Friday 8 March. The 43rd Port Fairy Folk Festival is happening in the picturesque sea village of Port Fairy some four hours west of Melbourne Australia. Listening Through The Lens will be running a full story once the event has wrapped up.

But for now we will be running a series of articles on our favourite images from each day.
