While surfing the net today I noticed that the theme for the 2009 National Festival has been published.
The theme for the 2009 festival will feature South Australia, Natural Fibres and The Music of the Americas. This would appear to be great news for bluegrass fans.
The National Folk Festival has been a hub of folk arts in Australia for some 40 years. The Festival is a 5-day celebration of what makes our cultural life so strong and uniquely Australian – the music, songs, dances and spoken word that reflect the great waves of migration that flowed into a country already rich in Indigenous heritage.
