With a rep as one of the best boutique festival experiences around, the 6th annual Mullum Music Festival has announced a typically eclectic and colourful line-up of international, national and local acts for music lovers to enjoy in the quaint halls, pubs, clubs and streets of the funky little Northern NSW town of Mullumbimby.
Just some highlights include Mexican born blind singer & guitarist Raul Midon (US), who has collaborated with Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, and Bill Withers and is described by the NY Times as “a one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus.” The surprise hit of last years Sydney Festival, Barefoot Divas featuring Helpmann Award winner Ursula Yovich (Serbia/Burarra), Whirimako Black (Maori), Maisey Rika (Maori), Merenia (Maori/Roma/Gypsy) and Ngaiire (Papua New Guinea) come together for two special encore performances of their inspirational show ‘Walk a Mile In My Shoes. Melbourne cult heroes The Basics (Wally De Backer, Kris Schroeder, Tim Heath) will finally get some time together to play some sweaty rock n roll at Mullum Festival while Blue Grassy Knoll also step out from the international arts festival circuit to do two rare live performance to Buster Keaton’s ‘The General’. Midwestern folk poetess Pieta Brown will team up with Australian singer/guitarist Lucie Thorne as harmony rich outfit ‘Love Over Gold’ while festival favourites Tinpan Orange, Mama Kin, Jordie Lane, Sal Kimber and Jo Jo Smith will no doubt pack out venues with happy punters.
