They’re back – with original stories and songs, lyrics, harmonies and magical musical musings at the Westernport Yacht Club in Balnarring where it all originally kicked off. 

The Balnarring Muso Nights, that is. Now called Peninsula SongRiders, these ripper monthly Sunday showcase sessions organised and promoted by MP Music Network president and singer/songwriter Marty Nelson-Williams will have you cruising to the sound of outstanding local and not-so-local talent. And there’s lots of it. 

Just imagine – all against the backdrop of the beautiful Balnarring Beach coastline too.
Marty talks. “There’s going to be two acts per session to really showcase each artist. Sets are 40 to 50 minutes long. July 16 saw a near sellout crowd launch proceedings with Luck Louise and Mijo Biscan performing. It’s great to be back at the Westernport Yacht Club. Lots of great memories. Now to make some more!”

Marty is keen to mix more experienced singer-songwriters with those who don’t have such high profiles. Community comes first as far as he’s concerned. “These sessions are about bringing everyone together – audience, artists – all at an affordable price (under-16s are free). They are completely family-friendly events. It’s all about developing a community spirit, and barbecue food’s on from 1pm.”

So lock it in, folks. Cousin Leonard are playing a Farewell to Europe gig with Ben Cornell (Slow Motion Pictures) on August 13. September 3 sees Tommy Spender and an exciting yet-to-be-confirmed act, and October 1 sees “The Wiz” Andrew Farrell, Thomas Hugh and Shannon Bourne. 

“This is just the beginning. Stay tuned for the summer program which is in development. Once we (Cousin Leonard) finish our oversees tour, I’ll be on to it.” 

Tickets can be purchased at Just type in “pensongriders” to catch a ride. 

The tide of local music talent is rising high.
