Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival
23 October @ 8:00 am - 25 October @ 12:00 am AEDT
The Festival has been nurtured to a size where it is able to continue yet still holds a very authentic and homely atmosphere. The Festival Committee is proud that we’re able to present the finest traditional, contemporary and acoustic music to you, our dearest patrons. We find joy in seeing festival audiences and musicians connecting, jamming and enjoying what we can so happily and humbly provide. To us, the festival is all about that connection and the celebration of it.
The Festival Committee recognises the importance of involving and providing younger generations with opportunities to perform and learn. This is why each year our programme features a combination of artists with a fresh realisation of music, and practiced, well-versed artists from Australia and overseas. We also acknowledge and respect the importance of traditions and heritage, and the exploration of these genres that may sometimes be challenging but at the same time allows us to encompass our musicians as they explore new territories.
