CAMBOOYA HALL, QLD, WESTERN WAKKA WAKKA, GAIBUL, AND JARROWAIR COUNTRY
The Cambooya Hall stands on the traditional lands of the the Western Wakka Wakka (wok-ah-wok-ah), Gaibul (guy-ah-bull) and Jarrowair (jar-oh-wah) peoples.
Cambooya Hall is a beautiful hall that has just had an extensive revamp and wants to welcome the community back through the doors. Cambooya is the best of both city and country living, being just 20 minutes south of Toowoomba. Home of the Bull’n’Barley Inn and a huge tourist attraction for sunflower lovers, Cambooya is perfect for a Sunday drive… but if you’re heading out on a Tuesday, beware, you have to book a table at the pub on ‘Two for Tuesday’ as it’s T-Bone night.
Local knowledge required? The Hall is on the corner of Gore Street NOT over the highway (Harrow Street south) as that does confuse people.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Cambooya Friday 29 October 2021 with Darren Hanlon and Kelly Brouhaha.
Opening the show will be local act Maggie Elysse!
Maggie Elysse is a singer-songwriter from Toowoomba, who can often be found performing covers and originals from behind her piano, guitar, or the microphone in the recording studio. Her songwriting is an infectiously melodic blend of indie-pop with heartfelt lyrics. Maggie Elysse released her debut EP album, Take Me Away, in late 2018 under her former artist name, Meg Beth – now available on various platforms including Spotify and iTunes.
Success with several major songwriting prizes for young artists over the past few years has spurred her passion for music. She was awarded a coveted spot in the Big Sky Girls Songwriting mentorship program in 2018 and was named the overall winner of the USQ Get Songwriting prize in both 2018 and 2019. Maggie Elysse has studied with songwriting masters such as Pat Pattison, professor of lyric writing and poetry at Berklee College of Music, Mark Sholtez, acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter and music educator, and Francesca de Valence, Australian artist, award-winning songwriter, speaker, and founder & CEO of I Heart Songwriting Club.
Maggie Elysse pinpoints the struggles of her teenage years and the hardships of multiple moves throughout her school years as inspiration for her songwriting. “Songwriting always helps me through the hard times,” she says. “I like channelling all my emotions into music.”
