Chamber President, Mark Beech, and Brooke Bignall are delighted to announce that Rainbow Beach will host The Festival of Small Halls
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 local Brooke Bignall, they are stopping at Rainbow Beach!
Brooke took time out of work at Café Jilarty and the Maryborough Coffee Cart to broach the idea with the Rainbow Beach Chamber of Commerce and Tourism, who were right behind it.
“I am a regular at the Woodford Folk Festival and this is beyond exciting. Dates are still to be confirmed, but it is definitely happening!”
The main reason for Brooke’s excitement? “To bring all ages and our whole community together.”
Produced in partnership by the Woodford Folk Festival, Small Halls host at least one Australian artist and one international touring artist, who play music of exceptional quality and heart.
Audiences can expect a beautiful night of original music, as well as a chance to catch up with their families and friends.
The first tour took place in Autumn 2015 and received a wonderful response from audiences. Woodford Folk Festival producers are delighted to be able to send such high quality artists on the road into towns where communities really appreciate great music.
And Brooke is looking forward to, “A wonderful evening of folk tunes and laughter and chatter and nourishing community-driven celebrations.”
