The far north Queensland music festival season wrapped up last weekend with another very successful Tablelands Folk Festival. Now our focus shifts further south – as the wet season approaches and music events shift to the drier and more conducive southern latitudes. Tony Hillier previews some of the performers heading our way this summer.
