Each year, we present feature performances by students from local schools in our opening concert in the Village Marquee. This year the schools featured will be the Willunga Primary School students under the guidance of Dave Greenslade and also the Willunga Waldorf School under the direction of Allye Sinclair.. Be sure not to miss out!
||Fresh Folk Events
There will not be a separate Young Performers Marquee at the Festival this year but young acts will feature prominently at all Festival venues and we will be presenting a special Youth Concert in the Footy Club on the Saturday evening. Also, we will be negotiating with Folk Alliance Australia for the opportunity to nominate a promising young act at the 2015 Fleurieu Folk Festival to perform at youth showcase concerts at the 2016 National Folk Festival in Canberra.
