Fyansford Folk Festival- 2016
My first Festival in Geelong was held at the beautiful Old Timber Mills precinct in Fyansford, Geelong. The event was a magic success held in two parts and on two separate stages. The morning section saw a series of folk singers in the Old Fyansford Paper Mills Ubu Art Gallery. The festival was intermissioned by fire twirling performers dancing to tribal drums. The second part of the event saw a series of rock bands which riled up an excited audience!
I also had an upcoming local as the Artist in Residence at the Studio exclusively for the event. Some previous acts from Fyansford were recast with the newcomers including my Headliners. I engaged acclaimed singer/songwriter Ben Salter as my solo headliner with Little Murders, a veteran band of over 30 years experience as my band headliner. These were compliemented by rising Melbourne Stars King Groaker & Parmy Dhillon as well as a host of excellent local bands and solo performers. The opening act was unique sound artist/therapist Vicki Hallet who brought good vibes to the whole event.
GFest 2017 - Geetroit City
My 2nd Local Festival was held at the fantastic Art/Music space Kubu Studio right in the heart of Geelong. A bigger and more ambitious affair it attracted well over 100 punters and I personally chose the 15 acts who performed which I felt would blend and compliement each other.
