2021 Port Fairy Folk Festival
An announcement we’ve all been waiting for! The Port Fairy Folk Festival returns in March with a mini-series, providing a little festival for big music lovers.
Taking place on the March long weekend, Friday 5 to Monday 8 March 2021, the Port Fairy Folk Festival March Concert Series celebrates homegrown folk talent, and includes Kutcha Edwards, Nigel Wearne, Ruth Hazleton with Fiona Steele and Luke Plumb, Louisa Wise, Charm of Finches, Mick Thomas’ Roving Commission, Kee’Ahn and an all-star line-up in the special event Keep the Circle Unbroken.
Port Fairy Folk Festival Program Director Justin Rudge said it was uplifting to be presenting a small selection of artists to celebrate folk music on the iconic March long weekend in Port Fairy.
“Whilst there won’t be thousands of people down the coast for the annual Folk Festival, this March long weekend we are still wanting music lovers to enjoy their favourite artists, but in a more intimate environment at the Reardon Theatre. I’m proud to present a diverse range of artists, including previous favourites of the festival, a selection of Music Victoria award nominated artists, as well as introduce Port Fairy to some wonderful up and coming talent. We can’t wait to welcome Folkies back to our coastal location,” said Justin.
The major Port Fairy Folk Festival will return to the seaside village of Port Fairy in March 2022. For further information and to stay in the loop for further announcements visit portfairyfolkfestival.com
