The Gulgong Folk Club held the Gulgong Folk Festival in December. Although Gulgong was sweltering through a heat wave it did not deter the “folkies” from flocking to Gulgong to enjoy the sounds of some of Australians must accomplished musicians.
Judging by the reaction of the 100 plus crowd who attended the concert at the Gulgong RSL Club to hear the headliners “Highlander Celtic Rock Band” and “Sancha and the Blue Gypsies” perform they were not disappointed.
Musicians performed in most venues all over town during the three days of the festival. Apart from the music two Poets breakfasts, a Henry Lawson poetry recital, an Environmental Concert and a Steinway Piano recital in the Prince of Wales Opera House were held with good crowds attending each performance.
The Gulgong Folk Club were delighted with the outcome of the festival and are now at work looking at making the 2019 Folk Festival an even larger event.
