Linda Baker
"Spyglass Gypsies too cool for school ! Fantastic" Barb Lawson
"It was fabulous ! We had a wonderful time and thought it was the BEST EVER in Kiama. As a community event it was up there. A real highlight was Kevin Hunt with George Golla. Thank you so much to the organisers for all your hard work. We had a FAB weekend" Heather and Peter.
"Congratulations...it was a fantastic festival. The pick for me was the Kevin Hunt Trio with George Golla. Full house of course everything just perfect. Kevin Hunt was in fine form, a beautifully formed gig. Kevin suavely did his own compering and got the very best from his group. A real treat was the unexpected performance of Marie Wilson & Kate Halliday. A top quality and thoroughly enjoyable gig, Thank you" Graham Tucker
"Thank you, thank you, thank you for a fantastic weekend of great music. I agree - the best yet!! I was fortunate to catch a lots of the gigs, I applaud you all - so so so well done!! Thanks again" Becky
