Sydney Folk Festival 16-18th Aug [Folk Federation of NSW]

The Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts will come alive with the sound of music over the weekend of the 16-18th August for the inaugural Sydney Folk Festival’s celebration of music, dance and spoken word.

The SMSA is one of four venues within 5 minutes walk across Pitt Street — our rooms will all feature programming that includes virtuosos musicians, concerts, theatre shows, talks and participation workshops. The festival has a dazzling program including major concerts in the Pitt Street Uniting Church and two days of dancing and singing in the City Tattersalls and nearby Edinburgh Castle Hotel.

With headliners like Eric Bogle, Luke Plum and Keith Potger, loads of well-known local talent and a commitment to supporting the next generation of performers, this is a weekend not to be missed.
