Folk music returning to Cooranga North

COORANGA North Memorial Hall will be moving and grooving in a couple of months when esteemed musicians hit the venue as part of a state-wide tour.

The Festival of Small Halls visited Cooranga North for the first time last year and will be returning again on December 1 after its success in 2017.

The festival takes in little towns across Queensland including Texas, Bucca, Koah and Mt Nebo.

Cooranga North is the 10th stop on the tour, which culminates at the Woodford Folk Festival in the new year.

Hall committee member Karen O'Connor said they were excited to see the festival return.

"The one we hosted last year was their biggest crowd of the tour, apparently,” Ms O'Connor said.

"We sold out of the 250 tickets so we'll be aiming to repeat that this year.”

The festival will be headlined by Canadian banjo player Old Man Luedecke and Australian singer Lucy Wise.

Ms O'Connor said the highlight of the festival was the variety of people it drew.

"There were audience members who didn't know much about folk music, but they came out and absolutely loved it,” she said.

Tickets for this year's festival are available at Active Physiotherapy Dalby, Pips n Cherries Bell and Jampack'd Jandowae.

They are also available online at www.festivalofsmall halls.com
