This Friday and Sunday will see the launch of a very interesting and exciting project for the Adelaide folk scene. The Preloved Folk Project sees ten of Adelaide’s finest folk musicians hand over one of their most treasured songs to one another to be reworked, re-created and re-recorded as their own – the way it should be in the folk tradition.

Preloved Folk features the likes of Cal Williams Jr, Emily Davis, The Yearlings, Courtney Robb, Anthony D’Antonio, Kelly Menhennett, Andy & Marta, Simon Peter, Mary Webb and The Timbers and has been funded thanks to a Pozible campaign (that hit it’s goal long before we were even aware of it).

The album will be launched over two dates, Friday the 2nd and Sunday 4th November at The Wheatsheaf Hotel in Adelaide. For more information on how to get your hands on tickets for the launch or even how to get your hands on one of the albums check out the official Facebook page here.

Adelaide has one of the most exciting, vibrant folk and acoustic scenes in Australia, a fact that is quite often overlooked by those in the Eastern states. At Timber and Steel we do our best to introduce these artists to the rest of the country and we’re constantly amazed by just how much amazing stuff we uncover.

So we thought we’d share this with you: A group of Adelaide folk artists are coming together under the project name Preloved Folk to record an album of covers of each others songs that will showcase them to the rest of Australia and maybe even the world. Some of the artists involved in the project will be familiar to Timber and Steel readers while others are just waiting to be discovered: Cal Williams Jr, Emily Davis, The Yearlings (above), Courtney Robb, Anthony D’Antonio, Kelly Menhennett, Andy & Marta, Simon Peter, Mary Webb and The Timbers.

To fund the project Preloved Folk have set up a crowdfunding page through Pozible. If you want to support quality South Australian folk music we recommend getting yourself over there and throwing Preloved Folk a couple of bucks. And while you’re doing that check out the introductory video to the project below.
