For the past couple of years a simply delightful folk festival has sprung up in the sleepy Sydney suburb of Summer Hill and it’s quickly flourished to become one of our favourite events of the year.

The Summer Hill Folk Festival is centered around the historic Summer Hill Church and features a full day of music, workshops, markers and more. 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.

The Summer Hill Folk Festival is a free community event. For more details check out the official Facebook event here.

Street Lights and Dandelions at The Piano Room, Sydney

The latest in a long list of new folk and acoustic nights to pop up on the Sydney scene is Street Lights and Dandelions at the Piano Room in Kings Cross. This one off night (that will hopefully become regular if successful) will take place on the 18th December and has a fantastic lineup.

You’re probably already familiar with Boy & Bear drummer Tim Hart’s solo work and he’ll be heading up Street Lights and Dandelions along with experimental-acoustic three piece EUSH, the wonderful alt-country songwriting of Damien Enmark (whose free track “Wayfaring Stranger” we’ve embedded below) and a stripped back Elle Kennard.

Street Lights and Dandelions kicks off at 6PM and entry is free (plus $5 cocktails all night). For more info check out the official Facebook invite here.
