This March a brand new event will be bringing folk music to the inner western suburbs of Sydney and it looks pretty exciting. The brand new Summer Hill Folk Festival is set to take place at the Summer Hill Church on Saturday 5th March.
The line-up for the festival is impressive, bringing together some of Sydney’s best folkies and plenty of favourites including Pat Drummond, Catgut, Brian Campeau, Fanny Lumsden, The Tawny Owl String Band and many more.
The day kicks off at 10am and along with the music program there will be artisan markets for punters to peruse. And all of this is for free.
