2016 means the 50th anniversary of The National Folk Festival, and that means some pretty big artist announcements over the coming months.

The first of those announcements dropped today with the “6 Pack Taster” revealing six of our favourite artists for the festival. That announcement included Canadian trad trio The East Pointers, Central Australian singer-songwriter Jacinta Price, Brisbane bluegrass masters The Company, folk favourites The Mae Trio, slide-guitarist and songwriter Andrew Winton and Scottish folk-fusion band Mànran.

The National Folk Festival takes place in Canberra over the Easter long weekend, 24th to 28th March. Earlybird tickets are available now via the official site. Stay tuned for more artist announcements soon!
