Reimag­in­ing our halls

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

THE Fes­ti­val of Small Halls, run by the team be­hind the Wood­ford Folk Fes­ti­val, will come back to Eudlo on one of the largest tours the coun­try has seen.

Fes­ti­val man­ager Eleanor Rig­den said much of the tour was about bring­ing soul back to the beau­ti­ful old build­ings.

“We wanted to en­able com­mu­ni­ties to present their own mu­sic in their own spa­ces,” she said. “It was a place where peo­ple were mar­ried, had Satur­day night dances, where Santa came to visit and kids played to­gether. It was the cen­tre of their so­cial life, so we pro­duced a prod­uct the com­mu­nity is proud of.”

Along­side tour­ing acts Old Man Luedecke from Canada and Aus­tralia’s Lucy Wise will be lo­cal artist Jackson Vil­lani.

Eudlo is the fi­nal stop on the Sum­mer 2018 tour next Sun­day.
