Moreton Bay Live & Local Micro-Festival is employing 50 music makers showcasing in 11 venues across the Moreton Bay region over 2 jam-packed days as part of the innovative program invigorating the creative economy.
Moreton Bay is ready to shine with its addition to the series of five SEQ north regions delivering a Live & Local program lead by the Creative Arts Alliance (CAA) and supported locally by the Moreton Bay Regional Council.
Live & Local Project Lead Emily Murphy said “The aim is to connect music makers with venues keen to present original, live music both now and into the future.”
As well performance opportunities, Live & Local is connecting all musicians from the region and any interested venues with two days of free, high-quality professional development delivered in partnership with Queensland’s peak body, QMusic.
“Live and Local is a unique project that combines the strategic connections of our national partners the Live Music Office and APRA/AMCOS and state partners QMusic with deeply localised knowledge of council and our music industry. These powerful connections are exactly the building blocks needed for the Moreton Bay to build a sustainable music industry” said Creative Arts Alliance Chair, Phil Smith.
Moreton Bay’s Live & Local has been driven by local emerging curator Amy Kate Bryant through a popular EOI process and in deep consultation with both existing and new music venues.
Ms Bryant says: “As an artist myself, to be able to engage with businesses to celebrate and promote original music has been really great.”
“Through the work we are doing, we are also bringing music and activating spaces that aren’t traditionally known for hosting live work so it’s been exciting to nurture those relationships and it will be so rewarding to see the regions alive with people’s voices proudly celebrating their local areas.” she said.
The Moreton Bay Live & Local Micro-Festival gigs are family friendly, absolutely free and no bookings are required; however, there is limited seating so early arrival is recommended.
You can expect to see pop-up gigs across Samford Village on Saturday October 30, as well as Dayboro and Brendale on Saturday November 6, featuring 31 different acts from soloists to bands.
