Only five weeks to go until our favourite weekend in January!

The 2018 Cygnet Folk Festival will be the 36th festival: such longevity is in itself worth celebrating!!

As always we have a fabulous lineup of performers from all over this wonderful world.

There will be music, dance, spoken word and poetry, circus, comedy and cabaret, a full weekend of kids performances and activities, workshops and sessions and instruments on display: and of course great local food and drink to keep up your energy for a weekend of fun!
 
For 2018 we welcome performers from the USA, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Sicily, England, Ireland, Serbia, Japan and New Zealand as well as most Australian states and territories, including fabulous musical talent from allover Tasmania.

Masterclasses

The festival will once again kick off with our Friday masterclass series from 11am.

In 2018 our masterclass presenters are the legendary Bruce Molskey teaching Bluegrass Fiddle, Simone Pope, arguably Australia’s leading exponent and teacher of Flamenco dance, we welcome back Irish Joe Lynch with a brand new take on storytelling techniques and hints, APRA award winning songwriter Charles Jenkins will run a songwriting masterclass and Canadian Teresa Doyle will present the Yoga of Sound.

All masterclasses will be limited in size, so for $55 you get four hours of up close tuition with some of the finest!

Come along and make something beautiful or participate in interactive activities designed for little ones.

Under 5’s are free, so check the program in the middle of the booklet for performances especially for kids from our wonderful artists (children need to be accompanied by an adult).

The space will be supervised and programmed Saturday 13 January 10 AM – 6 PM and Sunday 14 January 10 AM – 4 PM

Young performer awards

Once again, we are conducting our youth blackboard competition on both Saturday and Sunday of the Festival.

If you are aged between 12 and 25 and would like to present a song (or tune) or two at the 2018 festival with the chance of winning some great prizes, including cash, studio recording time and the possibility of being nominated for the FAA youth performer awards at the National Folk Festival - then apply now!
With over a hundred acts over three wonderful days, this is truly just a taster. The printed programme will be out later in December but the full artist list is online now.
See you in Cygnet in January 2018!!
