The Cooran Acoustic Night is rolling around again on Saturday October 13th.  One can only guess what the musical and artistic treats the mid-Spring evening will bring through the door.

The 1st of September gig drew a performance list as diverse as it gets.  From highlander clad pag-pipe players, six piece bands, Mountain Music School students donning electric guitars, a full size harpist, didgeridoo, to the talents of young Noosa solo artist Nathan Kahl.  Nathan filled the stage with a smooth voice and bluesy steel string guitar.  “Tonight is an opportunity for me to practice before I have a go on the blackboard stage at Caloundra Music Festival,” he said.  “There’s nothing else quite like this,” Graham of the Mountain Music School admitted.  “The Cooran Acoustic Night has been going for so long, and it provides the space for emerging artists to build confidence and give it a go.”  

The Cooran Acoustic Night attracts a great mix of surprising amatuer and professional artists to the intimate Cooran School of Arts Hall stage.  Adorned with red velvet curtains and with the aromas of a delicious and affordable organic cafe, for an evening of surprising talent in the intimate Cooran Hall (King Street), the Cooran Acoustic Night is consistently special.

The Cooran Acoustic Night is your community’s creative showcase evening.  Only $4 entry puts you in the mix for the lucky door prize.  Come 7pm sharp to scrawl your name of the board... a friendly crowd will always applaud!

Nominations are open for coordinators in 2013. Step out & step up.


About the Cooran Acoustic Night

The Cooran Acoustic Night is a community run event which has occurred continuously every four to six weeks for more than 20 years.  The Acoustic Night is held in the Cooran School of Arts Hall and boasts an organic cafe serving warm drinks, light meals and dessert.  The event is run voluntarily and is an important gathering in the hinterland, drawing people from the surrounding areas of Kin Kin, Boreen Point, Pomona and the Mary Valley.  

Each Cooran Acoustic Night presents an opportunity for amateurs and professionals alike to warm the stage with creative performances, primarily in music, but also in dance, circus and spoken word.  A sound technician operates lighting and amplification equipment and an MC generates audience support for all who contribute to the evenings entertainment.  The chalkboard always attracts a mix of experienced entertainers and the raw charms of those who might be performing for the first time.  In this way, the Cooran Acoustic Night is a valuable institution in for emerging artists in the area, particularly young people.  It is a family friendly event, alcohol free and always attracts a responsible and attentive crowd.

Cooran is a relatively small community and the Acoustic Night remains one of few community events where residents come together in a regular and celebratory way.
