GRAB your dancing shoes and singing voice because the Festival of Small Halls is coming to Mullaley.
The festival will visit Mullaley Community Hall on Saturday, May 1.
Feel-good ukulele strummer and drummer Bobby Alu and two-piece indie pop-rock band This Way North will feature on the upcoming Autumn tour across the state.
Presented by veteran festival producers Woodfordia Inc, the twenty-first edition of the much-loved not-for-profit music tour is taking on a packed tour schedule with the finest of home-grown talent visiting twenty community halls across NSW.
Refusing to be thwarted by a rapidly changing and challenging events environment, Festival of Small Halls has continued to keep small towns clapping with extra effort and support provided to communities to keep these regional tours safely running as planned.
"We were so inspired and impressed by the way community halls have been able to adopt these new conditions and not shy away from the extra hoops they have had to jump through to keep their communities safe," producer Eleanor Rigden said.
"Towards the end of 2020 when we got back on the road, hall committees and local groups really stepped up, realising it was more important than ever to support their communities to safely come together after a year of difficulty and isolation."
Hosting halls, known locally as stalwarts of community life, have been drawn from all corners of country and coastal NSW. Halls of all shapes and sizes will throw open their doors, from the rolling green hills of the Mid North hinterlands, to the dry bush of the Central West, from goldrush country to the fertile Southern Tablelands; from the golden sands of the south east coast, to the majesty of the Snowys.
The tour will take in the sprawling mass of regional NSW in a four-week marathon of excellent music, community spirit and the finest of country hospitality.
Famous for their larger-than-life folk festivals over the last two decades, Woodfordia presents a programme to be loved by their core base and new fans alike with the smooth Polynesian island vibes of Bobby Alu and the indie pop-rock party of van-lifers This Way North.
Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased via the Festival of Small Halls website.
The Festival of Small Halls Autumn Tour 2021 has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
