The Festival of Small Halls is coming to Collins Creek Hall again this year on Sunday, 4 June as part of the NSW 2023 Resilience Tour.
The Collins Creek Hall concert is the last performance on this Tour and has two touring acts, Lucy Farrell (UK), and Hat Fitz and Cara (AUS).
Kent-born, Canada-based Lucy Farrell contemporary Elgish folk music combines unconventional melodies, poetic, sophisticated song-writing and bewitching clarity. Her voice is made elegant with sparse, careful accompaniment on tenor guitar and occasionally viola, carving out a unique niche for an artist at the forefront of contemporary English folk music. She has collaborated with Eliza Carthy and the Wayward Band, Gluepot, Modern Fairies, The Furrow Collective, Carthy, and Oates, Farrell and Young.
Joining Lucy is the high-energy duo Hat Fitz and Cara, who are among Australia’s most talented roots music artists. The husband and wife team have clocked up 14 years of worldwide touring, festival performances and album releases from their base in the hinterland of South East Queensland’s Sunshine Coast and are showing no signs of slowing down. Fitzy’s weathered vocals and soaring blues-soaked guitar combined with Cara’s pounding drums and soulful voice shows both of these multi-instrumentalists at the peak of their creative power.
The show will start at 4pm with doors open at 3.30pm and will conclude at approximately 6.30pm.
This is a ticketed, and Covid-Safe, seated event and all tickets will be sold online at https://festivalofsmallhalls.com/collinscreek-2023. Tickets cost $30 each.
There will be a raffle in support of the Hall and afternoon tea will also be available for $5. Event organisers would like to thank the Hall and sponsors, the Kyogle and District Arts Council.
