A night at Mimburi with Neil Murray

Now I can add Rock Concert promoter to my CV!!

On the 1st of May, Neil Murray (founding member of the Warumpi Band, songwriter – My Island Home) played a concert at Mimburi, a 400 hectare property on the Mary River, Belli Park, with close to 100 people attending.  It was an amazing night with an amazing talent.  What started with Rain and Thunder (moomba), an amazing Welcome to Country by Aunty Beverly Hand and family, finished with an all in dance to My Island Home, complete with shake a leg. Neil was joined on drums by the multi-talented artist, Peter Hudson.

Through my network of contacts, I was able to organise this opportunity and present it to Aunty Beverly Hand, who straight away said “Go on then”.  The night came together easily with the help of community organisations like Kabbarli, the Maleny-Mimburi Connections, Mimburi Upper Mary Aboriginal Association and YindiArtz.  Michael Hand worked like a trojan horse to prepare the site for the evening.  Monies raised on the night enable Mimburi to continue to run the property and provide a space and programs for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
