Noosa Junction will come alive from 11am on the 2nd of January, with an array of activities including a major one-day busking and chalk art competition (with $2,500 cash and other prizes), 12 interactive workshops, poetry and more. The evening will end with a five-hour, non-stop celebration concert (“A taste of Woodford”) at The J. Commencing with Firetree(a four piece band featuring Dale Buchan and Josie Cubis), the three busking finalists will then perform their winning acts. With comedy from Alan Glover (12 year veteran of the festival), and a sprinkle of poetry and magic, patrons will be then in for a real treat to hear some of Woodford’s best. Mamadou Diabate (world respected Kora player from Mali) will perform solo then come together with Jeff Lang (virtuoso guitarist, dynamic songwriter and startingly unique performer), and Bobby Singh (outstanding Tabla wizard) where east meets west in a rare performance. The concert will then morph into a dance partymixture of light and sound featuring PQM(A hip hop legend, having produced over 10 albums in his native New York), improvising with outstanding local musicians.
