Mt Mee Hall, QLD, Jinibara Country
Mt Mee Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Jinibara People.
A drive up to Mount Mee is likely to be slow, your vehicle crawling along the roads as you crane your neck to try to safely check out the breath-taking views of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Take in the spectacular panorama of all of the Glass House Mountains, across the blue seas to Moreton Island or into the hazy western ranges, the sky a backdrop to the lazily drifting chimney smoke of the smug locals of this area. Mount Mee was settled into the township recognizable today on the back of red cedar timber getters, who transformed thick forests into the swooping, dipping green tufted hills that give Mount Mee the impression of having been created by a Hollywood set designer for the scene: Perfect Country Drive. It has a church that makes you want to get a married, a restaurant that makes three courses seem like too few, and a community set in a location that makes Brigadoon seem churlish and dull.
Festival of Small Halls returns to Mt Mee on Wednesday, 16 November 2022 with Inn Echo and Sam Buckingham.
Opening the show will be local act Gabrielle Kerr!
Gabrielle Kerr speaks truths. The young raconteur is an old soul watching this new world spin. Her introspective lyrics will draw you in as she crows with hints of blues, folk and rock in the songbird’s melodies, telling tales of life, death and all things in between. She shares the dark cynicism of Hozier, is inspired by the blues rock jams of Kaleo and Elle King, and has the powerful lyricism of Aurora. No stranger to the stage, she’s performed at festivals such as the Tamworth Country Music Festival, the Urban Festival and the Gympie Music Muster. Her debut EP, The Truth of Flowers, is available on all platforms.
“It would be easy to mistake her as someone who’s been releasing music for decades.” – Blank GC
