Thanks to everyone for a fantastic festival. Save the date for 2020 – March 20 to 22
St James Uniting Church, located in Hammond St behind the Yackandandah Public School, is by far our oldest venue. Being a church, you can imagine how good the acoustics will be so it’s well worth checking out during the festival this year. It will seat about 100 thereby creating an intimate setting to experience your new favourite artist.
In yet another progression on the journey to a truly low-impact
festival, this little number is under construction by local sculptor, Agency
of Sculpture. It will be installed by Indigo Shire this week next to the
Court House venue.
Temporary festival water points are giving way to purposeful pieces
of art. Please bring your own bottle and enjoy the local natural vintage!!
The Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) will be represented at this year’s festival. An ABA volunteer-staffed Feed and Change space will be provided at “Ardsville”, the historic house which is set back from the road and located in High Street on the corner of Wellsford St in Yackandandah on Sunday March 24th from 10am until 4pm. They will provide a quiet and comfortable area for mothers and their families to take a break. Tea and coffee, toilet facilities and a change table will be available.
The ABA is a National service, run entirely on a volunteer basis, providing breastfeeding information and support to families. You can get information about their local groups and upcoming events here https://www.facebook.com/abaalburywodonga/
The updated 2019 Yackandandah Folk Festival App is now available on the Apple App Store
and Google Play Store.
Yackandandah Folk Festival is very pleased to announce the return of Nicky Bomba. Nicky loves Yackandandah and his first appearance was well before his days as drummer with the John Butler Trio and leader of famed outfit, The Melbourne Ska Orchestra. Nicky always provides excellent bang for your festival buck. He is guaranteed to get you out of your seat and dancing like no one’s watching! Nicky Bomba will be performing twice over the weekend, playing The Public Hall at 8.30pm Friday night and in The Marquee at 8pm Saturday night. Both performances are bound to be popular so best make note of them so you don’t miss out seeing one of our most dynamic performers live.
