You don’t know what you are missing, particularly if it is in a beautiful heritage village like St Albans, in the backblocks somewhere between Wiseman’s Ferry and Cessnock.
Such a wonderful diversity of performances and workshops on a variety of instruments. And the Settlers Arms is always thrumming with traditional jam sessions.
We are thrilled to be returning to St Albans Folk Festival after a number of years absence.
The Ukastle Ukestra has been offered to perform, as well as Jack n Jel.
We have been offered a reasonably generous allocation of tickets for the festival. Some of these are weekend tickets, others are just day tickets. We still do not know the performance timetable, but we imagine we will be appearing on both days of the weekend.
Our preference is that people are available all weekend, but that is certainly not mandatory.
We will allocate tickets based on a number of different criteria (and that doesn’t mean just based on skill!). Please come and join us. It is a beautiful weekend, and a chance for a great performance!
Most people camp, from pup tents to Winnebagos. There is free camping (opposite the pub – not ideal if you like your sleep), and other camping for very low cost. And in the hills surrounding there are plenty of BnB type situations, or down the road 20 minutes (plus a ferry ride) there is even more accommodation at Wisemans Ferry.
How to get there?
It’s a 2.5-3 hour drive, via either Cessnock, or down the freeway towards Sydney and turnoff at Somersby. Here’s a map.
