Dear Port Fairy Folk Festival Friend,
 

It is with deep and heartfelt sadness that we farewelled Chris Wilson earlier this year. Chris left an indelible mark on not only the Australian music scene, but on communities and individuals throughout the country. His generosity was sublime and his talent extraordinary. Chris had a long history with Port Fairy Folk Festival. Just last year he performed with his powerhouse trio Skronkadoodledoo with Shannon Bourne and Fenn Wilson, as well as his superb performance at the Gospel Session. He also played at the festival over the years with The Pirates Of Beer, a mighty band with Chris and Sarah Carroll at the helm, Crown of Thorns, Shannon Bourne and Shane O’Mara, just to name a few. No matter what the line up, Chris truly lit up our stages, and stages across the country. More importantly he sparked passion and inspired people to push boundaries and aim for the stars.

Chris has left an incredible legacy to those who knew him and loved his music. 

Our Saturday night blues session is dedicated to the memory and legacy of Chris Wilson. We will celebrate his life and lift the roof in his honour, just as he did the same time last year on Stage 2 with Skronkadoodledoo. It will be a stellar gathering of family, friends and lovers of his music. Featuring: Ash Grunwald, Ben Waters Band with Derek Nash with Sweet Felicia & Ash Davies, Blue Shaddy, Eddy Boyle, Fenn Wilson, Kerri Simpson, Shannon Bourne, Z-Star & more. Hosted by Wayne Jury.

Saturday, Stage 2, 10:45pm - 12:00am

With much love
