It won’t quite be Norman Lindsay but it’s a party in a garden – nevertheless.

We’d like to make the MITCH 2018 Summer concert a celebration of nature – of gardens and enjoying the good life under our blue sky.

As well as the surprising music program, we’re adding even more fizz and fun to the already hugely pleasurable interval wine and nibbles. You’ll need to come along to find out more…

To help us celebrate we’ve asked The Wild Bunch to bring party time to “Rocklands”, the wonderful garden and grounds of Gary and Pan Prendergast’s home at Redesdale. The Wild Bunch is a New Orleans-style Traditional Jazz Band featuring musicians from the Macedon Ranges.  The ‘party band’ plays repertoire that resounds with the musical traditions of the Crescent City — from Spirituals, Blues and Gospel to Boogie, Rock n Roll, RnB, Swamp, Zydeco, Cajun and a little Country.

The group is proud to be representing the Macedon Ranges Music Collective(MRMC) — a not-for-profit community music organisation comprised of musicians and music lovers in our community.  Like MITCH, MRMC creates opportunities for young musicians to perform live in the Macedon Ranges. Sophie Cox (guitar) and Kaity Secker (voice) will be the featured young musicians.

Booking is now available through Trybooking. Go here to book your seat under the gigantic oak trees and to find out how to get there.

We look forward to welcoming you on Sunday February 18 2018 for a 2.30 start to the concert.

Get there at 2.00 pm to explore the wonderful garden.

It has only been a year since our last Summer Concert but I’m sure that those of you that attended will not forget that eventful afternoon.

As we were about to begin the concert, the rain that had been threatening to fall, suddenly eventuated. Gary Prendergast, our unflappable co host fired up his tractor and tray and, as if by magic, our audience loaded chairs, music instruments and sound system. Within 15 minutes, we were cosily installed in his enormous shed.

The Session Trio, now far more famous than then, played a concert rich in sound and emotion. Kenny’s guitar transported many of the baby boomers back to their teenage years.

Liz Frencham and Robbie Melville, played a skilful set that thrilled the audience with their brave improvisations.

In between the sets, the rain also took a break and the audience enjoyed Hanging Rock wines and fingerfood on the expansive deck. Some took the opportunity to check out the golf course putting green and the Campaspe River views. A magic day.

This year, the venue will be the same, the weather will be fine and the music will be hot jazz and blues provided by the Macedon Ranges Music Collective with featured soloists.
