Sydney Folk Festival: The Next Generation of Folk

^^

When: Friday 16th August - Sunday 18th August
Where:
Various

Sydney Folk Festival - The Next Generation of Folk is a celebration of the many musical genres that sit under the big colourful umbrella that is modern-day folk. Produced by the ‘Folk Federation of NSW’ and staged over three days in various indoor venues across a strip of Pitt Street three minutes from Sydney Town Hall, the festival features some familiar names alongside many new voices. Audiences will experience great original songwriters, bluegrass, Afro-funk, world beats, Western swing, Celtic explorations, Cajun rhythms, Anglo balladry, blues, shanties and much more. In true festival style a weekend wristband ticket (season ticket) makes you part of the whole festival, not just audience. As well as savouring your choice of more-or-less continuous concerts across the venues, there are opportunities to hear expert musicians talking about their craft, story tellers spinning yarns and poets expounding on city and bush. For the more adventurous, particularly as night rolls on, irresistible rhythms will ring out in the dance venues ‘til late, featuring the likes of internationally renowned guitarist Moussa Diakite and his Afro dance band Wassado or driving young Aussie punk folk-fusion bands like The Bottlers and The Button Collective. The ‘Sydney Folk Festival’ is for everyone interested in adventurous music, songs that tell stories, and rhythms that set your feet tapping and your musical heart beating.
