Tablelands Folk Festival Association is going all out to bring you a treat with these two fantastic acts on the same night.
Put June 25 in your diary for the TFF June Sessions featuring local banjo maestro Ben Wilson and the fabulous Jeanette Wormald Trio.
Born and raised on chalky southern shores of England, Ben ‘Banjo’ Wilson now resides in the great Northern Tablelands of QLD. Having played at festivals all over Australia, Wilson is well versed in the traditions of folk, old time and country blues. Originals and traditionals are accompanied by banjo, guitar, harmonica, and a voice that cuts like a knife through butter.
With five albums to her credit, Jeanette Wormald has won national and international radio airplay and critical acclaim for her voice and her original songs inspired by the Australian landscape.
“It was Jeanette’s voice that first turned my head. Her resonating truly Australian flavour encapsulates the Australian Bush and helps to tell stories showing a deep understanding and experience rare to storytellers. Not confined or restricted to a particular style, Jeanette’s obvious love of the Australian Outback from the red deserts to the lush rainforests, from the opalescent seas of the north to the rugged, scoured coastlands of the turbulent southern oceans come alive in passionate songs.” – MICK HODGKINS Tablelands Folk Festival
“Evocative lyrics and a beautiful melodic voice so clear you can hear every word…” – FIONA SEWELL, ABC FAR NORTH
Wormald is a story-teller. Her original songs, powerful stage presence and skilled musicians combine to take listeners on a musical journey through shades of folk, roots, jazz and blues into Australia’s heartland.
Joined by renowned Tablelands musicians’ Dave Hart on upright double bass and Paul Vandersar on lead guitar and harmony vocals, the trio delivers a quality performance.
Join us for a great night of music at the iconic Yungaburra Pub for the June 2022 Sessions.
