Sandy Point Music

A group of interested residents have banded together to form Sandy Point Music. Their aim is to enhance the village atmosphere of Sandy Point by organising regular events at the Community Centre.

The plan is to encompass different styles of music to cater for different ages and groups with the main focus on having social and fun evenings and also encouraging /supporting live music locally.

As a result of running such events, the club makes a small profit with the proceeds being donated to worthy causes with some local connection. Recent donations have gone to the South Gippsland Hospital, the Fish Creek Primary School music program and the Sandy Point Community Group, for projects such as the installation of a 24 hour defibrillator cabinet.

Sandy Point Music would love to hear from people with ideas and “special requests” for future events. For more information please email

Multi-award-winning Melbourne contemporary folk outfit, The Maes (formerly The Mae Trio) is the brainchild of sisters Maggie and Elsie Rigby. Born into the arms of the Folk music community in Australia, both sisters were side of stage at their first folk festival when they were four weeks old and have been absorbing and exploring folk music since that time.

The Maes’ latest, self-titled record released in April 2019 is a return to the sisters’ folk music roots. Gentle, intimate and conversational, the album is an unadorned showcase of Maggie and Elsie’s superb songwriting as well as honest, relaxed and stunning vocal and instrumental performances.

The album features production from top roots music producers from around the world including, Daniel Ledwell (Oh Pep!, Jenn Grant, Good Lovelies), John Fitzgerald (Christy Moore, Crooked Still, Lisa Hannigan) and Brendon Love (Teskey Brothers). The album also features cello and harmony vocals by award-winning Brisbane musician, Monique Clare who regularly tours with The Maes.

Since 2014, The Maes have been full time touring in Australia and overseas, winning over audiences with their striking songwriting, intricate instrumental arrangements and stunning vocal harmonies. The band’s touring history includes a list of some of the worlds largest and most prestigious music festivals such as, the Woodford and Port Fairy Folk Festivals in Australia, The Edmonton and Vancouver Folk Festivals in Canada, Cambridge Folk and Celtic Connections festivals in the UK and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in the USA.

Beloved Australian singer, songwriter and guitarist Mia Dyson has announced a special upcoming release to coincide with the 15-year anniversary of her highly acclaimed album Parking Lots. Set to be released Friday 4 December, the Parking Lots (Revisited) EP will feature five completely reimagined tracks from the album, stripped to their core and dressed again, with new arrangements, special guest appearances and additional nuances, all reapproached through Dyson’s highly considered idiosyncratic lens. To celebrate the occasion, Mia has reissued the original album with a limited run of white vinyl and has announced a 2021 east coast headline tour that will see her perform all 11 tracks off Parking Lots from start to finish.

In her two-decade long career, Mia Dyson has been nominated for five ARIA Awards with Parking Lots taking out ‘Best Blues and Roots Album’ in 2005. She was the inaugural recipient of Double J’s Artist Of The Year at the 2014 J Awards following the release of her Australian classic LP Idyllwild, and has had four albums up for AIR Awards with The Moment earning her a nomination for ‘Song Of The Year’ at the 2013 APRA Awards. Mia Dyson’s extensive career has seen her support the likes of Stevie Nicks, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt and Joe Cocker, and most recently touring extensively with her band Dyson Stringer Cloher. Now, the seasoned Australian artist is thrilled to announce a run of National live dates in 2021 taking to Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne, regional Victoria, Brisbane and Byron Bay for Bluesfest in her first live shows in 12 months.
