Laharum Hall, VIC, Wotjobaluk Country
Laharum Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Wotjobaluk People.
With a majestic outlook across the Grampians it’s little wonder Laharum Community Hall, 20 minutes south of Horsham, is known as ‘a hall with a view’.
What makes this small hall a great venue for gigs though is what’s inside; musicians love the hall’s wonderful natural acoustics as much as an audience.
Also inside you’ll find a mural depicting the history of the area, which is steeped in gold rush history, along with some of the locals’ legendary hospitality.
The region also has a rich Indigenous heritage – neighbouring ranges have the largest number of Aboriginal rock art sites in southern Australia.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Laharum on Saturday, 19 March 2022 with Jack Carty and Charm of Finches.
Opening the show will be local act Peter McGennisken!
Peter McGennisken has always had a keen interest in music which is reflected in his playing for dance bands since the age of 15. Piano tuition in primary school, formed a basis for teaching himself guitar, which he now utilises as his main instrument. His main musical styles of interest are country, country rock and rock which he has played covers for at dances, cabarets, weddings and clubs. With Covid interrupting his band playing, Peter has found time to revisit some originals of his own, which he will include in his Festival of Small Halls performance at Laharum.
