The Sunshine Coast performing arts community is rallying for an important conservation cause on Saturday 13 June 2015, with two of our region's rising stars – Sam Shepherd and Dear Willow - presenting a community concert in support of Queensland Koala Crusaders Inc.
Koalas are an iconic species, but are at risk of localised extinction on the Sunshine Coast, which was once a stronghold for them. Community support is needed to create awareness of the threats to the koala, to activate local koala conservation initiatives and promote education about our unique fauna more broadly.
Sam is a Maleny resident, and was honoured as a finalist in the prestigious international 'Six String Theory' guitar competition in 2014. It is one of the biggest guitar competitions in the world – founded by legendary guitarist Lee Ritenour - with thousands of entries from 48 different countries. Sam was the only Australian to make the finals. He has also been a top 5 finalist in the Tamworth Golden Guitar awards.
"Dear Willow" is the alter ego of Sunshine Coast singer/song-writer EmJ Dau. Her original songs stem from poetic lyrics and melodies with both depth and strong 'sing-along' hooks. Her single "Father's House" was released in April 2015 and supported by an acoustic tour of South East Queensland.
Queensland Koala Crusaders will be utilising concert proceeds to contribute to delivering on-the-ground projects at a local level. Tickets are $25 per person, and further information and ticket purchases can be accessed via www.koalacrusaders.org.au
The event is also kindly supported by Noosa Arts Theatre and Sunspace Café, Doonan.
