Four Winds 2018 Easter Festival | Early Bird Tickets

By | 2018 Easter Festival, Latest News | No Comments

Wednesday 28th March to Easter Sunday 1st April 2018 Info and bookings

Dear all,

I am delighted to announce that tickets for the Four Winds 2018 Easter Festival are available from today. Please join me for what promises to be a beautiful Festival of music; it will be the most ambitious Four Winds Festival to date.

Surround yourself with Music, Brilliance and Beauty.

60 Artists, 10 Ensembles, 26 Performances, 10 Stunning Locations, 5 Days.

Four Winds 2018 Easter Festival
Wednesday 28 March to Sunday 1 April 2018

I’ve crafted a program which will take you on a global musical journey, from early music to the current day. The program features well-known works from composers such as Haydn, Schumann, Bach, Vivaldi, Byrd, Saint-Säens, Piazzolla and Respighi. I’ve also programmed an incredible work by South American composer Golijov; ‘Ayre’ features soprano Emma Pearson singing a vocal line inspired by many different cultures and traditions accompanied by Festival aritsts who play many instruments not normally seen on the concert hall platform. The spatial, still and atmospheric music of Arvo Pärt brings a Nordic influence to the program, which is in contrast to the energized Three Dancers by Australian composer Eleanor Kats-Chernin whose composition was inspired by the Picasso painting of the same name.

What is truly wonderful is the number of stunning musicians who have agreed to come and perform for you. Celebrated British violinist Jack Liebeck is returning by popular demand and for the first time we will welcome Israeli flautist Ariel Zuckermann (Music Director of the Israel Chamber Orchestra). They will take to the stage alongside some of Australia’s finest solo artists, including soprano Emma Pearson, pianists Tamara-Anna Cislowska and Ian Munro, harpist Alice Giles, guitarist Aleksandr Tsiboulski, and such highly regarded ensembles as the Goldner String Quartet, The Song Company, Speak Percussion and the Australian Brass Quintet. I’m also delighted that Jessie Lloyd’s ‘Mission Songs’ project will be presented as part of the Festival.

To ensure that everyone connects with the artists and the music they are experiencing, ABC Classic FM’s Guy Noble will be our host throughout the whole Festival.

The program centres on two full days of music in Four Winds out-door Sound Shell over the 2018 Easter weekend. Those performances will be complemented by a series of concerts in the Windsong Pavilion, which undoubtedly has one of the finest acoustics in Australia and I’m really looking forward to hearing some fabulous chamber music in that wonderful space.

The Festival will start with a free concert for the community on Friday 30 March following a day of free pop-up performances in and around Bermagui. For aspiring young creatives, we will be running a Youth Program over the two days of the Easter Weekend at the Four Winds site, including a creative kid’s tent.

I’m also excited about the inclusion of a short series of alternative music theatre pieces brought together under the title of ‘Sideshow Alley’. Presented as three consecutive performances on Easter Saturday evening in the Windsong Pavilion, these one-hour shows each comprise seven music theatre works performed by nine of the Festival’s guest artists. This is a unique opportunity – not often found in a Festival environment – to experience world class artists expressing their musicianship in a completely different, theatrical way, up close, in a dramatic intimate space. It will be like nothing you have ever seen before! This will be a world where circus meets sideshow, where illusions captivate and automaton-like players spring to life and perform at the drop of a coin…

The Festival will also feature new works, made possible through the support of our wonderful donors and funders such as Creative Partnerships Australia. Two of the works are inspired by literature, Murray Bail’s multi award-winning novel, Eucalyptus, and Walt Whitman’s epic poem, We Two Boys Together Clinging (Leaves of Grass, 1855). Local composer David Hewitt will be working with Stonewave Taiko, the Djaadjawan Dancers and members of the local Yuin Community to present his new work as part of a specially commissioned ‘Welcome to Country’.

I am really looking forward to welcoming you to the Festival which has such a great reputation amongst musicians. They love to play at Four Winds, surrounded by such extraordinary natural beauty and to perform to such appreciative, engaged audiences.

Of course, your whole Festival experience is enhanced by the opportunity to enjoy locally sourced food and wine throughout the Easter Weekend!

Surround yourself with music, brilliance and beauty over the 2018 Easter weekend – I look forward to seeing you there.

With very best wishes

James Crabb
Artistic Director

Field Studies Day Two August 2017

By | Bermagui Project | No Comments


An afternoon with Warren Foster Mum bulla Falls

By Elena Delmercato, Four Winds Volunteer

On day two, the artists gathered under the trees at Mum bulla Falls to listen to Warren Foster Yuin Community Leader, share stories about his connection to place.

A gifted story teller, Warren spoke engagingly about the relationship he and the people of the Yuin nation have with the natural world. Gesturing behind the group to the tall trees along the river bank, he told the group how ‘We look for signs in the trees. They tell us things and teach us…when the wattle is flowering it tells us there are fish in the rivers. When we come to the bush we talk to the bush, we sing to the bush.”. Warren also spoke about the sense of responsibility he feels to look after the land, “We are here to protect and look after the land…we come from mother earth; we have to put back in mother earth”.


Mum bulla is considered the man’s mountain, and it is a special place for ceremonies to mark the passing of young boys into adulthood. Warren shared with the group how the natural environment, in particular the nearby waterfalls, form part of the ceremony, “At the top of the waterfall you are still a boy. When you slide down into the water and come out below, you are a man.”.

At one point, Warren finished talking and started singing, a song that explained his connection to his land. The group was silent, and as he sang, it was as if the sounds of the bush were accompanying him – various birds called out, trees rustled as they moved in the wind, and the sound of the river. And in the back ground, the sound of Warren’s two young boys as they jumped about on the creek bed. It was a reminder that this bush, and this place had meaning not just for Warren but his family. Just as Bithry Inlet had meaning for the Grounds family. Places, and stories about places, that connect families and honour and respect the natural environment.

As on the previous day, the session ended with a note of thanks and recognition for the natural world. This time it was Warren who told the group how he respected this place every time he visits, and encouraged them to do the same ‘Every time I come up this mountain I take a drink from the creek and say thank you’.

Nature & Shared Creativity | Artists gather at Bithry Inlet

By | Latest News | No Comments


A group of 10 especially selected local artists gathered at Bithry Inlet for three days in mid-August to take part in the third creative field studies retreat run by the Four Winds team as part of the Bermagui Project.

This field studies weekend was the last of three which have been aimed at sharing knowledge of place and inspiring creative responses to the exquisite landscape and significance of country, with particular focus on the estuarine environment between Mumbulla and Gulaga Mountains. The resulting artworks, created by over 30 local artists, will be presented in an exhibition entitled Fresh Salt to be held in Canberra in October and then shown locally towards the end of the year.

“The idea behind the field studies is that we immerse artists in nature and present them with a curated program of expert ‘knowledge sharers’– people passionate and well-informed about the region’s environment and its history. This transfer of wisdom inspires artists to create new work that expresses the sometimes very complex ideas presented to them. That work goes on to present those complex issues in creative, accessible and easily understandable ways.” Says Lara Crew, the Producer of Four Winds Create and Inspire Program.

The latest study focused on the geographic area marked by Wapengo, Middle and Nelsons Lagoons. The broad themes for the Creative Field Studies retreats are developed in conjunction with two artistic co-ordinators selected from the local community. Leading this third field study were Justina Legoe, a Bermagui visual artist, and David Hewitt, the highly acclaimed composer and percussionist.

Knowledge sharers and participating artists included: Warren Foster, Yuin Community leader, Marr and Marina Grounds, son and granddaughter of Roy Grounds who was the architect of Myer House at Bithry Inlet; Warwick Anderson from Kingfisher Oysters; Mark McKenna and Fiona Firth, historians and authors; Lee Cruse, Yuin artist; Dr Rosemary Beaumont, social ecologist and forest activist; Emma Maratea, estuary scientist; Deb Nave, outdoor educator from the Tanja Lagoon Camp; Victoria Nelson, sculptor and visual artist; Skye Etherington, visual and performance artist; Lee Pemberton, nationally renowned choreographer; Delia Silvan, dancer/choreographer; and David Gallan, filmmaker.

Over the course of the three days the artists came to understand more deeply this unique estuary region on the far south coast of New South Wales, and the ways in which history, the natural environment and the people who live and work there come to define a sense of place. “There were many special moments. We were given access to some of the most remote and pristine parts of our region. We heard from locals and others passionate about the area how this place has been experienced and lived and how it has been nurtured and understood by generations”, said one participant at the end of the weekend.

This project is part of Four Winds’ commitment to nurturing and creating art inspired by place. It is about raising awareness and starting a discussion through art. “At the Four Winds Easter Festival, we always encourage our audience to surrender to the beauty of the natural surroundings. This project is a continuation of that philosophy”, Lara explained.

A visit with Marr and Marina Grounds at Myer House, Bithry Inlet

By Elena Delmercato, Four Winds Volunteer

Day One began with a session with Marr and Marina Grounds, son and granddaughter of Roy Grounds, the architect of Myer House, who established the property with Kenneth Myer. The artists gathered around the large wooden table in the impressive dining room of Myer House, the winter morning light streaming through the widows, to listen as Marina and Marr explained their connection to the house and to Bithry Inlet. As the morning unfolded, and Marina and Marr shared their memories with great generosity, the group witnessed the power of storytelling across generations and came to understand how this special place, and its unique natural environment, came to mean so much to their family.

The Grounds and Myer connection to the land began in the 1940’s, when, according to the story handed down in the families, the oysters in the nearby inlets were a big part of why the two friends chose this place – ‘The story goes that Ken and Roy were touring the coast sampling the oysters from all of the inlets when they discovered this land” said Marina.

The families shared a fascination and respect for the natural world. Ken was fascinated by the ecology of the marine environment, and Marina remembered that he could identify every fish, plant, animal, fungi or orchid, ‘In his room here at the house he kept detailed records and charts, including how many oysters he had caught’ recalled Marina. Her father, Marr, son of Roy, lived in the Barn from the mid 1980’s and created art there with his wife, also an artist. Marina would visit her dad, and recalled with joy the experiences of nature and the incredible freedom you get growing up in an environment like this’. Dad had one rule for me when I was growing up, she shared with the group, “If I ever left what we called ‘hearing and seeing distance’, I had to write a note and leave it under a stone”.

The place –both the buildings and the landscapes that are intertwined with them – continue to have great meaning for the descendants of Roy Grounds – “Coming here for me has always been coming home’ says Marina. While for Marr, Bithry Inlet gave him the opportunity to live ‘…the natural existence, a life lived without much infrastructure. A very simple life’. “In their great wisdom, my father and Ken Myer gave this special place to the Parks NSW”, said Marina. Asked about her feelings about the handover of the property to Parks NSW, Marina told the group, “The fact that place was no longer private, was in fact, really important. It is too special to be privately held”.

Over the course of the conversation, the group of artists came to understand how the passion of these two private families for the natural environment had helped to protect the unique and pristine land at Bithry Inlet. As Marina observes, “The ecology of the area is still intact; there are valleys full of ferns; and vines growing up the trees”.  As the group was moving to walk out towards the point and the equally distinctive external buildings, Lee Cruise, a visual artist and Yuin community member, addressed Marina and Marr and said ‘On behalf of my people, we owe you a thank you.  I come up here often with my father and grandfather; it is still its original environment. Thank you’.

State of the Arts Thursday 6 July 2017 | Windsong Pavilion, Four Winds Rd, Bermagui

This Thursday afternoon at 5.30pm in the Windsong Pavilion Dr Justin Macdonnell will take to the stage for the Radical Voice Talk Series #4. Justin is a leading arts historian and producer of Australian artists around the world. He will be talking about Chaos Theory and The Arts. Why are we always trying to force the arts and artists into boxes? Are we eroding wild and whimsical unpredictability… and are we getting duller in the process? Justin Macdonnell explores these questions and asks if it might be time to apply a little chaos theory to the arts scene.

Prior to this, from 2pm this Thursday, Regional Arts leaders are gathering at Four Winds Windsong Pavilion for an afternoon of discussion and collaboration stimulated by Lindy Hume’s Currency House Platform Paper ‘Restless Giant’. Lindy, who has strong links to the South Coast is leading a debate on regional Australia’s role in creating and presenting work and will be joining us via live video link from Brisbane.

A tale of shipwreck, heartbreak and redemption comes to the Windsong Pavilion

Sunday 2 July 2017, 12.30pm

Founder of Bell Shakespeare, John Bell, and internationally acclaimed pianist, Simon Tedeschi – two of Australia’s great storytellers – bring their unique performance of Enoch Arden to the Four Winds Windsong Pavilion, in Bermagui on Sunday 2 July 2017 at 12.30pm, as part of James Crabb, Four Winds Artistic Director’s, Windsong Series.

This epic melodrama, composed by Richard Strauss to the words of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s 1864 poem ‘Enoch Arden’, will be performed in words and music. “A tragic, tempestuous, romantic tale accompanied by the music of a genius. Half chamber music, half theatre.” says Simon Tedeschi.

The historic and artistic value of pairing poetry with classical music is something that both performers are eager to share with audiences as they tour around Australia. “Audiences can expect a moving and dramatic tale of shipwreck, loss and redemption— very satisfying theatre” says John Bell.

John Bell is one of Australian theatre’s most illustrious figures, having played a role in the development of our nation’s rich artistic culture, as founder of Bell Shakespeare, an actor and director. Simon Tedeschi, is one of the most sought-after pianists in Australia. After solo recitals and numerous awards throughout Europe, the USA and Asia, Tedeschi returned to Sydney in 2010 and has since performed as soloist for the Sydney and Adelaide Symphony Orchestras, Queensland Music Festival, Musica Viva and several concert series and major venues around the country.

This rich, philosophical tale of love and loss, inspired by some of Strauss’s most intriguing music, will be performed in the Four Winds Windsong Pavilion in Bermagui on Sunday 2 July at 12.30pm.

John Bell (Narrator) & Simon Tedeschi (Pianist) perform ‘Enoch Arden’
