Today is the day! The weather promises to be beautiful, the Festival Program is fabulous, and the company will be great. Join us for the weekend, an evening, or a day of great music, jamming, workshops, and all the fun of the Festival!
We start today, Friday 22 November at 5 pm, kicking off with Slim Dime and the Prairie Kings. They will open for us with their their energetic Old Timey Swing. Stay in the Marquee throughout the evening for a wonderful selection performers in the festival’s acoustic roots concert. Stay on for Andrew Clermont’s Suppler Club where you will experience musicianship of an exceptional quality.
Saturday morning gets going with some excellent workshops to attend. Throughout the day there will be led-sessions under the verandah, performances in the Marquee, open-mic opportunities in the Blackboard tent, more workshops in the Woolshed and jamming everywhere! The evening brings us the Bluegrass Concert in the Marquee. With some old favourites and some exciting new (to Wirrina) bands this evening promises a world-standard of Bluegrass performances. The evening concludes with the Supper Club Unplugged—don’t miss this one! And then, take your instruments over to the verandah area for jamming into the wee hours.
Sunday morning—after at least one coffee—take yourself over to the Marquee and make amends for your sins the night before with some soothing Gospel singing led by Rev Rowdy and friends. Then it’s more workshops, a great line-up of performances in the Marquee, and jamming. (There’s always jamming at Wirrina!)
Food, coffee and other beverages will be available to purchase at the kiosk.
