IT’S simple really.
The Prom Coast and surrounds is recognised globally for its spectacular scenery, natural beauty, abundant wildlife and pristine beaches. These elements and the laidback lifestyle has attracted many “seachangers” to the district and, together with the innovative and diverse community, has developed a reputation for quality local produce as well as creating a healthy and vibrant arts community. The towns of Fish Creek, Foster, Sandy Point, Toora and Welshpool boast many quality cafes and outstanding galleries, proving the reputation is well founded.
There is also a very healthy music community in the district and, for the first time, many of these musicians will be gathered together at the same event to showcase their passion and talent to locals and visitors alike. Most have been performing locally, in the Latrobe Valley, Melbourne and interstate for a number of years and have refined their craft in pubs, clubs, galleries, festivals, parties and just about every other event and venue imaginable. Their music is varied; from folk rock, rhythm and blues, Irish to reggae, rock, country and old time/bluegrass and there is always plenty to appease all tastes.
The Pearl Park Music Festival, to be held on Saturday, January 19, 2019, will be a celebration of community, family and music. Everyone is invited to this free event and enjoy the friendly, picnic atmosphere. The versatility of the musicians will become evident as the day progresses. The goal is to simply enhance the region’s overall reputation
