JOE NEWTON

THURSDAY OPENING NIGHT GALA
FRIDAY, SATURDAY & SUNDAY

Passionate, heartfelt, and thoughtful.

Winner of the 2017 Bellingen poetry slam
Joe Newton is a story telling, journey guiding, musical and lyrical master.

Drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of his native Dorrigo on the Mid North Coast of NSW, Joe blends urgent bluesy fingerpicking with empowering off the cuff poetry. His songs offer an impassioned slice of contemporary roots which carry with them a message that connects deep into the soul of this generation. Joe is currently based in Gleniffer NSW and where he has been quietly tinkering away in his home studio recording his debut album 'Slipstream'. 


A blend of folk, blues, rock and reggae, his music is earthy, honest and down home.
