Dear Port Fairy Folk Festival Friend,

The program office is bursting at the seams with special events for every day of the festival. In 2019 we are are tickled pink (…we are loving reigniting old turns of phrase) to continue to highlight and celebrate the global influence of Bluegrass and Americana. In 2019 we are introducing North East x South West featuring artists who hail from the divine coastline of North East Canada, the USA, and Australia, gathering for one special event at Port Fairy, on the glorious coastline of South West Victoria. NE X SW will feature Aria Hall of Fame inductee, the magnificent Kasey Chambers, New Brunswick's sensational washboard-infused, old-timer roots duo, Tomato/Tomato, the wonderful Front Country from San Franciscothe brilliant Michigan based Red Tail Ring and our very own and quite divine The Weeping Willows. This great event will showcase not only the universality of great music, but the the personal and geographic nuances and stories that can be told with this art form. Hosted by Denise Hylands and presented especially for you at Port Fairy in 2019.

Of course there is Meet The Guests with festival icon Paul Petran, who will take you in to the lives and music of a brilliant array of artists: Basia Bulat, Bongeziwe Mabandla, Luca Ciarla, Leanne Tennant, Tomato/Tomato, Paul “Flacco” Livingston and Mick Pealing.

And … of course there is more. The Guitarists, hosted by another festival icon, Nick Charles, will feature brilliant exponents of Brazilian guitar Paul Carey & Julian Scheffer, and wonderful artists who make guitars sing:  Wallis Bird, Dave Steel, Zee Gachette and Mal Eastick.

If you want to get to know two of our very special guests Neko Case and Alejandro Escovedo you can meet them On The Couch with Brian Nankervis.

We are also delighted to announce SON (Susan O'Neill) will be joining the Sharon Shannon Band for their two incredible concerts.

In the coming weeks we will be announcing the writers program, song writers forum, candlelight concert, blues session and yes, you guessed it -  a few more exciting surprises!

Early Bird Tickets are on sale until midnight 21 December … what a perfect Christmas gift if you are stuck for ideas.

Yours in the spirit of joy and adventure,

The Program Team. x
