Any old musical instruments unloved around the house?
Moruya’s favourite busker, musician and songwriter Jeff Aschmann has a musical instrument favour to ask of the Eurobodalla community. Jeff is one of the most diversified talents currently based in the South East Region of Australia. Not only is he a singer and musician but he is also in considerable demand as a puppeteer at festivals. His puppet shows feature native Australian animals and as a qualified teacher he is also able to weave a strong education theme into his popular act. He now works part of the year in remote Eastern Arnham land with the Ngukurr community and teaches music to the kids at the local school. They love music and are passionate to learn more however they don’t have enough instruments. Jeff will be heading back north in 2017 and is hoping to take a load of instruments with him. Anything from ukuleles to clarinets, trombones, maracas and triangles with maybe a xylophone, a few guitars and a tambourine thrown in for good measure. Jeff asks Eurobodalla folk to have a look in the cupboard or in the back shed and if there is an instrument there that might bring joy to an outback school then he will organise the transport of the instrument to make sure it arrives safely. If you do have an old instrument you can contact Jeff on 0457 662 000
