Koah, 4 Dec 2019


Fringed by sweeping grass trees, you will find Koah Hall nestled in Musumeci Park, 15 minutes’ easy drive from Kuranda Village and the Barron Gorge. We’re ready and keen for the Small Halls event, having honed our community action skills with various projects and workshops, from a Bring-your-washboard Bushdance, Christmas in July festivities, to local music and circus events and a monthly market. Check out our Facebook page and photos, and our 5-star reviews! Koah Hall’s relaxed setting and family friendly facilities is a growing hub for our diverse community of folk, families and farmers…a place for all.

Population: 576

This includes the indigenous first peoples of the area and those who have come from various parts of Australia and the world.

Koah Hall stands on land traditionally owned by the Tjapukai and Bulwai people.


Festival of Small Halls rolls into Koah on Wednesday, 4th of December with Blair Dunlop (ENG) and Hat Fitz and Cara (AUS).

Festival of Small Halls Koah will be supported by Blue Reed Gypsy Swing.
Swing and Fire are some of the emotions you will encounter while enjoying the songs from this gypsy swing trio.

Holding down the low end on double bass is Dave Hart, a seasoned performer in the Cairns region for so many years we forgot to count them.  Dave is also a member of iconic Cairns bands ‘Snake Gully’ and ‘Hot & Wet Swing Set’.
Steve Baker 1st guitar, all-round good guy and champion for the Arts in all their forms.  Steve is an accomplished singer songwriter and also a core member pf the Tablelands gypsy swing band, ‘Django in the Djungle’.
David Breeze 2nd guitar, a guitarist for all seasons.  David has played with some of Cairns’ most loved acts,  including Paris Texas Far Northern Soul Collective,  Hot Rubber Glove and Hot & Wet Swing Set & raconteurs.
Blue Reed play gypsy swing in the style of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.   Sometimes fast and furious like the Captain Cook Highway on a Friday afternoon, or slow and seductive like the lazy Barron River on a Sunday afternoon.  In the repertoire you will also find some classics as and well known tunes given the gypsy swing touch.
