Chris Gillespie and Cameron James Henderson

Cameron has been a mainstay in the Sydney Blues scene for some time, and is a regular at many venues across the city, when not touring with one of his many bands.
He’ll be joined by Blue Mountains musician Chris Gillespie, a Heart of Annandale favourite. When not running his own solar powered recording studio, you’ll catch him performing regularly at venues in the city and further afield.
Together, their honest and raw blues tunes will keep us well entertained, as we kick off proceedings for our closing celebration!


Pocket Trio


Inner West folk band Giffen have been winning the affections of folk and country music lovers alike with their nostalgic reflections of youth and family, enhanced by their lush instrumentation of rich multi-layer harmonies, mandolin, guitar, accordion and double bass & drums.

The Hollands!

The Hollands! are a 21st century nomadic family based in the US via Australia and frolic in the Americana, folk revival scene. They are seasoned concert performers, engaging audiences and rousing a sing along with their intimate merrymaking.

By the end of their performance, audiences will feel like they are part of the band. This is the experience and magic that happens when The Hollands! come to town.
