“If I had to choose, I would play in regional towns rather than big cities, every time,” said touring artist Claire Anne Taylor. “Playing shows in regional places makes me feel more connected with my audience, and I love the way that there is more opportunity for talking with locals and getting a feel for the place. “This kind of intimacy and connection is rare in big cities.”

The Festival of Small Halls is a unique regional touring concept, working with community groups and regional councils across Australia to take some of the best international and national music into rural and remote areas of Australia.

The Festival of Small Halls Summer Tour 2018: Cygnet to Illawarra is presented by Woodfordia Inc in partnership with the Cygnet Folk Festival and the Illawarra Folk Festival.
