The next Cobargo Folk Festival will be held on the 24-26 February 2017.
The Cobargo Folk Festival Team and the Yuin Folk Club are committed to bringing you great music throughout 2016. We have a quality concert program lined up for the rest of the year with a heap of international and national artists. We have had a feast of music in March and April with Irish singer songwriter Colum Sands, renowned guitarists Tony McManus and Beppe Gambetta, followed by UK folk duo Henry and Hannah Martin.
Our next concert is not to be missed. DEAD MEN TALKING is a 90 minute play written by and featuring Max Cullen and Warren Fahey. First brought to the stage in March 2015, this lively one act show finds two legendary literary figures having a casual drink at the Leviticus Bar & Grill, Heaven’s Gate, and yarning about their legacies. Slightly cantankerous, yet grateful of their old friendship, Henry Lawson (Max Cullen) and A. B. ‘Banjo’ Paterson (Warren Fahey) discuss each others lives including their famous ‘War of Words’ in The Bulletin. They recite poems, sing songs and generally banter and have a laugh about life’s changing circumstance.
The Yuin Folk Club has joined with Bermagui U3A to bring this show to the Cobargo School of Arts Hall on14 May at 7.00pm.
Tickets $35 cons $25. The show has sold out across Australia and we recommend pre-booking. For booking call Coral 0427919010
The Yuin Folk Club is run by volunteers and the money raised at the door goes to pay the artists, funds the sound system and pays for the tea and coffee. Hope to see you there!
