3BBR-FM was there for the jubilant return of the multi-award winning Boolarra Folk Festival, recording every concert for Gippsland Live, our weekly showcase of local live performances.
After a three year hiatus, thousands of people flocked to Boolarra in early March for the festival, a completely free community event held at ARC Yinnar on the Friday night, and in Railway Park in Boolarra throughout Saturday.
Gippsland Live (heard weekly from April) began broadcasting concerts from the festival on April 12, featuring the headline act from the Friday night event, local Steely Dan aficionados Doit Doit . Gutsy blues singer/guitarist Anna Scionti, and brilliant virtuoso guitarist Nick Charles are just a couple of the many acts to follow in subsequent programs.
“The performances were great and we appreciate the help of the Festival and the performers in allowing us to share the joy and musicianship on show,” said producer Garry Havrillay, “We’re also thrilled to be able to give these under-represented and emerging artists a chance to be heard more widely.”
Tune in to 103.1FM on Wednesday nights at 8.00pm, stream online via 3bbrfm.org.au or the Community Radio Plus App, or listen later via our audio-on-demand service at https://3bbrfm.org.au/programs/gippsland-live.
