Newport Folk Festival Saturday 3 July 2010

Words Words Words and more words. The spoken as opposed to the sung. It was my pleasure to organise and mc this event for the Newport Folk Club for the second year in a row. Wearing my Club hat and my Storytelling Guild (Vic) hat, I had two hours to invite as many storytellers, poets and reciters to mic as I could fit. This year we were overwhelmed by the interest in Words. Our venue was packed to standing room only. There were so many memorable moments and performances. Pictured is Dave Davies in full flight. Dave is an NFFC member and a regular reciter of the great Australian poets and story writers of the the nineteenth and twentieth centuries including Lawson, Patterson and Dennis. Pictured also is Claudette D'Cruz wearing her apron with the Storytelling Guild (Vic) logo. Claudette is the backbone of the kitchen when the Guild are involved, tireless and generous. Once again she donated not only her time but packets of curries and chai which were were able to give away to the audience as door prizes. Claudette is the creator of No Worries Curries

Thanks to all who contributed to such a great event. See you all in 2011.
