The Wintermoon Music Festival is held yearly in Cameron’s Pocket, just about an hour’s drive north of Mackay Queensland, Australia.  The festival has been going for over 20 years and I have been there for the last 10 or so.  It’s a small privately run festival that is special in so many ways.  The property itself is on the edge of Eungalla National park and holds a vibration of thousands of years of gatherings and celebrations.  I’d like to take this time to acknowledge the traditional custodians of that area, past ancestors, and future generations – the Werri and the Berri people.

Like so many gatherings this year, Wintermoon was postponed.  I know that many people have missed it and so I decided to collect as many songs as I could find that were written specifically about Wintermoon.

The songs I have uncovered are by Andrea Kirwin, The Chai House Band, Rebecca Wright, Rose Bygrave, Swoon, The Brothers Calling, and a very special recording of the closing ceremony by Kenny Dodd. For more Wintermoon Goodness, Check out the other Wintermoon Episodes – Links below!

___________________________

The first weekend in May, I drove for eleven hours to attend the 20th anniversary of Wintermoon Music Festival, my favourite music festival in all of Australia! I set up This Time Studios behind the main stage during the festival and grabbed various performers and volunteers to talk about their experiences over the years at Wintermoon. Interspersed with music by the artists, part two includes, Chris Young – Paul Robert Burton – Paul Longley – Nadia Sundae- with frequent visits from Jay Bishoff and co-founder of the festival, Chris It’s a long one, but well worth it, so you may want to download it and listen at your convenience!

Having been born on Friday the 13th, the number thirteen has always been a lucky number for me  and so, I decided to take Episode 13 as my own! Rather than interview myself, I asked one of my closest friends, Tilly Hinton, to do the honours.  Tilly had some interesting questions, ones I wouldn’t have thought to ask myself.
