Christmas at the Swamp...Connell Thursby Friday, Van Walker and more

Christmas at the Swamp!

7PM: VAN WALKER
8PM: ILL-GOTTEN BOOTY
9PM: THURSBY, FRIDAY & CONNELL
10.30PM: DJ DOGGLER


Good friends and folk singers Mandy Connell, Girl Friday and Floyd Thursby are collaborating for a night of traditional and original folk melodies featuring guitar, mandolin, ukulele and three part harmonies. 

There is no mistaking the startlingly honest voice of former Stray Hens frontwoman Mandy Connell. Soaring over riffs on handmade guitars, she is the darling of Australian folk.
Girl Friday's folk, jazz and blues sensibility evokes a sense of nostalgia, innocence and melancholy.
Floyd Thursby has spent over 20 years writing songs about love and death, wild nights and quiet days, sacred moments and everyday life.

Join us at Swamplands Bar - 744 High St, Thornbury VIC 3071

Burke & Wills Folk Festival
Mar
9
to Mar 11

Burke & Wills Folk Festival

This is one of the world’s smallest folk festivals, and is more like a private garden party with almost non-stop music and entertainment than a 'festival' per se.

The event is held on the Labour Day weekend every March and usually attracts a full house of around 150 people.  Consequently booking is initially by invitation, which means that priority is given to people who have attended before, and their friends, and if all tickets are not taken by the end of November it is then opened up to anyone.
