The Northern Folk + This Way North

Saturday 17 December, 2022

Yackandandah Public Hall

Doors – 7pm / Show – 7.30pm

The Northern Folk are back for their last gig of the year!

Fresh from the release of their brand-new single ‘Jacarandas’, the ten-piece indie folk/pop collective are returning to the Border, bringing more new songs, more massive arrangements, more roaring horns, more vocal duets, and more members than any sensible band should have.

With a “strength of performance second to none” live (Beat Magazine)- and live shows being few and far between recently- you don’t want to miss this one.

Come join The Northern Folk & This Way North at The Yackandandah Public Hall on December 17 and help make their last show of the year a big one!


This Way North’s music is irresistible! Chewy, tasty hooks, incredible drum beats partnered with deliciously discreet guitar licks that dare your toes not to tap and your hips not to sway, all topped off with sweet vocal harmonies. Theirs is a sound that is delightful and familiar, yet completely fresh and new. On stage, this duo is absolutely captivating and disarming, bringing a light-hearted energy to the room and an ability to create lifelong fans in a matter of moments.”

— Lisa Schwartz President of Folk Alliance International, Artistic Director Philadelphia Folk Festival

Arts Yackandandah is a community arts organisation that celebrates and supports creativity, artistic talent, and cultural expression within the Yackandandah community, as well as from further afield.

The pandemic has been a challenging time for artists, performers and creative everywhere. Here in Yackandandah, we dove headfirst into those challenges, spending the past year learning to adopt new ticketing, seating and reporting systems, as well as adapting our financial and promotional models to be nimble and responsive to changing circumstances.

All of these new skills have put us in good stead for 2022, and with vaccinations levels rising and restrictions and community concerns easing, we are super excited about bringing a year’s worth of creative content to Yackandandah audiences.

In 2022 you can expect to hear plenty of live music from familiar and new travelling performers, as well as feature concerts by some of our homegrown groups. The Yackandandah Theatre Company is set to return to the stage this year with a brand new live production, as well as a travelling performance by our friends from Highway 1 Theatre Company. Flickside has a great selection of films lined up for the 2022 season, which will launch in April with the much awaited French Film double feature. This year’s arts season will also be packed full of workshops, house concerts, and community celebrations.

With so much great content in the pipeline, now is a great time to renew or take out an Arts Yack membership. In addition to receiving the most up to date information about all upcoming performances and creative happenings, you’ll enjoy discounts on every ticket you purchase, get FREE entrance to all Flickside screenings, and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that your support helps all of this great content come to fruition. Head to to renew today!

* All Arts Yackandandah events will be undertaken in accordance with the COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines of the time, and patron and artist safety will remain our highest priority.
