the festival 2013
The Merrepen Festival offers a full weekend of activity, so it's worth planning to make a weekend of it in the beautiful Daly. Highlights of the weekend are the Saturday night concert, the Art Sale and the Fi Weaving Tours. We will also be exhibiting our limited edition prints in the gallery.


 

7pm Saturday 1st June

Riverside Concert

A concert with Wendy Matthews, Tracey Bunn, Emu Sisters and Traditional Dancers
On the banks of the Daly River. Bring a picnic basket and a rug.

The Emu Sisters

The sisters are from Wadeye. The singers are women who sing in one of the rarest languages in the region called 'Murringarr'. They are part of the new wave of artistic cultural 'maintenance' and use their music as an instrument of language and cultural preservation. The Emu Sisters provide an honest and enduring musical inspiration that is rare to experience anywhere but the Northern Territory.
