MUNGO PARK MUSIC
Mungo Park Music is a company which organises and promotes live performances of The Robert Louis Stevenson Show in Australia and overseas, and presents annually a number of acoustic concerts by touring artists from around the world at the home venue in Victoria.
Mungo Park Music concerts are held in the former tractor shed affectionately known as The Great Hall of the People, at Mungo Park, in Newlyn North, Victoria. Neil and Judy have renovated it as a great venue for music performances and recording, workshops of many sorts and other community events, and they love to welcome people to this part of their home. Intimate concerts (up to 60) and sessions segue seamlessly to create a warm and welcoming musical environment, where everyone is close to the musicians, and the concerts are acoustic and ‘unplugged’. As musicians themselves, they prefer to play to small crowds and completely acoustically, without PA, and that is what they now recreate for audiences at Mungo Park. Concerts are sporadic, and include music already known from friends and fellow folkies, as well as stuff that’s been recommended to them. Crowds consist of many local people, but increasingly also include many who have come from further afield for the experience. The venue is about 90 minutes from Melbourne (on a bad day) and the area is highly attractive, 15 minutes from Daylesford with many opportunities for accommodation. Many audience members have booked into a B'nB and stayed locally.
