- THE TAMAR VALLEY FESTIVAL, Georgetown.
On the Eastside of the Tamar River, in a once bustling Port the whole area is surrounded by natural beauty. I spent one serene afternoon at Bonnie Point, below the mining town of Beaconsfield, watching happy folks fish. It’s on the following week from Cygnet, and of course, makes full use of having such wonderful performers on their shores. Many of them have a double booking which is why I will be briefer about this festival. One delightful surprise was the number of Territorians who were down; sort of Top Half meets Bottom Half. Folk from Alice, Darwin and Nuriootpa had got together a tribute concert to Woody Guthrie, and very good it was too.
