It’s an event that celebrates cultural identity: the stories and music that are part of who we are.
Set amid native bush in the idyllic setting of Waiora Scout Camp near Dunedin, Whare Flat is a place where the ancient strains of Celtic music may be heard alongside local waiata, American old-time and bluegrass, as well as a wealth of other folk music from all around the world.
We may be small but we are mighty.
