Festival Details - "Mama Mihirangi & the Mareikura"...

First Nations In 2020 we are delighted to be celebrating the music of First Nations people, contemporary and traditional, Australian, Canadian, Timor Leste and New Zealand. The 44th Port Fairy Folk Festival will feature magnificent concerts by First Nation Australian artists Archie Roach joined by Paul Grabowsky and Sally Dastey, Benny Walker, Emily Wurramara, Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse along with international artists Ego Lemos (Timor Leste), Hubert Francis (Elsipogtog First Nation Elder of New Brunswick, Canada) and Maori artist Mihirangi Fleming with Mama Mihirangi & the Mareikura. We are also proud to be presenting a special concert, First Nations – Songs & Stories hosted by Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse. This event will explore, in conversation and in song, the similarities and differences of being a First Nation artist, the path to reconciliation and the role the arts and music can play in aspirations for the future. In the lead up to the festival there will be workshops with our local indigenous community and elders alongside Hubert Francis, Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse. To top off this first announcement, we are so happy that the Find Your Voice All Abilities Choir will return to our stages in 2020 after receiving a swag of accolades in the past weeks, including the Victorian Disability Awards prestigious Minister’s Award for Outstanding Leadership as well as two highly commended awards for their work with people with disability in the Barwon South West region, as well as their show stopping performance on national TV which was an internet sensation. The 2020 Festival will exemplify the great folk/roots traditions of many cultures, regions, communities and countries – from Ireland to Port Fairy, Johannesburg to New Orleans, Prince Edward Island to Northcote, Celtic to Bluegrass, Indigenous to Latin and glorious folk fusions. 2020 will once again be a splendid mix of brilliant music, great conversations, workshops, collaborations and surprises. For tens of thousands of years the Pyipgil Gunditj clan has gathered in ceremony on this country. For the past 43 years the Port Fairy Folk Festival has been celebrated each year in the land of the Pyipgil Gundji clans, in Peek Whurrong country. The Port Fairy Folk Festival pays their respects to elders past, present and emerging and acknowledges that the land we gather on each year for the Festival is the traditional lands of the Peek Whurrong people. Without further ado over to you to discover the first round announcements.
