Dear Port Fairy Folk Festival Friend,
Excitement continues to brew in the glorious township of Port Fairy. The jigsaw puzzle that is this mighty festival is taking shape in the most wonderful way. In 2019, as in previous years, we are presenting outstanding artists who represent the rich music of many cultures and influences.... And now we are delighted to announce that one of Australia’s most revered performers, Kasey Chambers will ignite not only the festival but the “campfire” for a musical journey through the stories of places, people, cultures and sounds that have inspired her throughout her career and travels. Be part of this intimate acoustic experience, enjoying songs new and old that have shaped Kasey’s rich and unique life travelling through the vast lands of Australia, America and Africa.
We are also thrilled to announce that one of Australia’s most accomplished and loved blues and roots musicians, Ash Grunwald will be joining us in 2019. We also welcome to Port Fairy for the very first time the multi award winning act Afenginn from Denmark and the inspiring improvisational Greek ensemble Reβetien.
2019 will be a magical cacophony of music and stories from Canada to South Africa, Greece to Ireland, the USA to Wales, England to Australia, Italy to Scotland and beyond... The Port Fairy Folk Festival takes you on a glorious magic carpet ride of exploration and discovery.
