Emu Park, 14 July 2024

Emu Park Cultural Hall, QLD, Darumbal Country

Emu Park Cultural Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Darumbal People.

The Emu Park Cultural Hall is centrally located in the middle of the seaside township of Emu Park. Famously known for the iconic singing ship, Emu Park is a quaint but vibrant village that boasts picturesque parks and crystal blue waters. The Emu Park Cultural Hall is home to many community groups and its walls could tell some amazing historical and hilarious stories since it was built in 1976. 

Festival of Small Halls returns to Emu Park on Sunday, 14 July 2024 with Quote The Raven and Hailey Calvert.

Opening the show will be local act Kate Mahood!

Blending folk stylings and country storytelling, Kate Mahood’s songs portray an honesty and vulnerability that resonate deeply with her listeners. Heartfelt and often haunting lyrics coupled with stirring vocals and beautifully crafted guitar melodies, give Mahood a unique and original sound that is truly her own.

Growing up with artists like Neil Young, Gillian Welch and Paul Kelly on high rotation, this self-taught guitarist & songwriter refined her craft for over ten years before ever taking to the stage. Best known for her captivating and intimate live shows, Mahood has made regular appearances at festivals such as Agnes Blues and Roots Festival and Wintermoon Folk Festival and and opened for artists including Busby Marou, Harry Manx, The Whitlams, Alex Lloyd and Amber Lawrence.

Mahood’s much anticipated debut single ‘Man Of Honour’ was released in 2022 followed by ‘Silver and Gold’ (2022), ‘Changeling’ (2023) and ‘Not Afraid Of The Dark’ (2023). Her most recent release ‘Little Finch’ (2024), an ode to the beauty of nature and humanity’s impact upon it, promises to further unveil the regional singer-songwriter to a wider audience around the world. Mahood is currently based in the coastal town of Yeppoon, Queensland.
