The lively program includes the renowned indigenous performer, Marlene Cummins; our Save-the-Earth choir, Ecopella; the redoubtable guitarist and songwriter, Peter Miller-Robinson; a trio called The Third Voice featuring Christina, Clarita and Gemma – well known for their individual work as vocalists and choir leaders; Nerida Cuddy – the Mary Black of the Western Plains; Baggage & Stuff – the spirited veteran boyband ensembled from Men with Day Jobs and Aubrey & Purton; – and of course – the members of the Black Joak Morris Team will be there in all their ribald finery with a Mummers Play, reinventing a centuries old tradition. We also hope to include the recipients of the Folk Fed’s 2021 Young Folk Artist Awards. Come and help us celebrate the wonderful world of folk music, embracing life again after the deprivations of the pandemic.
