The Longford Town Hall will once again welcome the Festival of Small Halls into its doors with the 2019 event booked in for Wednesday 9 of January 2019. The 2019 event will see Fru Skagerrak (Nor/ Swe/ Den) and Australia's own Liam Gerner.
Fru Skagerrak takes you on a journey through Scandinavia; from lowlands to mountains, from slow airs to roaring polkas, and everything in between. Three master musicians from each of the Scandinavian countries – the result is an explosion of the sounds that exist in Scandinavian traditional music today.
Liam’s a 35 year old singer songwriter who has toured his story songs and played guitar for artists through Europe, USA and Australia including Ryan Bingham, Paul Weller, Jason Isbell, Robbie Fulks and more. He’s released two albums and a book of original songs ‘Ukulele Songs By Kids For Kids’.
The Festival of Small Halls is a series of tours produced by Woodfordia Inc in partnership with major festivals and local communities across regional Australia. It takes the best folk and contemporary acoustic artists performing at two large festivals and sends them on the road to tiny halls all over Australia. It’s an opportunity for music-lovers from welcoming communities to invite artists from home and abroad into their towns, and a way of exploring this vast country in the spirit of hospitality and great fun.
From our farmlands to the flood lands, the rainforests to the outback, Festival of Small Halls audiences can expect a beautiful night of original music, as well as a chance to catch up with their families and friends during a supper break, where cake and tea are served. It’s an all ages event and all are welcome.
Tickets are available on the following link or directly through Council Office at 13 Smith Street, Longford. **Tickets will also be available at the door on the night unless sold out prior.
