Tablelands Folk Festival Presents

Janggaburru Sessions

The Kroovs were formed in the hot, sweaty jungle of Far North Queensland in 2014 and have forged a path for themselves throughout the area in recent years.

A celebration of all things folk and blues, The Kroovs will take you from the brumby plains of the southern highlands, to a boozer in the hills of Donegal, sail you into the smugglers coves in Cornwall before dumping you on a dusty verandah rocking chair in Virginia to rock away your musical woes.

A high energy duo, featuring fiddle, mandolin, guitar, flute and drums playing songs ranging from piracy, whisky, cowboys, gypsies, cocaine, love and murder.

The Kroovs feature at the Janggaburru Sessions from 7.30 pm.

Don’t forget the folk music verandah jam session from 3 pm.

Janggaburru Sessions: Yungaburra Pub Saturday June 23

The Sessions are brought to you by Tablelands Folk Festival held annually in the Township of Yungaburra.

This year’s Festival Dates October 26-28.  Bringing you magic through music.
