Roll out a picnic blanket on the banks of the Nerang River for a truly unique concert series that uses the Gold Coast’s natural beauty as its stage.

“The sorceress of percussion”, Claire Edwardes OAM, performs from a barge on her giant marimba, mellow vibraphone and drums—taking you on a musical journey through wireless headphones. Serenading you into the sunset, Claire’s program takes its inspiration from the natural world around us with musical reflections on the nature of water, ancient fertility rites and falling embers inspired by the east coast’s most recent bushfire season. This award-winning musician crafts melodic beats that truly move you.

“Claire Edwardes is a phenomenal musician, and any performance she gives will be stamped with consummate skill and her exhilaration for music showcasing percussion.” — The Canberra Times

Claire Edwardes
