Troy Dwyer 2 1  Troy Dwyer

 TROY DWYER has over 35 years of performance under his belt & has written and recorded his own brand of Aussie Blues along the way. It's plain to see he lives the blues.

TROY is sure to please with his classic vocals and simple treatment of the blues on guitars and harmonicas ... Think Howlin Wolf & Muddy Waters ... that's his style.








Our Brackets South event takes place on top beautiful Kincumba Mountain. The community built venue is a mud brick and natural timber building which sits in a bushland reserve, with panoramic views of Brisbane water and magnificent sunsets over the hills beyond. 

This venue is the birthplace of Brackets and Jam on the Central Coast and the community considers it as it's spiritual home. The Mountain itself holds a strong significance for our Aboriginal community and has been a long-standing meeting place for Central Coast people. The rock outcrop situated in front of the kiosk forms a natural pool which is said to have once been a sacred birthing place for women. The Mountain now gives birth to many new beginnings as the hub of creative community arts in the southern Central Coast region.
