National Folk Festival

Festival Folk sing Judy SmalIt’s not long now till we head on south to our Nation’s capital to celebrate all things folk at the National Folk Festival, held over the Easter weekend in Canberra.  Although we are not “officially” listed in this years’ program, we will no doubt be seen on and off the plethora of stages over the five days.  We are particularly excited to be playing at Festival Folk Sing Judy Small, a CD launch concert celebrating the songs of Judy Small, sung as the name would suggest, by all manner of festival folk including One Step Forward, Tangled Web, Penelope Swales, Enda Kenny and The Fagans.  We have been privileged not only to be invited to play at this wonderful event, but to open it with our rendition of Sky of the Southern Cross.  The concert is on at 10am on Monday, 1st April at the Scrumpy stage.  Make sure you get there early to get a seat!

We will also be performing a set of our own material at the Flute and Fiddle – 8.00pm, Thursday 28th March.

Be sure to also keep an eye out for us playing with The Wish List, a wonderful new fiddle-singing duo comprised of Emma Nixon & Nicole Murray.  Rebecca will also be playing some cello with Judy Small on Sunday night at the Terrace, from 8pm, and with Frencham Smith at the Trocodero at 3pm on Monday afternoon.  And we’ll no doubt see you in the session bar!  Happy Easter!
