The popular Festival of Small Halls returns to Rainbow Beach from 6.30pm on Saturday 10 December 2022 with Inn Echo and Sam Buckingham.
Festival of Small Halls is a series of tours that takes the best folk and contemporary acoustic artists performing at two of our country’s largest festivals – Queenscliff Music Festival and Woodford Folk Festival – and sends them on the road to tiny halls in communities all over Australia.
It’s an opportunity for music-lovers from welcoming communities to invite artists from home and abroad into their towns, and a way of exploring this vast country in the spirit of hospitality and great fun.
Full Admission – $15
Child Admission (Aged 16 and Under – Must Be Accompanied By Adult) – $0
Purchase online at www.festivalofsmallhalls.com or directly from the Rainbow Beach Community Centre office.
Rainbow Beach Community Centre has accessible entry (ground floor) and has accessible bathrooms (wheelchair access).
Canadian celtic fusion band Inn Echo weave hundreds of years of traditional tunes with contemporary originals and arrangements that both soar and make you catch your breath simultaneously. With technical precision, their mastery of instruments is the talk of the national and international folk music scene.
Hailing from the Northern Rivers of NSW, Sam Buckingham is the perfect balance of poetry and pop. Listen to any track on her new album DEAR JOHN and you’ll instantly be hooked and singing along. Pay attention to the lyrics, and you’ll be uplifted by the potent and honest songwriting from this deeply moving wordsmith.
