Troubadour workshop in Nimbin

Medieval troubadours were the Facebook face-time facilitators of their day.

They conveyed messages of love, history and current issues, and this tradition is still alive, according to Nimbin's Ren Waterfall.

With the assistance of Regional Arts NSW, he's just returned from ten months performing around France with the neo-medieval group Les Derniers Trouveres (The Last Troubadours).

A well-known local musician and music teacher, he's offering a workshop and performance titled Music and Life of the Neo-medieval French Troubadour, at Nimbin Hall, this Saturday, July 28.

Prospective bards should bring instruments and/or dancing shoes at 7.30pm.

Entry is by donation.

All proceeds go to the Nimbin School of Arts.
