Free Music Event August – Park Sounds

Harriet Wensley

Put Sunday 28 August in your diary for a very special PARK SOUNDS fundraiser event at Dick Caplick Park Eumundi, to help a young local musician who needs our support. The music magic will be happening from 1pm – 4pm with a great line-up featuring young local musicians R & J Duo, Harriet Wensley, Staple, Marshall Hamburger Band, and the awesome Ampersand.

Each act is donating payment for their performance to assist a young local musician, Madison, and her family. Madison, an amazing 12-year-old bass player and singer, was recently involved in a serious car accident with her mum and little sister. Both Madison and her mum sustained serious injuries and are facing a significant road to recovery. 

Students from Madison’s music school, Hamburger Music Productions, have decided they are going to help, so have joined forces with The Imperial Hotel Eumundi to present what will be a very special PARK SOUNDS.

So pack your picnic rug and chairs for this fabulous afternoon of FREE live music in Dick Caplick Park, right in the centre of town in Eumundi. All monies raised (including artist fees) will be passed to the family to assist them with their long recovery. 

The event will be filmed on the day, so that Madison can see and feel the well wishes and support of the community.
