year. It attracted about 20 box players from mainland Australia and an equal number of players from Tassie. Most of the Tasmanians players thought that they were the last of their breed as they were all good solid dance players but sadly the dancing no longer happens. What we did find was that there were some very talented musicians all with a sense of humor. The winner of the National Button Box Championship had not played in public for about 20 years. This festival is open to all boxes, accordions, concertinas, gum leaves and saws and occurs every second year. Being the odd year this year, we are having a one day event called the nOtional Windjam Festival. I have just completed a website on the windjam.
