The Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival happens in October every year. I've been going to (and also playing music at) this festival for a few years now. It just keeps me coming back. When last year rolled around I decided to film it - it's most definitely one of my favourite festivals. I've have never experienced the sense of musical intimacy you get at the Dorrigo festival - anywhere else - or maybe while jamming with close friends by a campfire! You bring your instruments and jam all night with the folks you just watched on stage - it's a festival like no other.

Dorrigo Mountain comes alive to the sounds of the finest traditional acoustic instruments and three part harmonies when the Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival rolls around each October. This intimate and friendly event features some of the very best folk, bluegrass and old-time country musicians from across Australia and overseas. Held within the picturesque Dorrigo Showground, the festival is renowned for its family feel and spontaneous musical collaborations both on and off the stage. Aside from musical concerts there are also workshops, dancing, jam sessions, impromptu performances, a festival choir, great food onsite and children’s entertainment.
