The Kelly Country Pick is a winter Bluegrass and Old Time Country Music Convention based in the historic town of Beechworth. Beginning in 1999 as an annual get together between a few pickers and families, it now attracts some 300 to 500 musicians and patrons.

The Kelly Country Pick focuses on picking, sharing music, and teaching technical skills, and provides a great opportunity to see some of Australia’s foremost bluegrass and ol’-timey musicians both in concert and in informal sessions.

Instrument workshops over the weekend have included old time fiddle, swing fiddle, cajun fiddle, twin fiddles, bluegrass fiddle, mandolin, double bass, flatpicking guitar, swing guitar, fingerstyle guitar, dobro and ol’ time and bluegrass banjo and autoharp. No matter what your level of musicianship – there is something for everyone. But if you just want to watch and listen, that is fine too.
