They reckon you just get better with age and Music on the Hill, hosted on the first Friday of every month at the Red Hill Pavilion sure holds true to this theory.
September sees this community-focused event turning one and celebrating with several artists who have graced the MOTH stage over 12 months of operation.
Confirmed artists so far are Charles Jenkins, Rob Snarski, James Kenyon, Al Parkinson, Tobias Hengeveld, Jackson McLaren and Cookie Baker.
(Entry to this event will firstly be open to MOTH members and then to the public at large.)
Robin Griffiths talks. “MOTH has been going from strength to strength.
“We’ve had a real cross section of well-known and up and coming artists play like Fraser A. Gorman, who launched his debut album in July and included Red Hill in his Australia-wide tour and Shane Nicholson – who will be playing Friday August 7, with support from The Weeping Willows and locals Trudi and the Saturday Cowboys.”
MOTH musicians are mainly acoustic solo or duo performers and the night always gets going with a peninsula artist because MOTH is fully committed to highlighting local talent.
Subdued lighting and fabulous sound quality enhance the already unique Red Hill atmosphere.
Watch out for established artists such as Andy White from Northern Ireland, Suzannah Espie, The Yearlings from South Australia, Ben Salter, and David Bridie and Sally Seltman from LA appearing over the next few months.
All proceeds go to the artists and hiring of equipment.
