Music at Mona

Let local musical talent serenade / subject you to light entertainment while you’re eating your veggie burger. Good luck with that.

If the weather’s nice, the music is on the lawns. If it’s crap, it’s inside the museum. Don’t miss musicians-in-residence Ben Salter and Danny Healy performing live in their museum studios each day.

SATURDAY 14 MAY

Who? What? When? Where?

Who? What? When? Where?
Spike Mason

 

Spike's been playing the sax since before the internet was invented. Or so he'd have you believe. Rumour has it it's been even longer than that. 2–4PM Mona Lawns

 

SUNDAY 15 MAY

Who? What? When? Where?

Stickrad Quintet

 

Led by Konrad Park (playing a 'Chapman Stick', which looks like a guitar that got distracted doing something important), this high-energy musical collision also features bassoon, bass clarinet, cello, and skins. 12–2PM Mona Lawns

 

Who? What? When? Where?
Tasmanian Heritage Fiddle Ensemble (Emily Wolfe) Mason

MONDAY 16 MAY

Who? What? When? Where?

Rudy Marshall

 

Rudy has dedicated his life to healing—in many forms—but mostly through singing and songwriting. He's good for what ails you. 12–2PM Mona Lawns

 

Who? What? When? Where?

 

Seth Henderson

 

Playful cheek and gentle burns from one of Tassie's finer folk folks. Appearing with a full band, which is fun. 2–4PM Mona Lawns

 

FRIDAY 20 MAY

Who? What? When? Where?

DE SAINT (Kel Elsom)

 

Smooth, funky soul and blues, plus future daytime-disco classics from a DJ-vocalist extraordinaire. 12–2PM Mona Lawns

 

Who? What? When? Where?

 

Q.E.

 

Aphex-meets-pop stylings featuring hundreds of voice memos, field recordings and noise generators, somehow mashed together into coherent songs. Tom Robb will also be around, doing Tom Robbish things (like drumming, and electronic stuff). 2–4PM Mona Lawns

Janelle Stowe

 

Janelle—multi-instrumentalist (piano, trumpet) and vocalist—is joined by Brendon on guitar for some jazzy jazz. 12–2PM Mona Lawns
