2015 has been a stellar year for Music on the Hill (MOTH). Originally created by two Red Hill locals, the idea was to bring musical talent to a discerning audience in an intimate environment where the music is the focus and the artists are listened to.

 

“We wanted it to be a place that we wanted to go out to on a Friday night, where the music is the focus and the artists are listened to and you don’t have to wait until 10pm for the artists to play to a distracted audience,” says Robin Griffiths who now runs the community-focused event with the Red Hill sports clubs.

 

National and international touring and recording singer–songwriters are brought to Red Hill on the first Friday of every month. MOTH are also committed to showcasing peninsula-based musicians, and a local act always opens the night.

 

MOTH is hosted by the Red Hill Sports Clubs and proceeds go to the artists, the hiring of equipment and local community initiatives. It takes a team of 15 volunteers to make the show happen and members of the audience often put the artists up in Red Hill so they can wake up on the peninsula and enjoy all it has to offer.

 

Local artists that have played this year include Brendan Mellere, Heidi Luckhurst, Tim Stout, Paul Dillon and Trudy and the Saturday Cowboys. “We have gone from strength to strength and artists are now contacting us because they enjoy playing to our attentive audience,” says Robin. Several artists have even included MOTH on their national album launch tours, including Shane Nicholson, Fraser A. Gorman and Suzannah Espie.

 

The highlight of the year was the MOTH first birthday show in September featuring 14 artists that returned to Red Hill and played three songs each, including Rob Snarski, Lisa Miller, Shane O’Mara and James Kenyon. Proceeds went towards buying equipment and also to a scholarship for a deserving Dromana College music student. 

 

Friday 4 December will feature Melbourne’s The Mae Trio and Broads with Mount Martha and Bank of Melbourne Music Bank 2015 finalist Sam O’Connell, who opens at 7.30pm. The first Friday in January is New Years Day and Rob Snarski will be returning to MOTH for ‘Recovery with Rob’, supported by local songstress Madeleine Duke.
