We’ve given you lots of sneak peeks into the programme for 2017, but this is one worth waiting for!! Irish music Legend & inspiration to the generations that have followed him, Andy Irvine (Planxty, Patrick Street) & mandolin maestro Luke Plumb (Shooglenifty) have teamed up to tour together for the first time. These concerts will showcase two masters of their craft.

The Festival Needs You!

Perhaps just as importantly, you become part of the fabulous team that make this event possible, get to mingle with other wonderful, generous people & earn the undying appreciation of …well everyone at the Festival!!! Apply here.

Become A Billet Host

If you’re a Cygnet local, we are still needing billets for some of our wonderful performers. Billet hosts are offered a free weekend ticket to the Festival & get the chance to meet some truly wonderful musicians who come to this wonderful part of the world each January.

Those of you that do host artists are truly appreciated!! Each year we get great feedback from performers about the generosity of hosts & the beauty of Cygnet and surrounds! If you are in walking distance to Cygnet central, or within 20 minute's drive, we want to hear from you! More here.


Our masterclasses are selling well; great value at only $50 for four hour's tuition with top proponents of their craft, more here.
