Jamie Franklin, Luke Sciotto, Eliza Adams and Loius Spencely perform at the Bridge Hotel on Friday afternoon.

Echuca-Moama musical acts took centre-stage at the Bridge Hotel on Friday afternoon as part of a National Youth Week celebration.

The concert was organised at short-notice to coincide with National Youth Week, as well as the creation of a Facebook page, Wake Up Echuca-Moama, which was designed to encourage the region’s youth to create more events.

Regional five-piece Albian drew a crowd of about 50 to the hotel’s courtyard as the sun poked through the clouds for the first time in days.

The band played a mixture of covers and original songs, with plenty of support from the crowd of mostly families.

As well as Albian, former Echuca performer Sean ‘‘Fitzy’’ Fitzsimons took to the stage, as did Echuca band Terra Guard.

Organiser Lokki Somerville said he hoped the concert could be a starting point for more concerts and youth-based activities in the future.
