Instrument forums allow instrumental maestros, who are outstanding
in their field, to showcase that expertise in special concerts. This
year we are showcasing guitar and fiddle - see page 8 for further

YOUTH STAGE - THE CROSSING
What blistering talent we have among our young performers. There’s
a growing list of people who got some of their first serious gigs at The
Crossing and went on to greater things. Find out more about this
special venue on pages 12 and 13.
A wonderful feature of a folk festival is the impromptu
sessions that sprout wherever musicians and singers gather.
The most popular sessions are usually around the Festival Bar area
(but they can break out anywhere!). And of course there are the very
popular singing sessions - join the programmed session on Saturday
night - join in a chorus or lead a song - you’ll be glad that you did!
MARKET & FOOD STALLS
Three coffee vans and a range of healthy food options from snacks
to meals (sweet to savoury) will help to keep you fuelled up from
breakfast until late - available all weekend.
You will find a wonderful range of fresh food and local produce, local
craft and exotic goods at our street markets!

The Cobargo Folk Festival loves dancers. Our dance program is
presented by Fran Robertson, whose shimmy has to be seen to be
believed. Dance offers everyone an opportunity to meet new people,
improve coordination and fitness, develop confidence and challenge the
Fran has put together a diverse program of dance performances,
workshops and participatory dances held at the Brolga venue. The
dance workshops are a great way to a learn the techniques, history and
culture behind a variety of dance styles - try a few moves then step
out at the evening dances.
No experience is necessary
and the dance
program is open to all ages!
We are sure you will find something of interest whether you are a
complete beginner or seasoned dancer.
