The Cygnet Folk Festival is one of Australia’s most iconic folk music festivals. Very highly regarded by musicians and festival-goers from all over Australia and overseas, competition to come to Cygnet is at an all time high amongst performers, and last year we had a record number of applications! The Festival is a showcase of eclectic music genres featuring both local and international talent, dance, poetry, masterclasses, film, kids’ entertainment, food, wine, art and local handicrafts all set in the breathtaking scenery of Tasmania’s Huon Valley.
Returning to Cygnet Folk Festival is one of our most loved artists Wallis Bird. This amazing performer filled our largest venues in 2017 and her career has been nothing but incredible since! Wallis is an artist who is willing to challenge herself, taking her audience along on a ride that spans genres – folk, pop and electronica to name a few. “Bird’s inventive confidence stems from working on the fringes of alternative pop for 15 years, exploring angular areas of music with style and passion. The result is this impressive work which finds the artist at her most sophisticated, experimental, and at times danceable.” – American Song Writer.
