Welcome to the 3rd Perisher Snowy Mountains of Music festival. Once again the festival opens the official opening weekend of the Australian Ski Season up at Perisher, Smiggins and Guthega. We’re much more than just a music festival, we’re the only music festival in Australia in the snow! The festival is growing bigger every year and this year we’ve got a fantastic program for you with over 130 artists flocking from all over Australia to bring you over 130 concerts and workshops across 10 venues in the snow. Whether you want to get cosy and warm up your Winter with some chilled acoustic, or get pumped on the dance floor with some Afro beats, the festival has it all with live music blazing from early till late at The Smigs Stage, The Man From Snowy River Hotel, the Sundeck Hotel, the Manor, the Jax Bar, Kids Stage, Bazil’s Bar, Guthega Alpine Inn, Mid Perisher Centre and at the Basement Workshop. Starting Friday evening, Smiggins kicks off the party with a cocktail party followed by music by Richard Perso, Azadoota, Marshall and the Fro with Ash Grunwald cranking out his legendary sound till late in the night. From Friday through to Monday across the resort there’s a feast of flavours, from African in the snow with King Marong and Afro

Welcome The Perisher Resorts Chamber of Commerce is proud to welcome the arrival of the 2011 Winter Snow Season with the 3rd Perisher Snowy Mountains of Music Festival. Over 130 fabulous musicians, poets, and storytellers comprising over 40 acts will ascend into the mountains to share their passion for their art and be part of our Festival. This is a festival packed with live music in intimate and picturesque surroundings! It will be a sumptuous musical feast that will celebrate music traditions from around the world in spectacular venues high in the mountains. We are delighted with the diversity of the musical talent presented at the Festival – from feisty fiddle arrangements to the big world music sound of our headliners. We are extremely pleased to feature a greater indigenous content within the festival through the support of the Australian Government Indigenous Cultural Fund. We are especially proud of the Kid’s Stage, with amazing puppeteers, musicians, instrument makers, drummers and storytellers. The workshop program has also been dramatically enhanced with great learning and listening sessions with some great artists. The response from musicians, poets, storytellers to be part of the event has been amazing. The quality of the lineup is exceptional once again. It’s exciting to see live performance alive and well in Australia. We hope you also grab a copy of the festival CD – Love, Peace and Powder – to enjoy and to boast to your friends that missed out! We hope you thoroughly enjoy our Festival and that you will tell the world to come to the next Festival in 2012! Belinda Shore David De Santi Executive Artistic Director Director

3rd Snowy Mountains of Music 10 to 13 June 2011


It’s great to know live music is enjoying a resurgence in regional areas particularly in such spectacular surrounds as the Snowy Mountains.

"I am very pleased to welcome you to the Snowy Mountains for the Perisher Snowy Mountains of Music Festival. The festival has grown over three years to become the premier music festival in the Snowies and this year will have over 100 concerts at 8 venues across the resort!

Festivals like the Perisher Snowy Mountains of Music Festival allow audiences to experience and appreciate a range of music in iconic surrounds as well as strengthening local communities and driving cultural tourism. It’s also excellent to see emerging Indigenous artists being given a chance to be centre stage where they can showcase their talent to a wide ranging and appreciative audience. Indigenous music and dance is a major force in shaping our national culture and expanding this year’s event to provide greater focus on the contributions of Indigenous Australians is a fantastic development. Improving community engagement and access to the arts are priority areas for me in the cross over between my regional focus as Minister for Regional Australia, Regional Development and Local Government and as Minister for the Arts. It’s vital we connect aspiring musicians and artists with opportunities and support them to strive for excellence. With such an impressive line up of artists and workshops it promises to be a great weekend of entertainment. Congratulations to the festival team on this great initiative bringing such a great line-up of talent from all corners of Australia to the mountains and best wishes for a fun weekend to all the festival goers. The Australian Government is pleased to be providing $25,000 from the Indigenous Culture Support program which supports the maintenance and continued development of Indigenous culture at the community level.

Simon Crean Minister for the Arts Welcome to Perisher’s Third Snowy Mountains of Music Festival. Perisher is very pleased to host the rich and diverse range of musical genres and experiences that we will all enjoy in so many unique venues. My deepest thanks go to all those involved in bringing this wonderful festival to life. Without the unwavering dedication and energy of the Perisher Resorts Chamber of Commerce, in particular Festival Chairperson Belinda Shore and Artistic Director David De Santi, we would not be where we are today. So many people have contributed so much to ensure the Snowy Mountains of Music Festival is a successful annual event not to be missed. And what is a festival without artists ..... thank you so much to all the artists supporting the festival. Thanks also go to all of the event supporters and sponsors for helping make the festival happen including WIN TV, Carlton, Cumulus, Tourism New South Wales and the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.

There is going to be something for everyone in Perisher over the festival weekend and I know it will be a very enjoyable experience for all involved. I am very pleased that my electorate will play backdrop to such an exciting festival. There is nowhere in Australia quite like the Snowy Mountains and this exciting family-friendly event will show off the distinctive qualities of the Mountains and the community which I'm proud to represent. I hope you have fun enjoying this great music in this unique environment

John Barilaro Member for Monaro As we see the snow starting to fall in our beautiful high country, heralding what promises to be another great season, it means it is time again to enjoy one of our iconic regional events, the Perisher Snowy Mountains of Music. This event has, in every sense, become part of the landscape, where the inspiration of the music is complemented by the majesty of the mountains. The colourful richness of the music is a celebration of diversity, the sort of diversity that had its birth in Australia right here in the high country, through the many different peoples who came to build the snowy hydro scheme. It is events like these that truly make our beloved Snowy Mountains a winter wonderland where we can take time out to enjoy great company, great fun and the creativity of the human spirit. My congratulations to the organisers who have worked so hard to bring off yet another superb program.

Mike Kelly AM MP Federal Member for Eden Monaro I would like to welcome all visitors to the third Perisher Snowy Mountains of Music Festival. The festival is set in the unique environment that is Kosciuszko National Park. Kosciuszko contains the country’s highest peaks, fragile mountain ecosystems, the famous Murray and Snowy Rivers, the rare Mountain Pygmy Possum and Corroboree Frog and many huts and ruins and of course our thriving alpine resort communities. Whether you come here to enjoy the solitude and scenery or the nightlife of the resorts everyone agrees that it is a special place to visit.

Welcome to Perisher! I hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend.

Over the festival weekend I hope you get the opportunity to enjoy the mountains, the music and the beginning of winter.

AFRO MANDINKO

AZADOOTA

BIG ERLE

Experience the high energy grooves and funky afro moves of this world inspired Afrobeat explosion! Gambian Master Percussionist King Marong and his band Afro Mandinko deliver a breath of fresh air into the Australian African/World music scene. Drawing on influences from across West Africa ranging from coastal Gambian high-life to deep Saharan Desert Blues, Afro Mandinko fuses the centuries old traditions of West Africa with the contemporary sounds of Western styles, creating a vibrant blend of irresistible dance music. With elements of afrobeat, funk, Latin, reggae, dance-hall and jazz it’s a modern mix, underpinned by the deep roots of the traditional rhythms and melodies of Kings Manding heritage.

Azadoota was a favourite at the inaugural Snowy Mountains of Music in 2009 with their catchy Assyrian originals and accessible, dance-driven style. This year they return with one of the Arab world's top oud players, Ahmed Al-Karawi. Led by charismatic Iraqi singer Robin Zirwanda, the band fuses traditional Assyrian music with Arabic, Latin, Flamenco and Pop. Backed by pumping grooves and flamboyant percussion, oud maestro Ahmed challenges young Flamenco guitar hot-shot Chris Duff to a string duel, creating a synthesis of ancient and contemporary that reaches to the depths of the soul.

Self described as a “Foot Stompin’ Blues band”. Big Erle’s original compositions draw influence from blues players and his own personal experiences in the 90's East Coast Music scene. Playing acoustic blues guitar, Big Erle features a raw finger picking style and quirky lap steel slide with growling vocals and a driving rhythm section.

ASH GRUNWALD Ash Grunwald’s fifth studio album, HOT MAMA VIBES, is neck-deep in the technological swamp of the 21st Century. It's also the most primal concoction of elemental junkyard soul to stomp through your speakers this year. "Mixing electronica with the blues was always a dream of mine," says Ash, now a 10-year veteran of live stages from Byron Bay Bluesfest to the Montreux Jazz Festival.

BEC MATTHEWS From stomping swamp blues to classical West African folk songs, take a journey to far flung corners of the globe with Bec Matthews. From stories of misadventure with African witch doctors to songs speaking of our own stark inequalities, Bec's original songs are accompanied by a variety of West Africa strings and other things.......

CHRISTINE ANU For the uninitiated, Christine is arguably Australia’s most successful indigenous artist and one of Australia’s most popular recording artists, backed by an award-winning repertoire spanning across music, theatre, dance, film, television and children’s entertainment. Her illustrious career over two decades boasts of platinum albums, sell-out musicals, Hollywood blockbusters, and high-profiled collaborations with showbiz and musical luminaries such as Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge), Paul Kelly and David Atkins. SUN SMIGS STAGE 9:30pm - 10:45pm

DOC JONES AND THE LECHERY ORCHESTRA This is quirky original music for sure, with songs about the strangest and most evocative things – the Spanish Inquisition, a late night tango on the sawdust of a circus ring, and even a song about being a teapot! But, like a good film score, the music underpinning these strange tales will let listeners lose themselves in the story. Sometimes it is busy and as over the top as the words of the song, other times spacious and beautiful, but always leaving the listener intrigued and wondering what is coming next.

While Triple J describe her as "the modern day Janis Joplin" and awarded her the Top Ten Blues and Roots album for 2009; Musicoz also this year recognised her as the Music Network ARTIST OF THE YEAR and Blues and Roots Artist of the Year.

ERIC BOGLE Eric Bogle was born in Peebles, Scotland a few months after the D-Day landings in Normandy. One of a set, his twin sister Sandra had her own D-Day about 15 minutes after Eric's. A particularly annoying, whiney little child, it was prophesied that Eric was either destined to be a politician or a folk singer of protest songs. And so one of these prophesies came to pass.....

HEATH CULLEN & THE 45

SAT JAX STAGE 1:30pm - 2:45pm

Heath Cullen is a name that's certainly not new to the scene. His guitar work has been around for the past decade, and appeared on numerous releases, notably from Jackie Marshall, Lucie Thorne, and more recently Tim Freedman. With the aide of his own band The 45, Heath Cullen branches out and carves his own unique territory with a strong debut album in 'A Storm Was Coming But I Didn't Feel Nothing'. Though rooted to some extent in alt-country, folk and rock, the album is adventurous, not afraid to dabble in whatever style evokes the required mood.

RUSSELL HANNAH

THE APRIL MAZE

THE CON ARTISTS

Russell has been the anchor man of the Illawarra Folk Club and Folk Festival since their inceptions. Russell fancies himself with the art of versifying in addition to being a tripe aficionado, woolly yarn spinner, tormenter of accordion players and a fine fellow to have schnapps with. He has recently collaborated with Jim Haynes to produce a number of Australian poetry and storybooks.

Living on the open road of Australia in a 1976 Kombi van, alternative-folk power-duo The April Maze have been touring the country on the back of their recently released debut Album ‘Recycled Soul’. Using cello, guitar, banjo, stomp box and strong male-female harmonies, this fiercely passionate yet affable duo combine folk, classical and soul music into their captivating live show. Their first full-length album ‘Recycled Soul’ will continue to take them around Australia, before touring internationally to New Zealand, USA, Canada and Europe in 2011.

Gypsy orchestra? Cabaret band, Folk ensemble? 'The Con Artists' play Tom Waits, Jean-Marc Zelwer, Italian tarantellas, 1920's Klezmer dance tunes, Mariachi, Québécois folk, Balkan brass and even a little 70’s R&B. ‘The Con Artists' are a recent collaboration between members of the Concord Community Band, the Wollongong Conservatorium Concert Orchestra and Illawarra folk musicians.

THE STIFF GINS

THE WOOHOO REVUE

WONGAWILLI

Stiff Gins Nardi Simpson and Kaleena Briggs have travelled the world, received prestigious awards, and created a loyal fan base with their heartfelt songs and emotive performances. They’ve performed in the Middle East and remote communities across Australia, and developed a musical friendship that has transformed them both. Now, with their new album Wind & Water, they have perfected a sound that honours the raw power of their voices and their history while leading them firmly into the future of Australian music.

Call them what you will- 'Balkan gypsy brass band, roaring twenties swing ensemble, Wild West fiddle contest or a soundtrack for Looney Tunes'- it barely scratches the surface. There are few, if any parallels to the sound of The Woohoo Revue. This fiendishly talented sextet create an adrenalin-fuelled celebration fit for dancing, drinking, and ignoring tomorrow. The combination of absolute dance floor mayhem and a strong sense of old world style has inspired the Age Newspaper to describe The Woohoo Revue’s shows as ‘pandemonium in a pin striped suit’.

The Wongawilli Band has been an ambassador for Australian folk music since 1987. Since that time they have continued to revive old songs and tunes and to create new ones in the style. In recent years the band has performed in China (3 times), Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Germany, New Zealand and the UK. The band has performed at all major folk festivals in all Australian states. Their recent album ‘Australia Street’ is a fine reflection of their enthusiasm, musicianship and creativity.
