Thread Name: Ozcatters @ 2017 National Folk Festival?
Subject: RE: Ozcatters @ 2017 National Folk Festival?
I'll be there with the mighty Seņor Cabrales band of renown. We have performances on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Come and hear Asturian, Galician, Breton and some more predictable Scottish and Irish material. Give it a go! You'll love it.
I *facilitate* a Broadcasters Forum at the National each year for radio presenters, listeners, performers, record producers and anyone else interested in the folk music we hear on radio and, increasingly, on line. This year we'll meet in the Billy Moran Tent at 10.00am on Monday. Usually, the focus tends to be on the community broadcasting sector, but I suspect we'll also have a bit to say about ABC Radio National's recent scuppering of almost all it's music programming. (Insert expletive here!)
I hope to see lots of Catters at Easter.
