National Folk Festival Canberra 2008

I have returned from the National Folk Festival here in Canberra with a notebook full of tune names and a camera full of images. Great session, great concerts and a fabulous meeting of old friends – some of whom I hadn’t seen in twenty years!

Highlights were:

  • the Vin Garbutt, Genticorum and Trouble in the Kitchen concerts;
  • getting up close and personal with a nyckelharpa
  • playing sessions with Bob McInnes and Scott and Louisa Wise and Chris Duncan
  • my Full Circle concert at the Merry Muse (maybe they’ll hire us next time?)
  • playing a Dave Guscott violin – and buying Octave Violin strings
  • the positive reactions I got to my pochette fiddle; and
  • playing music with such wonderful people and meeting old friends

You can read the full write-up on my other blog – Fourstrings
