October 11, 2021

The Festival Of Small Halls – a unique program which brings touring musicians to smaller communities – is coming to Kumbia for the first time!

Tickets have gone on sale online for the concert which will be held on November 11 at the Kumbia Memorial Hall.

A barbecue and bar will be running from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, with the show starting at 7:00pm.

The featured artists are two singer-songwriters, Andrea Kirwin and Tullara.

The pair are visiting 20 communities throughout the State as part of Woodfordia’s Queensland Summer Tour.

Andrea’s music is described as “island-soul” while Tullara is a blues/folk/pop guitarist.

Andrea released her first album, “From the Ground Up” in 2013 and since then has released four more independent albums. She will be joined by special guest harpist, Claire Evelynn, throughout the tour.

Tullara is also looking forward to performing in Kumbia.

“After such a rough 16 months of not being able to properly do what I love – which is tour Australia playing music – I am bouncing out of my skin with excitement to hit the road for the Festival of Small Halls Tour! I can’t wait to get back out there into the community and play some new music,” she said.

Eleanor said the Festival of Small Halls was created specifically to reach out into regions that might not see a lot of touring artists.

“We’ve worn a solid groove out into western Queensland and up north since 2013,” she said.

“The artists on this tour have blown audiences away in some of Australia’s largest festivals, but they’re also just wonderful people.

“There is no doubt in my mind that this tour is going to be great fun for both the artists and the communities who host them.”

Footnote: The Festival of Small Halls has previously brought successful events to Goomeri (2015) and Cooranga North (2018).
