The Global Sounds of Bluegrass

Sunday Stage 1 11:30am – 1:00pm

Bluegrass has its roots steeped in the rich tradition of American folk music and it underpins much of the great folk music that delights us in the 21st century. In keeping with the universality of folk music, artists from around the world put their own stamp on Bluegrass as a way of telling their stories. In 2018 The Port Fairy Folk Festival is delighted to be presenting the Global Sounds of Bluegrass and showcasing outstanding artists of this form featuring 10 String Symphony, The Brothers Comatose, The Davidson Brothers and special guests.

Host: Felicity Urquhart

The Port Fairy Folk Festival would like to acknowledge the generous support of the United States Consulate General Melbourne who, via their grants program, acknowledge the Port Fairy Folk Festival and the role it plays in celebrating the rich tradition of American Folk music and showcasing outstanding American Folk artists to Australian audiences.
