The annual end-of-year celebration for the Folk Federation of NSW, this year marking the Federation’s 50th anniversary will take place on Sunday 13th December, 2pm at the Gaelic Club, Devonshire Street, Surry Hills.

This is a rare opportunity to enjoy a live concert but we’re not out of the COVID woods yet so tickets will be limited to comply with social distancing regulations.

The program will include sets from The Fossickers, Craig Sinclair, Newcastle’s Sweet Songs and Soft Guitar and The Last Aurochs, not forgetting the yearly highlight of a mummers play devised and performed by Sydney’s Black Joak Morris.

The concert will be interspersed with short contributions from founding members of the Folk Federation of NSW.
