Summer sounds good at Emerald Lake Park

Published: 4 February 2019

The Summer Music Series 2019 has started, with local artists Clint Wilson and The Velvet Valley kicking off the series last weekend at Emerald Lake Park.

Clint Wilson and the Velvet Valley brought their own brand of country, folk and Americana to Emerald Lake Park, with a great song set and music that told a distinctly Australian story.

Join the fun with Summer Music Series 2019 at Emerald Lake Park Bandstand from 12.30–3pm every Sunday in February:

Sunday 10 February – Cardinia Civic Concert Band

The Cardinia Civic Concert Band will be performing a wide variety of music suitable for all ages. Originally formed in the late 1880s the band has since grown and diversified into a group of talented musicians who all share a genuine love of music and giving engaging performances across a variety of genres.

Sunday 17 February: Babaganoush.

Babaganoush play the best mix of Gypsy, Balkan Beats & Greek folk music. Their spicy melodies, hot rhythms and fiery vocals are mesmerizing. Their sound is sensuous and intoxicating, created by an exquisite combination of violin, clarinet, piano accordion, bass, percussion & bouzouki.

Great to dance to, they delight audiences everywhere. From the Spiegeltent to Europe’s liveliest bars to Australia’s best music festivals, Babaganoush have ventured the world music circuit in full swing.

Sunday 24 February: Rich Davies and The Low Road

Rich Davies and The Low Road will finish the series with a foot-stomping contemporary folk attack.

With a poet's heart and rocker's soul, Rich Davies & The Low Road deliver a “foot-stomping contemporary folk attack” (Mick Thomas). The Golden Guitar 2018 nominee has been hailed as “The Pogues meets Springsteen”.

Every Sunday in February – Drum circles by Positive Music

Positive Music brings drum circles to Summer Music Series once more with an array of fun and colourful traditional hand drums and small percussion instruments. People will get the opportunity to make their own music from 12.30–3pm at Emerald Lake Park close to the Bandstand. No experience necessary but enthusiasm is a must!
