Squeezer and the Uranettes
By popular request after critical acclaim in 2014, 'Squeezer and the Uranettes' makes a triumphant return to Uranquinty. This show celebrates the treasured and near forgotten art of the 60's GIRLIE CHORUS! Bandleader is accordionist Peter Anderson, wearing a different hat as a 60's singer guitarist.
The band is open to all comers to either join the backline or lead their favourite 60's song. The Uranettes also welcome all comers, with a preference of course for those of female persuasion. This will be a finely honed and polished performance, as it is having one rehearsal (!!!) at Jack's Hut on Sunday at 3pm.
"The Uranquinty Folk Festival reminds us that there are still many decent people around. Families and friends who can enjoy a simple experience in a beautiful spot, where you make your own entertainment with like minded folk. Relaxing and rejuvenating, 'Quinty' can revive your soul and your faith in humanity". Danny Spooner - Patron
At Quinty the emphasis is on participation, campfire & pub sessions, workshops, dances and blackboards. Concerts at the Uranquinty Hotel and the Oval, where we encourage new and/or unknown artists as well as old friends.
Tickets are available at the Uranquinty Hotel on Friday night or at the Sportsground on Saturday and Sunday.
Camping (free) is at the showground which is where most of the action takes place. The only venue not located at the showground is the pub, a short walk (or drive) away. Vehicles are allowed in the campsite but please don't drive across the centre - it wrecks the cricket pitch.
Wood is provided for a number of bonfires around the camp site which serve as centres of warmth, fellowship and music well into the night.
Alcohol is permitted, but remember the festival is family-friendly.
Dogs are welcome but please keep them under close control and clean up after them. If you bring a dog this means you. Even if you've always brought your dog and never bothered before, it means you! ALL DOGS ON LEADS AT ALL TIMES AND CLEAN UP AFTER THEM! Transgressors will be handed over to the cheese police. You have been warned!
Breakfasts and dinners are available at the hall on sat and sun. Food is also available from the pub, the bakery and the takeaway, or you can cook your own.
Locals have been known to remark on how clean we leave the site when we go - your help in following that tradition will be most appreciated.
