The Live Music at the Clubhouse will feature live music from a variety of artists, including Bonny Rai, Joey Wythes, Ben Nash (78 Saab) as well as locally born musician Sophie Payten, who performs as Gordi.
Also taking to the stage will be some talented students from the region who will be attending a workshop with Gordi prior to the event.
The workshop will be on in the morning of the concert and will be open to students from around the region subject to numbers. They can apply at email@example.com
The fundraising concert is being held at 'The Clubhouse' - the Canowindra Pythons Rugby Union Club on Saturday, April 4.
Founder of the Country Education Foundation Canowindra, Peter Stacey said the event will be an easy and relaxed catered for event where you can enjoy Canowindra's amazing musical talent whilst supporting local youth.
"I think everyone enjoys live music and we are fortunate enough to have some very talented musicians from our area who are willing to give of their time to support our local CEF."
"The musicians didn't hesitate to offer their services to help our local youth achieve their goals," Mr Stacey said.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $5 for High School Students (or under 18) and primary school children and younger enter free. Family ticket (two adults and two or more high school students) $50.
Tickets are available through eventbrite.com.au. Tickets can also be purchased from Brodie at Café Delice or Donna at Frock On.
Mr Stacey said the Foundation was established to provide much needed financial assistance and support to local youth to help them achieve their post high school education, training and vocation aspirations.
"We recognise that the cost of rural students pursuing their post high school goals is often much greater than those of their metropolitan counterparts and that sometimes these costs can be prohibitive."
The financial support CEF provides ranges from $500 to $5,000 per student, per year and helps buy textbooks and laptops for uni students, purchase tools and equipment for apprentices and assists rural and regional youth to relocate to take up career opportunities.
