FAIRBRIDGE FESTIVAL SHOWCASE
Sunday 7 April 2024, 4pm-10pm @ Fremantle Arts Centre

This is an All Ages event.

Experience the quality and range of international and interstate acts booked to perform at the recently cancelled 2024 Fairbridge Festival.

Featuring an exceptional line-up of touring folk and world musicians, including:

HIMMERLAND DK
Himmerland is a quality quartet that composes new music infused with a blend of rich traditions. With members from Scandinavia and Scotland, Himmerland connects different cultures, stories, and musical styles featuring Eskil Romme on soprano sax (Denmark), Jens Ulvsand on bouzouki and vocals (Sweden), Donald Hay on drums (Scotland), and Ditte Fromseier on violin and vocals (Denmark).

GORDIE TENTREES & JAXON HALDANE CAN
Gordie Tentrees and Jaxon Haldane, from Canada, have performed over a thousand concerts in 11 countries since releasing their debut album "GRIT" in 2018. Winners of the 2023 International Acoustic Music Award, they have headlined many festivals worldwide including Celtic Connections (UK), Woody Guthrie Folk (USA), National Folk Festival (AUS). They juggle beautiful brotherly harmonies with darkness and light, masterful storytelling, and an impressive array of acoustic instrumentation.
"Majestic songwriting, incredible insight, genuine authenticity." Americana UK
"Organic and holistic folk, this is the wild sound of freedom.” Midwest Record, USA

SHARK & FOX
(Emily-Rose Sarkova NSW & Jaron Freeman-Fox CAN)
An irresistible Australian-Canadian collaboration, with Emily-Rose Sarkova and Jaron Freeman-Fox, that weaves together the shared history of fiddle and accordion music and shape-shifts between tradition and innovation. Their instruments transform from fiddle to fretless guitar, accordion to synthesiser, driven by infectious rhythms of frenetic Bulgarian dances, haunting Appalachian tunes, Swedish polkas, and Irish jigs and reels.

JOEL SALOM NSW & TRISTAN CHIPOLATA UK
Joel Salom’s juggling and mad skills are world-class. He and his robotic dog Erik received the Australia's Got Talent Golden Buzzer! Joel recently joined The Chipolatas, Fairbridge Festival’s favourite old-school clown pirates over three decades, and will perform some fun sets of awesome frivolity with Tristan ‘Chipolata’.

PETER CAPP NSW
Poet and raconteur, Peter Capp is known across the land for his hilarious poems and yarns that reflect our Aussie culture with humour and pathos. ‘Cappie’ performs his new folklore bush ballad about Fairbridge Festival’s rich 30-year history.

Onsite bar and food trucks available.
