Irish-Australian Maria Forde has straddled both sides of her heritage in her songwriting. Incorporating the sweet melodies that are the trademark of the Irish musical heritage, with observations of Australia and her personal experiences, Maria has blossomed into one of Australia’s premier songwriters.
Maria has toured constantly and built a dedicated fan base, both in Australia, and internationally. In 2015 she was awarded 'Performer of the Year' by the Koroit Celtic Festival.

Due to limited time and popularity the Stage Manager cannot guarantee a slot
to all aspiring open stage performers so it is best to arrive well before a
concert starts to be in the running for a slot. The Stage Manager may give
preference to acts that did not appear the previous month. Time is limited
to 8 minutes total stage time and all performances are un-plugged, that is
no mics or amps. Acts pay normal admission and need to have good audience
rapport and ability in order to add value to a concert.
If a support act is scheduled they are generally allocated 25 minutes.
Supports acts are paid a set fee and we can help sell your CDs and promote your
