Quite a few of the guests appearing at the Maleny Music Festival this weekend have also played in our loungeroom over the last year or two. Cloudstreet, Fred Smith, Sadie & Jay, Tin Star, Karen Law Band and Steve Tyson (who brought along some of his comrades from Rough Red) are among those on the festival bill. We also welcome back Jenny Fitzgibbon from her world travels and, not to forget, we are doing a gig too.
The Goodwills with guest musician Helen Rowe play the Tibrogargan Stage on Saturday at 1.10pm. Laurel and I are also taking part in the Concert for Refugees on Saturday night in the same venue. The festival starts at the Maleny Showgrounds on Friday evening with a Welcome to Country and continues until Sunday afternoon, with a finale concert at 3.45pm with Zumpa. This is our third festival and we feel privileged to vie for the title of elder statespeople of folk!
