As much as it breaks our Folkie hearts to announce this, this year's Blues' N' Roots Festival will not proceed.
The risks associated with the current COVID-19 situation and possible last-minute cancellation pose a significant threat to the financial stability of our organisation.
We would like to thank all of the artists who were booked to play, the production team, stall holders and our volunteers for committing to this years festival.
We will email anyone who has booked a ticket regarding refunds.
Take care and we will see you in 2022!!!

Don't forget folks, we're relying on the internet in regional Australia and as you can imagine, eftpos facilities are sketchy at best so; if you're intending on purchasing any of the wonderful street food, clothing or any other treats...bring cash.
Our festival is a little smaller this year thanks to the "c" word, but we still have two blackboard sessions and three workshops at the Jam Tin.
So, if you want to share your talent with the Palm Creek tribe, and maybe not be up for the songwriting comp, then be brave and put your name on the blackboard...it's a great opportunity, everyone welcome, you don't have to be Neil Young!
We have three great workshop opportunities - get intimate with Ray Smith and Tim Bennett and their array of magic tradition instruments, come see Andrew Clermont share his broad talent with mandolin, fiddle and guitar and the wonderful Legends of Perhaps will host a brilliant insight into songwriting for children.
Check the programme and don't miss out!
Hey folks, some shyster has been trying to skim details from Palm Ck ticket holders.
He goes by the name "John Hampson" (obviously not his real name).
Please do not enter into any communications with this person or any other scammer on Facebook.
All Palm Ck tickets are accounted for and your details are secure with Trybooking.

Sadly we are unable to host Vaudeville Smash or BluGuru this year. Both of these wonderful acts have been locked down in Melbourne due to the Covid pandemic. Being such wonderful friends to the festival, we're sure to see them again in years to come.
So, this is what is happening...
The amazing Andrew Clermont from BluGuru is happliy still able to join us alongside quite frankly majical local act Voye...
& Festival favourites, those cheeky Adelaideians The Timbers will be gracing the Mountain Stage with their..."thumping rhythms and big misty mountain melodies"!? who could possibly resist!
