Based in the Blue Mountains on the Western edge of Sydney, Music Hunter breaks new ground. We know that musicians aren’t just providers and gigs aren’t products. Music Hunter is a human and respectful approach to showcasing live music.
In 2010 Meg Benson went to a Skorba gig that started her thinking. Brilliant transcultural musicians, Andy Busutill, John Robinson, Llew Kiek, Bertie McMahon and Paul Jarman, played to a very small crowd in a venue with much more capacity. How do musos make a quid like this? How can making music be sustainable for them when there’s such a small audience? All around Meg, brilliant musicians were struggling to find engaged audiences. And on the flipside, adventurous listeners and people seeking connection couldn’t figure out where to access quality music that didn’t fit in the regular charts, or venues that had that sought-after ambience.
The challenge Meg took on was to gather together a community that gets why music matters. To start helping to book the right gig in the right location. And to promote the idea that it’s good for our mental health. That music is something that nurtures connection and community. That it’s good for the soul.
