No joke, it's a folk revival!
Ewan James was a founding member of the Nimbin Folk Club in the 1970s and was a regular at the fabulous Byron Vista Social Club at Ewingsdale Hall when that gig was running in the mid-noughties. He says he was getting tired of waiting for someone else to make something happen, so he decided to get proactive and initiate a new monthly folk club style gig called the Folk Revival.
The first gig was at Tuntable Hall last month and by all accounts was a resounding success.
The next one is on this Saturday, May 15, at the Nimbin Bush Theatre. Featuring ten acts including Renee English, Rebecca Ireland, Michael Fairley and Aquarius Festival troubadour Paul Joseph, it promises to be a delight for lovers of acoustic music.
“The Folk Revival will provide a stage and ultimately live recordings as a vehicle to promote established local songwriters and up and coming young talent,” Ewan said. It will be held in different venues around the region until the organisers find the most suitable home.
The cafe will open at 4pm and the show starts at 6pm. Entry is $10.
