Another stunning line up for the 23rd Annual Cobargo Folk Festival with Eric Bogle, Neil Murray, Chrysoula K and Purpura (Greece), John McSherry, Donal O’Connor Trio (Ireland), as well as The Northern Folk, Reflejos, Gleny Rae Virus and her Playboys and Ego Lemos (Timor Leste).
Come have a taste of this years festival with two of our special acts:
The Fuelers come at you like a cross between a cereal box cowboy band and a TV gameshow scripted by Frank Zappa. Describing their swinging, hot-rodded brand of country as "char-grilled racing tunes and deep fried dieselbilly" might give you a snapshot of their act. From the roar of the rodeo ring to the lonely streets of loss, the Fuelers will take you there. BYO hat, spurs and parachute.
The son of an ex jazz trumpeter/dentist, David Ross Macdonald ditched geology to fail at jazz college, then took up washboard to join The Waifs over a Port Fairy Guinness. He fell in love with a 1935 Gibson guitar while touring the USA with Bob Dylan, which lead to him performing his grab-bag of songs and stories from the road less travelled but long toured. We’re sure he will explain a bit more himself.
Entry is free.
