The iconic Tablelands Folk Festival has been running for 37 years. That’s pretty crazy when you think about it. (Ed Sheeran wasn’t even a twinkle) It’s probably been around longer than you have. It’ll probably still be going after you die. People probably like it more than they like you. All your friends are going, why not join them for a weekend of music, dancing and fun.

Tablelands Folk Festival Presents
Jasmin Chapman is a Singer/Songwriter from Far North Queensland who plays guitar and piano. She’s been playing music and singing for as long as she can remember.Her music has a wide range of genres from indie to folk, pop, country, cabaret, all the way to bluesy-rock. An eclectic range of songs include true stories, social comment, monsters under the bed, hate, love, clear buttons, war, childhood memories.
Things that make you mad, things that make you feel good and whatever happens to come to mind at the time when Jasmin is ‘pen in hand’, at her instruments (or in the grocery store…or the shower…or in the middle of the night!), and a belief there is something for everyone in her music.
Jasmin’s early years were filled with music from The Beatles, Keith Urban, John Farnham, The Mighty Reapers, ACDC, Missy Higgins, The Waifs, her Dad’s band practice nights, Kasey Chambers, Grace Knight, Flanders and Swan, The Hansons, Jim Croce, Billy Joel and Neil Young (just to name a few!). The 12 Bar Blues and Whiter Shade of Pale, along with Amazing Grace and Heart of Gold featured as rather huge influences in her musical life.
She has a strong love for live performance. Getting to see how an audience reacts to her music and the stories she has to tell is such a great experience. Jasmin comments “It also scares the breath out of me, but that only makes me love it even more!”
Jasmin Chapman will be on stage from 7.30 pm at the Yungaburra Hotel on Saturday August 26 as part of the Tablelands Folk Festival Yungaburra Sessions. Verandah Jam Session from 3 pm. All ages and stages welcome.
