The Roaring Forties had a grand time singing at the 2013 Illawarra Folk Festival. We presented songs from the latest CD, We Made the Steel in a Saturday workshop – with lots of interesting feedback from former Port Kembla steelworkers. We missed Tom Hanson who was ill.

We also had a concert spot on Sunday afternoon between the Combined Union Choirs and the tribute to Woody Guthrie. A good chance to do some of our industrial-strength songs.

It was good to sing a few Australian themed songs in the tribute concert for Alan Scott, and there was a fine singing session that went late on Saturday night in the horse stalls.

Thanks to all the organising team, the volunteers and the enthusiastic audiences for making it so much fun for us.
