Music, Art, Events

Jo has a passion for creative projects that get people out of their heads and into their hearts and creativity. As a musician and artist she is committed to creating events that are human scale, sustainable and encourage education, joy and connection.

Jo was central to establishing the National Folk Festival in Canberra, as Assistant Director and then Program Manager, a job later rebranded as Artistic Director. She and her partner Dave O’Neill are now returning to the National Folk Festival having just been appointed co-Artistic Directors. Jo currently directs the Celtic Arts Agency, a primary school music program in Canberra; leads walking/music/singing trips in France; directs the Charlotte Pass Celtic Music Camp with Dave O’Neill and hosts residential singing events with Rachel Hore, OAM and Moya Simpson, OAM.
