The Spotted Mallard is holding a fundraiser to assist with the current devastation across Victoria and Australia by bushfires which have displaced so many. Many at the venue and within our music community know someone impacted by the disaster, and we fear things will just get worse. We want to help, show our support and raise funds by bringing together some of Melbourne's most loved musicians to donate their time and talent, who will be playing short sets from the arvo in to the evening.
The line up on Saturday 25th January includes Mick Thomas, The Orbweavers, Angie Hart, Charles Jenkins & The Zhivagos, Sarah Carroll with Shannon Bourne, Pollyman, Opelousas, Hollie Joyce, Hamish Cowan (Cordrazine), Dominic Byrne (Little Red), Skyscraper Stan, Dan Warner, Sime Nugent, Brooke Russell, Ruby Jones, Lisa Miller with Shane O’Mara, The Dusty Millers, Dirt Hand, Les Thomas, The Pheasantry and Ten Gallon Head plus MC Jane Clifton.
All money raised from tickets and silent auctions, as well as a percentage from the bar will be donated to to the CFA (Country Fire Authority), the Bushfire Disaster Appeal and Red Cross.
