Ravenswood Hotel Folk Festival a perfect way to while away a summer day

WHAT better way to spend a summer Saturday than relaxing by the river under the shady trees of the historic Ravenswood Hotel at a free folk festival.

The Ravenswood Hotel Folk Festival next Saturday, January 13 features a range of talent including Dan Horne, the Justin Walshe Folk Machine, More Didge Brothers, Simon Marks, Ashlea Reale and Adam Boddy.

Dan Horne is an English-born Australian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

His music is an unmistakeable blend of folk, blues and roots.

Horne began his musical performances on the streets and has an incredible talent for multi-tasking using multiple instruments including foot percussion, harmonica and vocals to create an energetic sound that draws the crowds wherever his location.

The Justin Walshe Folk Machine mixes the best elements of folk, blue grass and Americana into a unique sound “filtered through the dead dry and arid WA sense of humour at the core of their work in a heaving acoustic storm of blue grass instruments spun around impeccable story telling”.
