Dear Port Fairy Folk Festival Friend,
 

The 2020 visual arts and writers program is a real treat. The Lonely Goth Exhibition features lyrics by Mick Thomas and Drawings by Craig Smith. In 2002 Mick Thomas released Dust On My Shoes, a stunning album which featured the song The Lonely Goth. This song struck a chord with many; adults who had felt misunderstood and isolated in their youth, and young people going through that sometimes perilous time of discovering who they are. This was the spring board to invite Craig Smith, one of Australia’s leading illustrators to create images for this wonderful song. A book was created and is now out of print, but we are delighted to be exhibiting The Lonely Goth drawings as a part of the 44th Port Fairy Folk Festival, at Blarney Books and Art, which will include a meet the artist session with Craig Smith.

Words are entertaining and inspire, and this year we have poetry with Bob Jensen, with the very special Prayer to the Morning poetry and music collaboration with Tony McManus, and Other Voices, featuring Bob’s poetry put to music by a stellar line up, The East Pointers, Hubert Francis and Shane Howard. 

Jeff Lang launches his much anticipated memoir Some Memories Never Die, and of course the writers program would not be the same without Jim Haynes, OAM, and this year he is joined by Diane Jackson-HillMaggie Somerville, Maya LinnellStephen Whiteside, Mick Coventry, plus Gordon Philips-Ross, our roving poet.

From the poetry of Dame Mary Gilmore put to music, to The Magic Of Children’s Literature to the Poet’s Brawl and Aussie Morning Show, and the much loved Pat Glover Storytelling Award … for the writer within you … or the lover of a good yarn, there is something for everyone. 
 
Best regards,

Port Fairy Folk Festival.
