Melbourne singer-songwriter Cat Canteri has just released her amazing home made video “Fitzroy Bowl”. Fusing together the seemingly disparate notions of country music and skateboarding, the track is poignant and melancholy. And as someone who has spent a bit of time in the inner north of Melbourne it’s amazing to watch Canteri skating through so many familiar locations.

“Fitzroy Bowl” is taken from Cat Canteri’s upcoming album which is due out this March. Check out the video below and then head over to Cat Canteri’s blog to read more about the track and the clip:

This year’s event is set to take place on Saturday 10th March and features a fine lineup of amazing local folk artists (and Timber and Steel favourites) including Chaika, eüsh, Giffen, Gary & Jimmy Daley, Montgomery Church, Nic Cassey, Queen Porter Stomp, The Restless Legs, Roaring Forties, Summer Hill Community Choir, Tangalo Duo, Whoa Mule and more.

This year the Summer Hill Folk Festival will also host a blackboard stage giving anyone the opportunity to sign up and perform for 30 mins as well as vocal and dance workshops and an Irish Ceili Dance.
