2012 Harrietville Program Line up

by | 3 Oct, 2012

The Harrietville Festival this year promises to be bigger than ever with a host of local and international bands scheduled for the weekend event. As usual the weekend will consist of  a series of afternoon and evening concerts, day-time vocal and instrumental workshops, supper shows, open mic stages, Sunday Gospel concert, structured jams for less experienced players and new starters, shape note singing and lots of informal picking sessions.

The Thursday night features a community concert with Bluegrass band – Audie Blaylock and Redline as well as an Old-time mountain square dance – with live music from our old-time USA guests – all dances taught and called – no experience needed.
