Tablelands Folk Festival 2013

Tablelands Folk Festival - Silktones2013 Tablelands Folk Festival held in Yungaburra excelled again this year as a great festival renowned for its great atmosphere and fantastic headline acts. The festival which opened with performances in Herberton on Thursday the 24th October continued through to Sunday 27th October. Returned again this year to the home of the Yungaburra Hotel - the festival resounded from within and incorporated other nearby venues for another extremely successful festival. The festival was well attended with a great positive vibe from all who participated - performers, volunteers, organisers and attendees.

Silktones really enjoyed being a part of this year's festival lineup. Their first performance was on Friday night on the Garden Stage at 11 o'clock and their second performance Tablelands Folk Festival - Silktoneswas on Saturday night in the Community Hall at 7 o'clock. Warmly received by their small intimate audience of friends and festival goers, Shirl and Jim performed their original tunes which included the songs that will be released on their forthcoming debut CD.

Impromptu jams flavour this festival flowing over into corners of the park, campgrounds and designated stage areas.

The Festival provided non-stop music on multiple stages over the weekend with local and interstate artists. Festival favourites also included the Songwriting competitions, Poets Brekky, free Children's Festival & Parade, free Overflow Public Stage, Wellbeing Fair, Market Stalls, & the famous Pub Verandah non-stop Jams with a wide range of music to suit all tastes.

Leading up to the festival, Silktones were a feature act that the July Yungaburra Jam Session held in conjunction with the Tablelands Folk Festival where they performed a range of original tunes and cover songs suited for the occasion in the hotel lounge. Preceded by the usual Irish Jam Session and followed by the Member Showcase it was a great night.

Blue Tonic also performed some original songs at the Garden Stage in the Songwriting Showcase.
