YACKANDANDAH’S sell-out 19th annual Folk Festival last weekend put music into the streets of the historic town.
The festival has grown from a one-day event in 1998 to what is now a three-day smorgasbord of music, food and entertainment.
It hosts local and international performers, workshops, buskers, markets and many street activities and the note-making line-up included Yackandandah’s four-time Tamworth Country Music Festival ‘Golden Guitar’ winner Pete Denahy.
Festival patrons this year were also able to download a new app developed by volunteers from Melbourne digital agency Papercloud.
It enabled festival-goers to check the program, read performer biographies and find their way to Yackandandah’s numerous venues.
