Sydney Folk Festival
August 16, 2019 - August 18, 2019
Sydney is set to host its own folk music festival.
The Sydney Folk Festival will see the best of New South Wales folk performers converge on Sydney, creatively using venues across an entire block of Pitt Street, in a variety of performances from theatrical to world beats.
The festival’s theme is ‘The next generation of folk music’ and its diverse programming will showcase the new interpreters of the many musical genres under the folk music banner. With an emphasis on youth, the performers will range from the winners of the NSW Folk Federation’s 2019 Junior and Young Folk Awards, to legends like internationally recognised Australian songwriter, Eric Bogle.
There will also be Afro funk, bluegrass, singer songwriters, acapella, old timey, Celtic, world music, blues, ballads, bush bands and even some high-kicking Celtic punk and rousing young shanty singers.
