Tablelands Folk Festival presents:
The March Yungaburra Sessions showcases the songs and music of Tablelands local Carinda Christie.
Christie extends on the importance of the right surroundings for art to flourish: “We’ve got eleven acres; we live up in the mountains. I can’t live in a city, it’s not who I am. That’s a big impact. As a child, I lived in a lot in caravan parks, we traveled a lot. Now to live here…we own our house and for the first three or four years, I walked around going “I live here!” My kids can pick strawberries and ride their bikes. My kids can experience that life that I never had. I had a great childhood, but it wasn’t free like my kids. And who knows, I might not have had the depth in my music if that hadn’t happened.”
As anyone who has seen the lady live before, Carinda Christie puts one hundred and ten percent into her live performances. From fields of blessed-out festival goers to mood-lit rooms full of respectful punters, she gives it all- and rightly so – because, as she explains, you never know who might be watching…. Able to bring her sweet and powerful rock-pop-folk to any surrounding, Christie’s talent has shone from both festival and pub stages, and countless in between.
Christie has hit the likes of the Aquarius Festival (Tasmania), Woodford Folk Festival, Goodwill Games (Brisbane), Brisbane Spiegel tent, Tablelands Folk Festival, Lismore Festival, Emerald Heartland Festival, Wallaby Creek Festival to name but a few. She has also supported high-profile artists such as Wendy Matthews and Grace Knight, Billy Thorpe, Tina Cousins, Pseudo Echo, Christine Anu and many more. Joining her for the March Tablelands Folk Festival Yungaburra Sessions will be a couple of well-known locals on guitar and drums bringing a full band sound to the Pub stage.
