Festival of Small Halls comes to Tassie
Not just content with one great weekend of folk, organisers of the Cygnet Folk Festival have partnered with the Woodford and Illawarra Folk Festivals to deliver the best of the fests to 7 community halls and theatres in regional Tasmania from 18-24 January 2016.
The Festival of Small Halls Summer Tour concentrates on visiting towns where communities are strong, but may not have access to high quality musical acts due to their remote locations, or lack of a ‘traditional’ venue.
This is the sixth Australian tour for Festival of Small Halls – a grass-roots tour that pairs a visiting international artist and a notable Australian folk artist for shows in small towns and community halls.
Canadian power trad trio The East Pointers and Australian singer-songwriter Liz Stringer will be hitting the road together for the first time on this tour to perform in Bagdad, Sulphur Creek, Wynyard, Longford, Chudleigh, Queenstown and Southport.
For your chance to win a FREE DOUBLE PASS to one of the shows, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Festival of Small Halls Ticket Giveaway and the town of your choice. You can check out a list of the venues and tour dates here. Competition closes Sunday 17 Jaunary at 6pm. The winner will be notified by email after the competition closes.
Tickets are on sale now at www.festivalofsmallhalls.com and via select community outlets.
