Folk@Canowindra has presented a wide range of quality music this year, both in our feature acts and our open mic spots. Last month included some very enjoyable music from the likes of J-L Rathbone, Sophie Payten, Sophie’s young cousin Leo Payten (another exciting up and coming musician from the Payten family) and more! This coming Sunday, Oct 26th, 4-6pm, we will get together at taste Canowindra for our second last gathering of the year. Everyone is welcome, entry is by donation, and any enquiries or open mic acts should contact Nerida Cuddy on 0429 048 603.
We are so happy to be able to officially welcome a couple of new musicians to this area, by enjoying their talents as our feature act this Sunday. They have moved to a small town outside of Canowindra from the north coast of NSW. Original song writer Blair Gough met ukelele player Simone D’Elboux quite some time back, and now after ten years of marriage and two children, they are performing as “Chalk n Chestnuts”. Desire, big dreams, anguish, betrayal, love, hope and forgiveness, are some of the themes of Chalk n Chestnuts’ originals, featuring acoustic guitar, ukelele, harmonica and percussion. Blair and Simone, both of former bands, love playing their heartfelt originals to music lovers. Organic fresh from the farm to you!
