Rusty Falcon is the latest musical phoenix to have emerged from the local King Island music scene. Think of Mark Knopfler morphing into Paul Kelly and topped off with a big dash of Talking Heads ... when you hear his debut single "Stranger In Town" you'll know what we mean.

The Lankys (aka the Lancaster family) are a local six-piece band King Island. With ages ranging from 10 to *undisclosed* this dairy farming family just love playing music together. With a nod to Rend Collective (and plenty of practice at the local Anglican Church), they will have you dancing in the aisles!
This year will be Emily’s second appearance on the FOKI stage. She enjoys playing songs written well before her time. Accompanied by her guitar, it is great to see her achieving such things at 16.
Jo's life on King Island has always included singing, as a child it was with her Dad, him playing the mouth organ to today at Joy's first FOKI. Her preferred style is folk with a Celtic influence and country..it’s all in the lyrics! Go Jo !!!
