Ballara Art & Lifestyle Retreat presents Ballara Sounds, a seasonal series of contemporary live music evenings which commenced in 2019.
The idea is to take the live music experience back to its truest form - intimate, personal, connected, communal - featuring world-class artists and songwriters who both seek out and benefit from this type of environment. An equal footing and nourishing relationship between artist, venue and audience.
Strictly limited to a 50-person capacity per show, the back porch of Ballara is transformed into a cosy, relaxed, candlelit ‘listening room’ (we respectfully ask the audience to refrain from talking during the performance, although socialising before, during intermission and after the show is strongly encouraged!) conducive to the baring of souls and the sharing of stories... and secrets.
We have some some special events planned for 2021 and beyond after the devastation and then subsequent resurrection of COVID restrictions in 2020. To stay informed on the Ballara Sounds schedule, sign up to our mailing list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
