Lithgow City Council, in collaboration with the National Bushfire Recovery Agency is presenting a season of Live'n'Local community live music events starting in early July.
While most Live'n'Local events will be live-streamed, the first event will be pre-recorded.
The first event will take place on Friday, July 3 from the historic Collits Inn, and then streamed to a world-wide audience via Facebook on Saturday, July 4 at 7pm.
"The arrival of Covid-19 has had major impacts on our communities but let's not forget the bushfires that devastated us only months before," mayor Ray Thompson said.
"There are many still reeling in our community and struggling to recover from the disastrous fires on top of the recent droughts."
The Live'n'Local project is designed to bring the community back together to celebrate what's great about our communities and begin the process of healing and rebuilding together.
Performers will be local musicians who are also struggling in the wake of a year of natural disasters and each event will take place in a local venue.
While there will be limited local residents in attendance, depending on government restrictions and social distancing, each gig will be live streamed to a virtual audience so anyone who wants to can join in and see the variety of talents on display.
Contact venues directly for information on ticket availability.
