Hey there folks!
It’s been a while since you’ve heard from us, but our thoughts have been with you all. Our thoughts have also been on putting together an alternative to what would have been the 19th Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival 2020.
We are excited to finally make this announcement!
The Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival Inc. is delighted to present the DF&BF Inc. Concert Series 2020!
The first segment of this series ‘The DF&BF Inc. Concert Series Presents Old-Time’ will go live on Saturday 24th October at 7pm AEDT on our Facebook and YouTube pages. Don’t forget to go like and subscribe to be sure not to miss this concert!
We are absolutely delighted to have Cat & Clint, Craig Woodward, Ash, Andy & Mac (USA), Golden Shoals (USA -Pictured above), Jeremy Marcotte, Paul Brown & Terri McMurray (USA) and the Bucking Mules (USA), hosted by The Lyrebirds.
If you have attended the Dorrigo Old-Time Music School, you may recognise some of these musicians as tutors! We’d love to have some past attendees tuning in to this concert.
Hosts, The Lyrebirds, are Jenny Shimmin (AUS) and Danielle Vita (USA), a couple of the highest-regarded old-time/bluegrass ladies in Australia!
This first Old-Time focused segment will be followed by ‘The DF&BF Inc. Concert Series Hosted by the Dorrigo House Band’.
You might have seen The Dorrigo House Band perform at the 18th Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival in 2019. The DHB is made up of some Australia’s finest Bluegrass pickers. Led by Daniel Watkins the band is Hamish Davidson, Thomas Kendall, Kat Mear, Paddy Montgomery and Kimberley Wheeler.
The DHB will play host to virtual guests The New Graces, Circus No. 9 (USA), Good Guy Hank (SCOT), Harry Jakamarra & Elwood Gray, Chloe & Jason Roweth, Rachel Baiman & George Jackson (USA), The James Harper Band (SCOT) and Jake Blount (USA).
We are yet to set a date for this second installation in our Concert Series hosted by the DHB, but we’ll be sure to keep you informed.
Keep an eye on our social media, www.dorrigofolkbluegrass.com and E-Newsletter for further information about The DF&BF Inc. Concert Series 2020!
It’s a pleasure to be working with Shoelace Creative to bring these virtual concerts to the world. A special shout out to Jules and Ty for their dedication to this project, we most definitely couldn’t have done it without them!
It’s our priority to ensure the musicians and producers involved are properly recognised for their contributions, both to this project and to the live acoustic music community. We would massively appreciate your assistance in doing this. Viewers will be able to make donations via Donorbox as the concerts go live.
We can’t wait to enjoy music with ya’ll again! Thank you for your ongoing support of the Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival Inc. and this wonderful music community.
