Rock Pop

It’s been said that the distance between folk and rock is the distance between the instrument and the amplifier. Here, ‘between the Rock and a Heart Place’ we don’t concern ourselves too much with labels, instead taking great pleasure in annually creating a six-day community of artists we love. Though their styles are diverse, they share a commonality, a festivility, lighting a path with their words, their ways or their music. Whether sitting among an audience of thousands or discovering your newest favourite artist in a tiny venue for 35, you’ll bounce between a plethora of acoustic, electric, political, topical, beautiful, solo, big band, award-winning or least renowned, new, tide-riding or returning artists who worship with you under the broader banner of folk – the broadest of churches. “All music” says Louis Armstrong “is folk music. I ain’t never heard a horse sing a song.”

  1. I’ve just seen BluGuru at the Rainforest World Music Festival #rwmf2022 – spectacular main stage show and workshops. Remembered seeing them at Woodfordia years back as part of Andrew Clermont’s Supper Club at Bill’s Bar (always a favourite).
    Now my fingers are crossed they will be on the Woodfordia program this year.
