Folk By The Sea back to share the love
Kiama’s Folk By The Sea music festival is back from its COVID-enforced year off, with the great line-up including some of Australia’s leading folk performers announced for the two-day festival at the Kiama Pavilion September 24-25.
This year’s line-up of more than 20 acts features talented Indigenous performer Shellie Morris from Queensland, the influential singer-songwriter Judy Small from Victoria, powerhouse folk-bluegrass bank The Button Collective, Victoria Celtic band Saoirse, soulful folk singer Daniel J Townsend from Tasmania, spicy Chutney from Sydney with tango to folk rock, the Redfern Shanty Club and local Kiama favourites The Water Runners and Penny Hartgerink.
Illawarra Folk Club Artistic Director David De Santi said the club was delighted to be able to stage the festival in 2021, after the 2020 event was called off due to the Pandemic.
“We are thrilled with the line-up for this year’s festival, which features some of Australia’s top folk music talent. But that is only part of the story. The main thing is that we are celebrating people getting back on stage, and putting on a great show – with all the COVID-safe protocols in place, of course.
“Some of most popular visiting acts from past years, like the Button Collective, Fly Little Sparrow and The Dixie Chooks, are returning, and there are some exciting new faces.”
Mr De Santi said COVID restrictions meant that tickets would be limited, so urged music fans to book early. He said NSW Government Discover Vouchers would be accepted up until July 31.
Tickets and the full program are available on the Folk By The Sea website www.folkbythesea.com.au
