A Festival of Irish & Australian Music & the Related Arts
Celebrating significant connections between Ireland & Australia
The inaugural Turning Wave Festival will be held from Wed 13th to Sun 17th September 2006 in the historic township of Gundagai. While the Festival starts on the Wednesday, the majority of activity will take place from 5pm Friday till 7pm Sunday.
The title, “The Turning Wave” is taken from a poem by Colleen Z Burke and, an anthology of the same name compiled and edited by Colleen and Vincent Woods, and is used with the kind permission of the authors. This anthology is a collection of the poetry (and song) of Irish Australia, reflecting the strong Irish influence on Australian life. The Festival will celebrate Irish Australia through music, song, dance, spoken word, literature and theatre and will also feature a World Celtic festival fringe. Opportunities exist for concert performance, themed concerts, street performers, workshops and master classes, children’s presenters, dance, literature, poetry, storytelling, and theatre presentations.
