Festival of small halls
tour international and
Canadian folk powerhouses The
Small Glories and Australian singer-
songwriter Claire Anne Taylor kick off
the Festival of Small Halls Summer
Tour 2018 this month, and the gifted
musicians are counting down the days.
They will play at Dalgety Hall on
Thursday January 25. The evening will
start with a barbecue at 6pm, followed
by the performance.
“If I had to choose, I would play in
regional towns rather than big cities,
every time,” said touring artist Claire
“Playing shows in regional places
makes me feel more connected with
my audience, and I love the way that
there is more opportunity for talking
with locals and getting a feel for the
“This kind of intimacy and
connection is rare in big cities.”
“Our inaugural tour of Tasmania
was in 2016, and the reception was
beyond anything we expected,”
said Festival of Small Halls Producer
“We’re anticipating quite a few sold
out shows,” she said.
The touring party will travel 1200
kilometres across regional Tasmania,
including a showcase at partner
festival Cygnet Folk Festival.
Then it’s onto Sydney, kicking off
a journey of over 3000 kilometres
through regional NSW at partner
festival Illawarra Folk Festival.
“The route is absolutely incredible,”
said Ms Rigden.
“If you look at it on a map, the tour
covers half of the eastern side of
The quality of the much- loved
regional music tour continues to shine
through this latest musical offering.
“Claire Anne Taylor won the
Bluesfest Buskers Competition a
few years ago – she hadn’t even
performed for anyone since leaving
high school,” said Ms Rigden
“Folks get serious for that
opportunity – the elbows come out,
but by all accounts, Claire Anne just
blew everyone away.”
Newly-formed Canadian act The
Small Glories are a duo who could
almost make you believe in fate.
winner Cara Luft (the Wailin’ Jennies)
and JD Edwards (The JD Edwards
Band), already have a dozen critically
acclaimed albums to their names.
“They were actually thrown together
by chance,” Eleanor said.
“A festival was pairing up artists who
didn’t really know each other, or hadn’t
played together, to play a song neither
had performed before,” said Eleanor.
“We started rehearsing together,
and there was a moment when
I realized this was what I’d been
dreaming of and longing for for years;
the way our voices fit together was
incredible,” recalls Cara.
“I’m pretty sure I actually screamed
‘Holy s**t!’ from excitement.”
It’s not just the remarkable voices
that fit together in this carefully crafted
“’Harmony’ is probably the word that
springs to mind when thinking about
this tour”, said Eleanor.
“The voices, the (impending)
friendships, the Halls – everything just
fits together perfectly,” she said.
The Festival of Small Halls is a
unique regional touring concept,
working with community groups and
regional councils across Australia to
take some of the best international and
national music into rural and remote
areas of Australia.
