It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2021 Newcastle Music Festival due to the expanding COVID outbreak in Sydney.

All ticket holders will receive a refund automatically.​

As part of the Newcastle Music Festival, virtuosic guitarist Andrew Blanch and American harpist Emily Granger perform exquisite repertoire for guitar and harp, with Newcastle’s own Gully Line Quartet, in the fittingly artistic setting of Newcastle Art Gallery.
