2019 National Folk Festival in Canberra over the Easter weekend
Thursday Bohemia Bar 7.30-10pm Welcome Singing Session – we are hosting the concert; we’ll sing a few songs to start and then invite up other performers.Although it’s a staged venue with PA, we’ll try to make it like a folk club as possible.
Friday Troubadour 4.30-5.30pm The Sailors Fate – “It’s better to drown than wait to be hung”. We take a deep dive down to Davy Jones’ locker to investigate the myriad ways to die at sea. A themed presentation with slides.
Saturday The Terrace 9.30-11.30pm – hosting the night’s singing session (not amplified) – a focus on chorus songs – all welcome.
Sunday Carnival 7.40-8.20pm – concert performance – some of our favourite songs.
Monday Troubadour 3.30-4.30pm Hard Yakka – “Songs of Australian working life” – a mix of traditional and well-crafted contemporary songs telling of people at work – convicts, factory workers, drovers, timber getters, sailors, shearers, farmers, miners and piece workers. A themed presentation with slides.
