Alex & Annette Hood – a Tribute Supported by Paverty Bush Band and featuring St Gregory Primary School Queanbeyan Bicentennial Hall 1.30pm Saturday 3 April 2021
COVID-19 put paid to last year’s National Folk Festival, at which Alex and Annette Hood were to have received Lifetime Achievement Awards for their significant commitment and contribution to enriching folk music and culture in Australia.
While this year’s festival was also cancelled, the Good Folk event in Queanbeyan during Easter will be a fitting opportunity for them to receive their awards.
FourPlay String Quartet at Good Folk 5.30pm Sunday 4 April 2021 Queanbeyan Bicentennial Hall
In 1995, four members of the Australian Youth Orchestra started ‘mucking around’ and playing covers of artists such as Jimi Hendrix. As a joke, they entered a university band competition – and won.
After 25 years, FourPlay is still a string quartet, comprised of violinist and singer Lara Goodridge, viola players Tim Hollo and Shenzo Gregorio, and cellist (and Tim’s brother), Peter Hollo. But there’s no penguin suit or evening gown in sight.
