Dear Port Fairy Folk Festival Friend,
 

Well what a week! Subscriber tickets sold out in record time. Early Bird Tickets are flying out the window and events and artists are flying in. 2018 will be filled with exciting collaborations, not the least being the magnificent Grigoryan Brothers with Adam Page. Slava, Leonard and Adam are currently writing music and developing ‘points of departure’ for Port Fairy Folk Festival, their first outing together as a trio.The result will be an amazing combination of music both written and improvised, sounds looped and distorted, embracing elements from their own worlds ... and beyond!   

King Marong and Afro Mandinko will perform and lead workshops to delight all ages and the Hussy Hicks make a welcome return to the festival. We are thrilled to be presenting two special On The Couch sessions with Brian Nankervis, one will focus on the the power of the political song … ‘for what it’s worth' and feature a magnificent mix of our guest artists including Nano Stern, Steve Poltz and more to be announced. Humour will also shine in 2018 with The Funny Side featuring The Topp Twins, Greedy Smith and Ted Egan just to name a few, and we are delighted to welcome the Lost Ragas, 10 String Symphony (USA), Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker (UK), Hillbilly Goats and La Busca to the festival for the first time.

From singing to dance, uke to percussion, face painting to lantern making … workshops will take place over the whole festival period. There is something for you and yours ... right from the top of your head to the tip of your toes.

Stay tuned for more news and the shuttle bus times.

Warmest regards,

The Program Team x
