Eudlo, 21 July 2024

Eudlo Hall, QLD, Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi Country

Eudlo Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi People.

Eudlo’s beautiful hall is the third iteration of this historic institution, built by volunteers in the 1950’s from timber milled at Olsen’s sawmill. In the heart of old logging country, Eudlo farmers regularly collected trophies at the Ekka for their artistic displays of locally grown fruit including pineapples, strawberries and bananas. In more recent years, Eudlo Hall has become known for hosting a regular stream of music and arts events supported by passionate volunteers who pride themselves on the quality of their baking!

Eudlo is a small village with a big heart which gathers locals and visitors alike around a compact centre which includes two local cafes, tennis club, train station, parks, school and rural fire brigade plus a community hall and recreation grounds. Eudlo Hall has come a long way from the first hall built in 1895 and now boasts an electric car charging station for public use.

Festival of Small Halls returns to Eudlo on Sunday, 21 July 2024 with Quote The Raven and Hailey Calvert.

Opening the show will be local act Chris Cobb!

Chris’ earliest introduction to music came from listening to his uncles playing local PNG music in a string band in Bulolo, Morobe Province. An early highlight of his young career was performing with the popular East New Britain group ‘Barike Band’ for a solid 5 years (2008 – 2013). Following that he went out on his own as a solo artist in PNG, mostly performing live music in some of Port Moresby’s top venues.

On his musical journey he has written original music, performed in PNG vocal competitions, performed as a cover artist at venues across PNG and also developed a small business helping other emerging PNG artists to perform professionally.

In September 2023 he came to the Sunshine Coast with his family and has since decided that he’d like to call Australia home for a while. Chris’s music often draws on the traditional sounds and rhythms of PNG – fusing it with more contemporary sounds to create a universally appealing sound.

There will be tea, coffee, and delicious homemade cakes, as well as a bar providing beer, wine and cider from 3.30pm until the end of the show.
