Welcome to the Gulgong and District Folk Club.

Welcome to Wiradjuri Country 

LIVE AT THE PRINCE OF WALES OPERA HOUSE GULGONG

John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew

Backtracks - The Songs, The Stories

One night only at the Prince Of Wales Opera House,

John Schumann & The Vagabond Crew Unplugged Lineup

Saturday Night 13th January 2024, proudly brought to you by the Gulgong Chamber of Commerce.

“Schumann's voice carries the wind in from the outback. It's flecked with toil, hardship humanity and love - like the weathered bark of a gum, tinged with the light of hope.”

Acclaimed as one of the finest songwriters this country has produced, there is much more to John Schumann than his years in Redgum and his timeless anthem “I was only 19”.

Inspirational, funny, intelligent and defiantly Australian, John Schumann and his band of brothers have earned a stellar reputation.

Gulgong New South Wales - one night only. Absolutely not to be missed!

WHY VISIT HISTORIC GULGONG?

GULGONG IS A TOWN STEEPED IN HISTORY

FROM the dusty goldrush days when Gulgong was teaming with thousands of frontiers looking to find their fortune in the 1850's to early settlers staking farming land. A town with a background in mining and agriculture to now a vibrant community with many visitors to Gulgong deciding to make Gulgong district their home. With Mudgee, a large regional centre, at its doorstep and the beauty of the surrounding land. There is no better reason for not visiting. 

We could not have made the 2023 
festival happen without our sponsors - we would like to shout out a very big Thank-you to them...
