Ma Ma Creek Community Centre, Qld, Jagera Country
The Ma Ma Community Centre stands on lands traditionally owned by the Jagera People
It’s been a hot minute since Festival of Small Halls has rolled into the Lockyer Valley – and Ma Ma Creek is in the hot seat! Or rather, the fresh, flowing green seat – this rural community takes its name from the creek that runs through it – which, despite being over 100 kilometres from the coast, has a pair of nesting sea eagles on the creek bank!
Ma Ma Creek Community Centre is the hub of the local community and it is home to the annual Ma Ma Creek Exhibition, this year hosting the 85th edition of the Exhibition. The Community Centre is the second iteration of this gathering place, after the first sadly burnt down. The new Ma Ma Creek Community Centre is located on the original site of the Ma Ma Creek School – across the road from a small church lovely enough to merit a road trip all on its own, and a Historic General Store – both over 100 years old!
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Ma Ma Creek on Tuesday, 30th November 2021 with Andrea Kirwin and Tullara.
Opening the show will be local act Troy Troutman!
If you require a seasoned musician with an ability to entertain an audience,Troy Troutman is exactly that, he is professional and his experience has helped him to develop a unique style of guitar playing that puts him in another category. The song list is made up of many different styles, this makes him able to cater for a wide range of tastes. His ability to read the crowd and interact musically is something that only comes with experience. This skill enables the audience to feel like they are part of the entertainment. He has performed at Woodford Folk Festival with Kev Carmody and Toured Queensland and the Northern Territory with Seaman Dan, an artist from the Torres Straits. Every Sunday there is a Jam session at the Lockyer Hotel in Forest Hill and he has been hosting that for some time now. Troy has performed around Queensland and New South Wales for many years and this experience has allowed him to develop a style of performing that is like no other.
Catering will be provided by volunteers from the Ma Ma Creek Community Centre kitchen. Options will include nachos and sausage sizzle before concert and possibly cakes/slices with coffee/tea in interval.
Ma Ma Creek Community Centre will be providing a bar from 6:30 p.m. to close. They will be selling beer, wine, pre-mix cans and softdrink and water.
