CSG protest set to music

ROOTS and blues musicians Xavier Rudd and Ash Grunwald will be rocking a concert a few hundred metres from the Doubtful Creek CSG protest site this Saturday morning.

The two performers are lending their support to the CSG protest movement alongside a bevy of local artists, including Haight Ashbury stars Diana Anaid, Nathan Clearly, Andrea Soler, and Lil Fi.

Dubbed "Don's Party: A pop up picnic in the paddock", the concert will kick off at 9am on private land with a clear view of the drill rig, nestled in the rolling hills of Doubtful Creek.

Organiser Amanda Shoebridge said this is the first every occasion of well-known musicicans taking a public stand against CSG at a blockade site.

"This is a rally of support for the troops at the front line... those who have dedicated so much tim, energy and passion for the struggle against CSG on the Northern Rivers," Ms Shoebridge said.

"Friends are invited to bring a rug and a picnic, hats, sunscreen, and their good cheer."

Directions to the site will be made available at CSG Free Northern Rivers.
