GREEN BUSHES PRESENTED BY SUNSHINE COAST CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL
Palmwoods Memorial Hall – 1 Main Street, Palmwoods QLD 4555
Enjoy a toe-tapping, energetic celebration of folk-infused music from Ireland, England, Australia, Denmark and Scandinavia. This concert speaks strongly of Artistic Director Louise King’s ancestral roots and her enduring love of English folk-songs originating from her childhood home county of Lincolnshire. The program traces how folk music travels continents in waves of human migration and pioneering spirit.
This family-friendly concert will showcase the diversity of our festival artists in accessible and catchy tuneful works by beloved Irish/Australian composer Percy Grainger, English pastoralist Vaughan-Williams and features our festival string quartet playing Nordic folk tunes from the chart-topping album Wood Works arranged by the Danish String Quartet.
The program also features First Nations composer Christopher Sainsbury’s work Grainger in Bourke St in a musical tribute to his enduring legacy to contemporary Australian music.
