Dear Port Fairy Folk Festival Friend,
By popular demand and because we love him, we have been working since April to present the stunning Gregory Alan Isakov at the 2019 Festival, and as they say in the classics, all good things come to those who wait. In 2019 you will have the opportunity to experience the hauntingly beautiful and glorious music that he is renowned for. Hot on the heels of the release of his fourth full-length studio album Evening Machines, Gregory Alan Isakov will leave no doubt in your mind as to why he is being hailed as one of the most 'convincing' folk artists around these days, and we are so very pleased he is able to be a part of Port Fairy Folk Festival for his first tour of Australia.
Many musicians have day jobs to make ends meet. However, few artists maintain the lifestyle kept by Gregory Alan Isakov. The Colorado-based indie-folk artist is a full-time farmer who sells vegetable seeds and grows various market crops on this three-acre farm, while also tending to a thriving music career. Whether singing about the land, immigration or love lost and found, his stunning vocals, incisive lyrics and musicianship will leave you wanting more.
It is with great pleasure we present Gregory Alan Isakov in 2019, where he joins a stellar national and international program which will be a festival of new discoveries as well as many iconic artists who have performed at the festival during it’s rich 42 year history.
