As an extra special gift right before Christmas the National Folk Festival has just announced that its 2016 headliner will be none other than Nancy Kerr.
Kerr is a firm festival favourite and The National are very proud to not only have her headlining with her Sweet Visitor Band but also as part of her duo project with James Fagan and with Australian super-group The Fagans. That’s a lot of Nancy Kerr to get your eardrums around next year.
Along with the headliner announcement the National Folk Festival also slipped a bunch of other artists into its 2016 lineup including The Little Stevies, Frencham Smith, Sparrow-Folk, Sásta, Doctor Stovepipe, Miriam Lieberman with Lara Goodridge and Kate Adams, Black Mountain String Band, The Fiddle Chicks, Frumious and The Wheeze and Suck Band.
The 50th 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.
