TABLELANDS FOLK FESTIVAL 2019
This year's Tablelands Folk Festival runs from October 25-27 in the township of Yungaburra and has strong focus on encouraging and supporting the development of music, theatre skills, circus skills, poetry and storytelling. Predominantly, over the years, this has been achieved through workshops across the Tablelands with the assistance of Regional Arts Development Grants via Tablelands Regional Council. Many have benefited from these workshops.
We are keen to "Shine a Light" on our talented local youth and we invite North Queensland schools to participate in the 2019 festival in a performance capacity.
Two venues will be made available this year, the TAFE Youth Stage located within our Children's Festival area and the Yungaburra Community Hall suited to School Bands and Orchestras.
Time frames are flexible but we are aiming to incorporate most school performances on Saturday, October 26 and envisage a maximum of 45 minutes performance time per school.
We invite schools to lodge an Expression of Interest any time from now to the end of August. Go to the Festival website tablelandsfolkfestival.org.au Please include a short description of the type of performance your school would like to include in our 2019 program.
This type of performance opportunity encourages students to take their talents and hard work to the next level, creates opportunities to interact with professionals, and builds community spirit by being a part of this annual community event.
We are very pleased to be working with REACH (Regional Excellence in Arts and Culture Hubs) on the coordination of this project. Looking forward to hearing from local school in the near future.
Singly, their music stands alone but collaboratively a whole new element comes into being. Harmonious, joyous, the sage and the student embrace the stage as their own.
Janggaburru Sessions is brought to you by the Tablelands Folk Festival and the Yungaburra Hotel.
Catch the Band at the Tablelands Folk Festival Saturday May 25 Janggaburru Sessions at the Yungaburra Pub from 7.30 pm. Don’t forget the Folk Music Jam Session on the pub verandah from 3 pm.
