National Woodford Folk Festival Broadcasts 2015

mwalters, 31st December 2015

The Woodford Folk Festival is celebrating its 30th anniversary, at what is now become known as “Woodfordia”. Every summer from 27 December to 1 January, this festival becomes the hub for people of all ages who make their annual pilgrimage or about to discover a world unknown to newcomers. Just one hour north of Brisbane, this six-day long celebration of ceremony, community, art, culture and of course the variety of music has special significance this year in its reflection of the past three decades and the future development of the site and program.

From 4ZZZ and 4EB we present the very best of the 30th Woodford Folk Festival, with three hour-long specials available for local broadcast through the Community Radio Network.
