Bribie Island, known for its pristine beaches and vibrant local community, is about to experience a melodic treat that combines the best of country tunes with a love for local businesses. On the horizon is a unique collaboration between Bribie Island’s beloved Avondale Meats and the country music sensation, Virjilla Joyce!
From Eden to Nashville to Bribie Island
Virjilla’s journey from the seaside country town of Eden to the renowned stages of Nashville is nothing short of inspiring. With karaoke sessions in Eden, influenced by her Filipino karaoke queen mum, to making waves at events like the CMA County Musical Festival, her story is a testament to passion and perseverance.
Yet, what makes Virjilla stand out isn’t just her deep-rooted love for music. It’s her ability to weave personal narratives into her melodies, connecting with audiences on an emotional level. Her song “Lady In Red,” for instance, is a heartfelt tribute to her Auntie Jen, and it resonates with many who’ve experienced loss and yearning.
An Unmissable Event
This Saturday, 28 October, the Banksia Beach Village Markets are set to come alive with the sweet sounds of Virjilla’s guitar and voice. Stationed right in front of Avondale Meats, from 10am-12pm, Virjilla will be sharing her talent, infusing the market air with a mixture of country-inspired setlists and original music.
But that’s not all! Visitors can also indulge in local delights, from grabbing a hearty bite from our local food shops to sipping on freshly brewed coffee. It’s a call to not just enjoy the music but also to support the local businesses that make Bribie Island a tight-knit community.
So, mark your calendars, bring along your friends and family, and immerse yourself in a morning of melodies, mouthwatering bites, and the unmatched charm of Bribie Island. Let’s make it a day to remember!
