Welcome to the Frances Folk Gathering!

Wow, what a blast!

Keith Potger

This year we had one of Australia’s most iconic folk performers, Keith Potger. Keith is part of one of Australia’s most successful and best known bands of all time, the Seekers.

Keith enthusiastically embraced the weekend, delivering beautiful perfomances, interesting workshops and colorful judging of our famous Mixed Grill!

It has been a privilege to welcome Keith to our Gathering.


As a bonus, Junior's first trip to Frances added heaps of musical enthusiasm, camaraderie and more of the same zany judging!

Plus there were heaps of workshops, sessions, dancing, public "speaking", food and of course the competitions.

We'll give you more of a wrap-up as we get the details together.

In the meantime you might like to see Ian Fisk's photos of the event here.

Our great big little Gathering is held (as always) over the last weekend of February.

Those who have been to the Frances Folk Gathering before will already have a good idea of what it's all about.
