The stage is set for an eclectic line-up of entertainment when the Festival of Small Halls returns to Goulburn for its autumn tour.
The vent will be held at Saint Saviour's Cathedral hall on Friday, April 16.
Festival of Small Halls is a series of tours that takes the best folk and contemporary acoustic artists, and sends them on the road to tiny halls in communities all over Australia.
The festival will feature performances by feel-good ukulele strummer and drummer, Bobby Alu, and two-piece indie pop-rock band, This Way North. Local musician and Hume Conservatorium scholarship holder, Callum White, will also perform.
Callum's passion for performing and learning to play instruments such as the mandolin and banjo will see him perform an acoustic set on stage.
Presented by veteran festival producers Woodfordia Inc, the 21st edition of the much-loved, not-for-profit music tour is taking on a packed tour schedule with the finest of homegrown talent visiting 20 community halls across NSW.
Festival producer, Eleanor Rigden, is excited to see the festival returning to small halls throughout regional NSW, especially considering the ever changing and challenging events environment.
"We were so inspired and impressed by the way communities have been able to adopt these new conditions and not shy away from the extra hoops they have had to jump through to keep their people safe," she said.
"Towards the end of 2020 when we got back on the road, hall committees and local groups really stepped up, realising it was more important than ever to support their communities to safely come together after a year of difficulty and isolation."
Goulburn Mulwaree Council's events officer, Angela Remington, is also looking forward to the festival's return.
"Goulburn has been a fixture on the Festival of Small Halls Summer Tour for the past three years. It has brought some of the best Australian and international folk artists here and has allowed a number of young local artists to showcase their talents in front of the local community," she said.
The event will be held at Saint Saviour's Hall at 6.30pm Friday, April 16. Admission is $15 for adults and $12 concession (pensioners/seniors/children under 16). Tickets are available online at: smallhalls.iwannaticket.com.au or at the door on the night.
