Last year was my first ever Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival and I have to say I was impressed. It’s a small, family orientated folk festival that manages to attract some amazing talent, both locally and from abroad.
This year’s Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival will take place on the 24th, 25th and 26th of October in Dorrigo, NSW. The lineup includes a bunch of overseas acts including Annie Lou Band (Canada), Chris Henry and The Hardcore Grass (USA), Colin O’Brien (USA), Kirk Sutphin and Eddie Bond (USA) and Tattletale Saints (NZ) along with a bunch of local Timber and Steel favourites like Catgut, CloudStreet, Dan Parsons, Fred Smith, Lucy Wise Trio, Margaret and Bob Fagan, Oh Pep!, One Up Two Down, Stray Hens, The Company (above), The Mid North, The Morrisons and many many more.
