In the midst of the Moreton Bay region, there is the 500-acre Woodford Folk Festival. It is considered as a hidden treasure of South-East Queensland. The site is conveniently an hour’s drive from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Here you will discover cool swimming holes, pristine beaches that line the many islands found in Moreton Bay.
Each year, more than 2,600 volunteers help transform the 500-acre festival site at Woodfordia into a fully functioning pop-up town the size of a regional centre like Lismore – and some of the more unusual jobs to help make it all happen are still up for grabs!
Tucked away just inside the Woodford Folk Festival’s Welcome Gate, hidden in plain sight, is the Children’s Festival – a separate space dedicated to the amusement and entertainment of children under 12.
I had just finished the first of three performances at the 2017/18 Woodford Folk Festival, and while the question wasn’t put to me quite so prosaically, a number of others made the same enquiry. Although one much younger bloke, who I am sure immediately felt rather apologetic, asked, “Who are you?” I haven’t played Woodford in well over 20 years and coming back after so long would certainly have prompted that question from those who knew nothing of my music and had never seen me perform until they happened upon my sets in the Garland.
Late last November at Woodford I was casually discussing a technique Laura Stocker and I had developed to add depth and colour to our community surveys. It’s a process where interviews are recorded on video but there is no voice over: the interviewees responses create the overall narrative. We call it ‘VideoVoice’.
