2017 is turning into a cracker of a year for Champion Bush Poet Robyn Sykes.
The Binalong Bard uses her energetic mix of traditional and original verse to breathe life into poetic characters and stories.
The Boyup Brook Country Music Festival was the highlight for February: what great fun it was. Fabulous poetry!
March’s highlight is the Poets Breakfast at the 154th Yass Show, March 26, 2017. 8.30-10.30am. All ages and stages welcome! http://robynsykes.com/yass-show-poetry-competition/
Plus of course our regular Brush with Poetry at the Black Swan Gallery and Wine Bar in Binalong. http://www.binalongartsgroup.org.au/a-brush-with-poetry/
April’s highlight will be the Man From Snowy River Bush Festival, where Robyn will judge and perform. http://www.bushfestival.com.au/poetry.htm

A 2016 highlight was the ABPA NSW Bush Poetry Championships in Robyn’s home town of Binalong (pop 250) on September 9-11. http://robynsykes.com/binalong-bush-poetry-prize/
Robyn continues to coordinate Binalong Arts Group Inc’s regular Brush with Poetry events in the beautiful and historic Black Swan Gallery and Wine Bar. Last Sunday of every odd month, except January (ie March, May, July, September and November). 1.30 for 2pm. All welcome!
The busy poet is also a keen supporter of Wombat Pub Poets, held on the last Sunday of every even month, except December. 7pm.
The Binalong Bard continues to perform, organise events and judge competitions. She loves to enthrall audiences with her enthusiastic brand of poetry. Perhaps you would like Robyn to add her special touch to your event?
What do people say about Robyn?
Robyn absolutely astonished the audience with her exuberance, immense energy and pure mastery of the spoken word. For the many newcomers who attended last night,
Robyn’s performance was an absolute revelation as to just how entertaining and enjoyable bush poetry can be.
