Get Your Folk On!
Are you joining us for SydFolkFest21? There’s no better way to find your folk. Whether you like it a little bit trady, a little bit revival or spiced up with modern grooves and catchy hooks you’ll find plenty on our program to get your folk on. Styles come together often fusing elements of rock, classical or jazz to create emerging contemporary folk genres. It’s an adventure you won’t want to miss.
Here’s a taster
