Mary musicians cut water CD
- launch August 3 @ Kandanga Hotel
THE campaign to stop the damming of the Mary River takes a new turn next week with the launch of a multi-artist CD of songs and poems proclaiming its importance to the people of the Mary Valley, from the Conondales all the way to Hervey Bay.
Demo copies of the CD aptly named "For the Love of Mary" will be handed to media, and organiser Tony Hawkyard is keen to see their response.
"This is another way of reaching people," the Save the Mary River Coordinating group member said.
The launch takes place at the Kandanga Hotel in Kandanga, at 7pm on August 3.
A total of 22 items are listed on the CD, all original works created by local artists inspired by the Mary and its impending fate at the hands of the Queensland Government.
Brooloo vet Steve Dennis has included "Mary must never be dammed" and Kenilworth poet Ian Mackay's challenging verse "The Dreaming" are among items, as well as contributions from signwriter and sculptor Keith Gall, Sunshine Coast band Cut Snakes, Curra's Vic Lanyon and Bella Creek resident Don Gibbs who has penned a blues song.
Mr Hawkyard said all money collected from the sale of the CD will go to the Save the Mary River fighting fund to help the group mount a legal challenge against the Beattie Government's flawed Traveston Crossing proposal.
The group has a target of $500,000.
