"Songs Inside The Box" to screen at Woodford Folk Festival

I’m pleased to announce that “Songs Inside The Box,” the cigar box guitar documentary will be screened at the 2010/2011 Woodford Folk Festival in Woodford, Queensland, Australia. The screening is scheduled for Wednesday, December 29th at 6:30 p.m. and will be followed with performance by Eb ‘n’ Flo, a local cigar box guitar duo.

The annual Woodford Folk Festival is one of the largest cultural events of its type in Australia. The festival takes place over six days and nights from December 27th to January 1st each year. It features a wide range of performance styles, musical genres and nationalities, in many simultaneous venues across the site. About 130,000 patrons attend annually, camping on-site.

Eb ‘n’ Flo are actually Paul Thorley and Fluer Shelton who are from the area. They both make cigar box guitars and perform together. Their music ranges from melodic Appalachian music to country blues. I am excited that they will be appearing with the documentary.

  1. Hey Max,
    It was an honour to appear at the showing of “Songs Inside The Box” at the Woodford Folk Festival. The CBG thang has created a huge interest as did the Diddley Bow workshop we did during the festival. Looks like the revolution has embedded DOWN UNDER. . .yep

    best regards,

    Eb’n’Flo (Paul and Fleur)
