Joshie’O Show – Kasey Chambers Interview

23 July 2018

I must say Kasey is one of the most kind hearted and beautiful people I have ever met. Her music speaks truth and shows emotion which is relatable. Nothing will ever top that experience. Part of me just wanted to jump on that tour bus just to be able to listen to her sing. I also stayed around after the interview for her campfire tour and I have never heard an artist have vocals as good or as better than as Kasey does. She’s an inspiration and I cannot wait to see what is to come. Also make sure you check out her campfire album. My favorites are the campfire song, Early Graves and Go on your way. I suggest trying to see her live if it’s not sold out near you because you won’t regret it

Woodford Folk Festival 27 Dec 2016 – 1 Jan 2017

30 November 2016

Woodford Folk Festival is Australia’s largest annual not-for-profit arts and music festival of its kind, gathering together more than 2000 artists, musicians and presenters in more than 400 acts, across 25 venues to an est. audience of 120,000 people. The Festival showcases the depth and diversity of Australia’s cultural, artistic and social expression with music, dance, cabaret, circus, comedy, workshops, debate, street theatre, films, forums, visual arts, an entire children’s festival and many special presentations, including a spectacular Fire Event on New Year’s Day.
After a dedicated year of redesigning the organisation from its original structure of a regional folk club, Queensland Folk Federation, the producers of Woodford Folk Festival and The Planting have reformed as Woodfordia Inc., an organisation dedicated to the 500 acre property that hosts the festivals in Queensland. Having retained and expanded community roots, they have created a not-for-profit organisation with a membership structure open to the Australian and International public.
The Woodford festival experience is deep, rich and colourful – a veritable feast for the senses. It is based on the vision of an inclusive and creative community, which fosters the growth of cultures and traditions through generations and is expressed through story and ceremony. This is exemplified by the large-scale spectacle theatre at the Welcome Ceremony, and the Festival’s flagship closing ceremony, The Fire Event.

The Festival’s home, Woodfordia, is a one hour drive north-west of Brisbane. The 500 acre property has been developed into a cultural parkland dedicated to the arts, humanities and lore. Woodfordia has infrastructure to accommodate a live-in population of 25,000 people and has been lovingly regenerated with over 100,000 subtropical rainforest trees, orchids, ferns and sedges planted to create habitat for butterflies and wildlife. As many as 2700 volunteers across 140 departments are at the heart of the organization and contribute to the setup and day-to-day running of the festival.
