Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival 2022
It was great to be back at a real, live, face-to-face folk festival. Here we are in the Pavilion with our new member, Jude Alexander.
Rocking the Boat
40 Degrees South helped “Rock the Boat” on board the James Craig for the 2018 Christmas Party of the Sydney Heritage Fleet.
End of Year Folk Bash
Seasonal songs were the order of the day when the Forties sang at the Folk Federation of NSW’s annual variety End of Year Folk Bash held at the Gaelic Club in Surry Hills. Black Joak Morris presented a Mummer’s Play – always the highlight of the Bash. The evening was complemented by some exuberant renditions of English Village Carols at the Shakespeare.
NSW History Week
The theme of History Week in NSW was “Life and Death” and, together with The Museum’s own ‘pirate band’ The Mutineers, 40 Degrees South relished singing some of the more macabre songs in their repertoire.
There were stories about Australian convict pirates and whaling ship disasters followed by rum (courtesy of Peg Leg Tavern) and sea biscuit (made by our own Sue Brian)!
The concert took place in the Conservation Building of the Australian National Maritime Museum.
