Every part of Australia is, always was and always will be, Aboriginal land. As a community gathering-place, a festival of arts, cultural exchange and celebration and as a site for the sharing of ideas and stories, Ten Days on the Island pays respect to the palawa – original owners and cultural custodians - of all the lands and waters across lutruwita/Tasmania upon which our Festival takes place.

Before recorded music, fiddlers were the most portable of musicians, and the keeper of the tunes.

Van Diemen’s Fiddles explore nostalgic folk tunes from all around the world, including original arrangements of works from the manuscript of Scottish fiddler Alexander Laing, who exported some of the first fiddle music to Tasmania.

The walls of the Ross Town Hall will reverberate with nostalgic folk tunes from around the world.
