It looks like we’re well and truly into that time of year when the major folk festivals start announcing their lineups. The next cab off the rank is the Port Fairy Folk Festival, arguably one of Australia’s top folk events, which next year will be held from the 11th to the 14th March.

The Port Fairy Folk Festival enters its 40th year in 2016 so as you’d expect the lineup is going to be huge. The first round of artists did not disappoint either – announced this time around were Ayleen O’Hanlon, Claymore, DakhaBrakha (Ukraine), Dave Arden, Eric Bogle, Fourplay, Grigoryan Brothers, John McCutcheon (USA), Katie Noonan’s Vanguard, Lloyd Spiegel, Manran (Scotland), Mary Black (Ireland, above), Moxie (Ireland), Nicky Bomba’s Bustamento, Pierce Brothers, Ruby Boots, Steve Poltz (USA), Sara Storer, Shellie Morris, Suzannah Espie, The Bushwackers, The East Pointers (Canada), The Ugly Uncles, Truckstop Honeymoon (USA), Three Kings, The Woohoo Revue and The Young’uns (UK) with plenty more to come.
