Neurum Creek Music Festival

My next show is at Neurum Creek Music Festival. I’m playing around 12.30pm on SATURDAY 13 SEPT.

Neurum Creek Music Festival is a local acoustic music camping weekend held at Neurum Creek Bush Retreat in September each year. The 2014 festival will be held on the weekend of the 12, 13, and 14 September.

Other artists on the 2014 festival include: The Company, The Jar, Cloudstreet, The Poachers, Rebecca Wright and Donald Mackay, Steve Tyson and the New Felons, Stockade and more.

The festival aims to provide an atmosphere of community and inclusion for the south-east corner of Queensland by showcasing the established and up and coming talents of this corner of the world, as well as featuring acts from around Australia.

The main festival area (stage and bar) incorporates a magnificent old tree, atmospherically lit at night. You may wish to bring your own chair or picnic blanket for the concerts.

Those Bloody McKennas: “Wow!…no mistaking that Those Bloody McKennas are a feel-good band…make the audience feel a bit lighter on their feet and in their spirits. Those Bloody McKennas are one of those bands that you have to see at least once, if only to expand your idea of what is possible. The fact that you might have the time of your life is merely a bonus.” – JESSE SHROCK – LIVE REVIEW – BEAT Magazine

CHANEL LUCAS: Warm, pure vocals and gentle folk guitar are Chanel’s signature sound. Her music allows you to stop and take a breath, and enjoy the moments outside of the busy day-to-day. A writer and songwriter, she has travelled across the world with folk-pop act ‘women in docs.’ Recently, she has been learning to play the ukulele and writing songs for a solo project. www.chanellucas.com or www.facebook.com/chanellucasmusic

NOTE: this venue is near Suncorp Stadium and (since we booked it) the Broncos have scheduled a 3pm game on this day. We recommend catching a train to either Milton Station (short walk around stadium to Caxton St) OR Roma St Station (slightly longer walk through Barracks and straight down Caxton St) to get to venue. Or take a bus to Caxton St. 🙂
