International act Vance Gilbert headlines the Festival of Small Halls with Liz Stringer, touring Rainbow Beach on December 10
The 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, and sends them on the road to tiny halls in communities all over Australia.
Thanks to Brooke Bignell and Rainbow Beach Commerce and Tourism, Rainbow Beach will host American folk raconteur Vance Gilbert, and acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Liz Stringer, in the Festival of Small Halls tour.
A Woodford Folk Festival regular, where the tour was born, Brooke can’t wait for the evening, “Liz Stringer is an amazing musician, and we are lucky enough to have her here for The Festival of Small Halls.”
And Vance Gilbert has released twelve albums and counts opening for soul legend Aretha Franklin among his many achievements.
To top it all off, ABC are recording the night – the only one of the 20 shows, here in Rainbow Beach!
To bring all ages and our whole community together, locals will be fed by a sporting group, enjoy a P&C dessert table, and other volunteers will preside over the cash bar.
A local kids’ band will open proceedings, so be sure to buy a ticket (or buy an early Christmas present for your family) and be there for a beautiful night of original music – 6.30pm start, $25 entry, light refreshments.
