COMING EVENTS

The Cobargo Folk Festival Team and the Yuin Folk Club are committed to bringing you great live music.

We have a quality concert program lining up for 2017 and will publish details shortly.

We'll be holding a pre-festival happening in Cobargo on Saturday 18 February, featuring DEN HANRAHAN AND THE RUMRUNNERS at the Cobargo Hotel that night. Everyone is welcome and it's free.

This year we also have our first Festival Fringe Event: the premiere of Max Cullen's and Warren Fahey's new show "Dead Man Laughing", a conversation between two iconic Australia funny men, Roy Rene and Lenny Lower. "Dead Men Laughing" follows the hugely successful "Dead Men Talking", which toured Australia to great acclaim.

Max and Warren brought "Dead Men Talking" to Cobargo last year (see below) and played to a full house. We are thrilled they are premiering their new show in Cobargo.

This is a one-off concert at the Cobargo School of Arts on Thursday 23 February. It is separately ticketed ($30) and tickets can be purchased at deadmenlaughing-cobargo.floktu.com/

Yuin Folk Club members can purchase tickets through Coral Vorbach on 6493 6758. Seating is limited so get in quick.

Our 2016 concert program included Irish singer songwriter Colum Sands, renowned guitarists Tony McManus and Beppe Gambetta, UK folk duo Henry and Hannah Martin, irish singer, Eleanor McEvoy and iconic UK folksinger, Martyn Wyndham-Read. June saw the renowned Irish Fiddler, Donal O'Connor, and one of the world's top Uillean pipers, John McSherry perform in the Cobargo pub with Melbourne-based gutiarist Rob Hillman and Australian national step-dancing champion, Connor Hoy. This amazing concert followed a week later by an outstanding performance by singer-songwriter, Aine Tyrell and piper, Nick Martin.

Our May presentation of DEAD MEN TALKING drew a full house. This was a 90 minute play written by and featuring Max Cullen and Warren Fahey. First brought to the stage in March 2015, this lively one act show finds two legendary literary figures having a casual drink at the Leviticus Bar & Grill, Heaven’s Gate, and yarning about their legacies. Slightly cantankerous, yet grateful of their old friendship, Henry Lawson (Max Cullen) and A. B. ‘Banjo’ Paterson (Warren Fahey) discuss each others lives including their famous ‘War of Words’ in The Bulletin. The Yuin Folk Club joined with Bermagui U3A to bring this show to  the Cobargo School of Arts Hall. 

The Yuin Folk Club is run by volunteers and the money raised at the door goes to pay the artists, funds the sound system and pays for the tea and coffee. Hope to see you there!
