Musician receives touring grant

Springfield musician, James Draper has received an Australian Council for the Arts Contemporary Music Touring Program grant.

Federal Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks, welcomed the Australian Government’s support for regional tours of original work by Australian contemporary musicians through the program.

The grant enabled James to join the Winterbourne’s first national headline tour across NSW, QLD, VIC, WA and SA.

“The Winterbourne’s first national tour is a great opportunity for Mr Draper to showcase his musical talent,” Ms Wicks said.

More than $180,000 has been provided to support tours of new music by contemporary Australian musicians to remote and regional communities through the program.
