The Maldon Folk Festival has become a bit like Christmas – it comes around every year and has done so since 1974 bringing together an extensive gathering of performers from around the world and Australia.
It’s remarkable that this event has been running for more than four decades and still manages to entertain visitors from all over the country and beyond. This is an event that encompasses the entire town of Maldon with music, dance, interactive workshops and various activities. The list of performers is extensive – far too many to list here, however with over thirty acts, across three stages over four days the potential to have a rip roaring time is very real indeed.
This year sees Gina Jeffreys return to Maldon along with husband – award winning record producer and musician, Rod McCormack. In January Gina celebrated 28 years in the music industry, which has taken her to the top of the country music arena. Gina was a pioneer for women in Australian country music and forged a path for many others to follow.
The Maldon Folk festival will run throughout the weekend of November 1st to 4th. For more details of the extensive programme, visit the website where you can pre-purchase tickets and as they are limited in number, it might be an idea to get online now. http://www.maldonfolkfestival.com
