DFBG Side Art1 800h CWe welcome old and new Festival patrons to Dorrigo Mountain for an intimate and friendly three-day weekend of acoustic music featuring some of the very best Folk and Bluegrass and Old-Time country musicians from around Australia and overseas.

It's a time when our picturesque Dorrigo showground comes alive with concerts, workshops, dancing, jamming, impromptu performances, poetry and children's entertainment.

The 2015 14th Annual Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival is shaping up to be one of the best yet - with an exceptional line-up and some new surprises in store. Each year we aim to improve on the last, and this year the overseas line-up will include The Andrew Collins Trio (Canada), and also  the return of Chris Henry and The Hardcore Grass (USA, NZ, AUS).

Fresh Dorrigo mountain weather, a wonderful atmosphere, an outstanding line-up and responsive crowds all combine to make it one of the most highly regarded events on the Australian festival circuit - big enough to draw world-renowned artists, yet relaxed, intimate and accessible enough to be known as "a Great Little Festival".

As well as the Main Pavillion Stage, the recently renovated Luncheon Pavillion Stage, and the "Tallowood Venue", we will also have the Pitts Family "Mini Big Top" Circus Tent Venue, allowing for more intimate acoustic performances, and more "blackboard spot" opportunities.

The Festival kicks off on Friday night with a foot-stomping Community HoeDown Dance in the Main Pavilion. In keeping with being a family friendly event, tickets for the Community Hoe-Down Dance are only $25 for a family.

Upcoming Concerts in Dorrigo

 Buffalo Nickel PosterOn Saturday 9th May, Buffalo Nickel will be performing at Megan Hall as part of their East Coast Tour.

Buffalo Nickel is a wonderful collaboration between three of Australia’s finest young Bluegrass pickers, George Jackson, Daniel Watkins and Paddy Montgomery.
Grounded in tradition, the boys bring a wealth of experience to the stage displaying their passion for acoustic music. They bring with them a long friendship and musical fellowship through which they have explored many genres of music which is evident when they pick up their instruments.
All three are involved with many different projects , taking them out on the road performing and the opportunity to come together as Buffalo Nickel is indeed a rare chance to see some amazing talent. Expect to hear some incredible fiddle, mandolin, guitar and banjo instrumentation from these young men with some great vocals to boot.
