First Artists Announced for WOMADelaide

Eddi Reader

We’re getting pretty good at this prediction thing. In the last month we have started rumours around festival appearances next year from Eddi Reader (above) and Sharon Shannon and lo and behold they’ve both been announced for the 2012 WOMADelaide festival.

And its looking to be another Timber and Steel friendly event again next year with Blue King Brown, First Aid Kit, The Pigram Brothers and The Bearded Gypsy Band also making the WOMADelaide first lineup.

Obviously this is just a taster of what’s to come next year but it’s a very exciting taster. WOMADelaide is held from the 9th to the 12th March in Adelaide. The full lineup so far is below:

Blue King Brown (Australia)
Diego Guerrero y El Solar de Artistas (Spain)
Eddi Reader (Scotland)
First Aid Kit (Sweden)
Groundation (Jamaica/USA)
Johnny Clegg (South Africa)
Lo’Jo (France)
Master Drummers of Burundi (Burundi)
Sharon Shannon Big Band (Ireland)
Shivkumar Sharma (India)
Staff Benda Billili (Democratic Republic of Congo)
The Pigram Brothers (Australia)
Tinariwen (Mali)
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain (UK)
