Verandah Music at the 2017 National Folk Festival

We had a busy but rewarding time at this year's National. Following the folklore conference and Flying Emus concert on April 13 at the NLA, we premiered 'The Music of Mawson's Men' at the Trocadero to a large and enthusiastic audience. Stay tuned for more on Mawson's Men in the coming months, for now Rob and I would like to thank:  

Christina Mimmocchi
Olya Willis
Shelly Grant
Pat Cranney
Baz Cooper
Don Brien
Jason Roweth
Denis McKay

for helping us make it happenThis unusual folk documentary was well received and there may be other chances to see it if you missed out this time. More later!

On Saturday we ran another well attended workshop on Folklore and Family History, learning as much, if not more, than we imparted. Thanks to all who attended. We'll be updating the Family Traditions section of this blog based on that session.

Later, we did a short bracket on the Bush Traditions concert in the Lyric.

In between, everyone did all sorts of other things too numerous to mention. Back home tired but happy!

Watch out for news of upcoming Verandah music events...

Rob and Graham
