excitement builds as Lake Cullulleraine 2018 Music Festival Program locked down

   Even at the last minute, organisers of Lake Cullulleraine Music Festival are locking down a huge program of Australian artists – the latest inclusion this week being renegade folk cellist and singer-songwriter Monique Clare.  Monique burst onto the scene in 2017, launching her debut EP as Folk Alliance Artist of the Year.
Festival Music Director Chris Rogers said a last-minute withdrawal of one of the lead acts created an exciting opportunity to engage the renowned and talented Monique.
   “Due to circumstances beyond our control Broderick Smith is unable to make it to Cullulleraine for this year’s Festival,” Mr Rogers said.  “It’s disappointing, but we have a huge list of respected and emerging artists on our lineup and I think people will be genuinely excited about the diversity and talent we have here,” he added.
  Mr Rogers said the silver lining was that festival-goers would be delighted with Monique Clare, who will perform on Sunday at 12.40pm.  The artist describes her music as “earthy cello and powerful vocals in a performance that dances between darkness and light” with career highlights including playing in Kate Miller-Heidke’s string quartet.  Monique’s diverse career has taken her as far as Afghanistan as a performer and educator, and the USA on a grant-funded exploration of folk tradition. She has also led patrons “up the Glass House Mountains for mountain-top sunrise concerts” and performed in the Australian Youth Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House.
   Mr Rogers said the foreshore of beautiful freshwater Lake Cullulleraine would set the scene for a magical weekend of music, food, workshops and stalls this weekend and the program was shaping up well.
   The Program is now available on line at Cullulleraine Music Festival website.     It’s the festival’s fourth year, but its first year at the new venue - Johansen Memorial Park.
   Patrons will be well catered for with a diversity of food, BYO and licensed areas, a packed program of entertainment over three days, and even a free bus to shuttle patrons between the two caravan parks – Bushman’s Rest and Lake Cullulleraine Holiday Park.
   A focus on family-friendly value includes activities and workshops for children and a special Family Tickets price offer. Tickets will be sold at the gate or can be purchased online at the Festival website.

Official Launch of Cullulleraine Music Festival 2018

Last Wednesday the Festival committee invited sponsors, volunteers, and festival supporters to celebrate the first ‘official’ launch of the fourth Cullulleraine Music Festival, held 13 -15 April, on the banks of the beautiful Lake Cullulleraine.
Venue for the official launch was Fossey's Ginporium, a valued sponsor for the Festival, which will be held on the shore of Lake Cullulleraine, as in the past!
It was a great opportunity to acknowledge all, especially former committee members and Festival builders who had the determination and creativity to bring this fantastic community Festival into being.
"We came together to celebrate the Festival and the new team building this festival," event committee chair Robert Biggs said.
"Our vision is to bring together great music, food, activities, and community engagement to create an unforgettable event in our unique landscape: to surprise people with the quality of the experience."
The Cullulleraine Music Festival showcases local and national talents, and the music styles range from folk, gypsy jazz, acoustic roots through to blues and many others:  there will be something for everyone.
"We want people to take ownership of this festival, as it reflects their own community" committee member Di Povey said. "There are activities and workshops for all ages such as: dobro, songwriting, Irish sessions, creative drawing with local artists, and traveling Visit Victoria ambassador, Vicky the Truck. "We are committed to including and celebrating our local First Nation peoples, and the rich and varied multicultural elements of our current community."  This year the festival has a slight venue change to Johansen Memorial Reserve, still on the banks of Lake Cullulleraine, and a shuttle bus will run between the two main camping/caravan parks for the convenience of festival goers.  "The environment is a critical element of the festival," Ms Povey said, “we want to see everyone, including families, enjoying themselves in this fantastic space."
