The Cobargo Folk Festival Team and the Yuin Folk Club are committed to bringing you great live music.
The Paul McKenna Band, the award winning Glasgow-based folk group, is coming to the Cobargo School of Arts Hall on Wed 6 June from 7pm. One of the best bands to come out of Scotland in the past 20 years, they promise to put on a fabulous show.
The Paul McKenna Band is brought to Australia by Woodfordia Tours (yes, that Woodfordia!) and we are thrilled that the band has included Cobargo in their Australian Tour. The band is also appearing at the National Celtic Festival, Port Arlington, Vic.
Tickets are $20 for YFC members and $25 for non-members and can be purchased directly from www.paulmckennaband.com and at the door on the night.
This is one definitely not to be missed. This is the first concert that the Club is presenting in partnership with Woodfordia Tours and we are looking forward to many more!
The following month,Totally Gourdgeous, the much-loved Melbourne folk act is celebrating 25 years of musical mayhem, appearing at the School of Arts on 4 July.
Totally Gourdgeous are undertaking an Aussie tour to celebrate their 20th year.
The sounds of Joni Mitchell meets James Brown in Bob Marley’s Pumpkin patch via The Muppets. It’s the original line-up of Penelope Swales, Mal Webb, Carl Pannuzzo & Andrew Clermont. The gourd instruments are made by Penelope and all the players are incredibly versatile and berserk on Mandolin, Fiddle, Guitar, Fretless Bass & percussion soaked in stunning harmony, mirth & mayhem.
The band says: “Some of you saw Mal Webb at the last Cobargo Fest but how far down the rabbit hole can you go – see him further transformed!! ”
We have a quality concert program lined up for 2018, which was kicked off in January by visiting Irish band, BREAKING TRAD, with the awesome Gino Lupari on bodhran and vocals, followed in April with Irish/German band CARA and Cornish bluegrass/Old Timey wunderkind, FLATS AND SHARPS.
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!
Help us keep music live in Cobargo!
