I should have mentioned above, that we had just taken part at said festival, in one of Paul Stewart's famed presentations (he's "Stewie" of Mudcat fame), entitled "The Devil's Bargain (Mining Songs from North America)".
Stewie has a long history of producing fabulous "themed presentations" at various festivals around the country, which make for great entertainment AND dissemination of knowledge / history / songs / poetry / prose AND an interesting variety of performers.
[ IMHO, better than just a straight concert of an artist any day and befitting of a "Folk Festival"!! ]
Nowadays, he mostly presents at the Georgetown (Tasmania) and the Top Half (Northern Territory) festivals in Australia.
