Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival


Now in it’s 17th year the Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival continues to deliver an outstanding programme of inspiring musicians from across the globe.

We are passionate about delivering a festival where performers and patrons alike can share their love of music, whether at a concert, workshop or just sharing a tune or conversation in the shade. Our second Old Time Music School runs for three days leading up to the festival and gives participants the opportunity to learn firsthand from tutors who have learnt from the masters. This year we welcome some amazing Bluegrass and Old Time players from The States, Brilliant young Scottish band Dosca, collaborations from Canada and Sweden, innovative instrumentalists from Austria.  A young inspirational band from New Zealand and plenty of brilliant players from across Australia.
