Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival | Photos

Traffic was at a crawl through Kangaroo Valley as drivers searched for parking spots at one of the village’s most anticipated events on the calendar.

The weather turned out fine, and everywhere you looked across the showground there was some form of entertainment.

The folk festival had some fascinating displays, live entertainment and workshops.

There were wood-carving workshops, and workshops where kids were able to fashion jewellery out of straws.

Kids danced around a maypole, coordinated by a musically-talented group with accordions and tambourines.

The marquees, where folk musicians played throughout the day and into the night, were a place of solace for many there to relax.

Around 50 acts played across three days, and many performers camped at the showgrounds throughout the festival.

It was the valley’s 12th annual folk festival, well-attended, particularly on Saturday when the weather cleared.

Live performers include 19-Twenty, Fred Smith Trio, The Northern Folk, Den Hanrahan and the Rumrunners, Paul Greene & The Other Colours, Roaring Forties, Mal Webb and Kylie Morrigan, Low Down Riders, Giffen, The Sauerkrauts, Luke O'Shea, Appalachian Heaven StringBand, Rosie Burgess Trio, The Trippy Hippy Band, Jack n Jel, Chloe & Jason Roweth, 500 Pounds of joy, Zumpa, Lizzie Flynn & The Reckoning, Montgomery Church and The Water Runner.s
