Unusual Commoners

Saturday | Sunday

On a stone walled street corner in Oxford, England in 2016, three musicians were trying their hand at a newly learnt folk music repertoire. Busking in the late afternoon breeze, crowds came and went when a stately couple walked past and said aloud of the musicians, “what an unusual bunch of commoners” and on the fateful day The Unusual Commoners were born. 
Featuring Anthony FieldEmma Watkins and Lachlan Gillespie from The Wiggles alongside Oliver Brian and David O’Reilly, The Unusual Commoners play the music of The Clancy BrothersThe PoguesThe CorriesNeil DiamondJohn WilliamsonJohn Denver and traditional folk music. From sold out gigs in Newfoundland playing alongside Alan Doyle to playing gigs across Australia raising money for Soldier On, The Unusual Commoners are thrilled to playing for you here at Port Fairy Folk Festival. A special part of their appearance will be a brilliant collaborative concert with The East Pointers.
