For those who don't know, the festival
this year was hosted by the Central Australian Folk Society and we can
assure you that a great festival was enjoyed by all those who attended.
The venue was Ooraminna Bush Camp, 40km
south of Alice, which was also the site of Ted Egan's 'The Drover's Boy'.
The facilities included plenty of hot showers, toilets, camping ground
and crash pads under marquees. Swags were available for hire over the
weekend. Don't forget June is our winter and night-time temperatures can
drop to zero and below. So the fires were roaring and the port flowing.
All meals were included in the weekend
ticket price. As there were no shops etc close by. Vegetarians were catered
for so everyone was well fed.
The weekend ticket included the cost of
camping, concerts and workshops. Day and concert tickets were also available
Feature artists were Ted Egan (Alice),
Paul Stewart (Darwin). Phil Beck, Sean Roche and Fritz Fitton (all from
WA), Ted Burns from (QLD), Peter Bates and Tony Suttor (NT) ably assisting
him. Apologies to anyone I may have missed.

Until the next time...
