The Heart of St Kilda Concert is the annual fund raiser for the Sacred Heart Mission. Its the fourth year I have been photographing this concert by artists who donate their time for a great cause. The Mission looks after the disadvantaged in the Community, with free meals, shelter and support. Over 120,000 meals were served in the last year.
The Artists who participated this year were:
Dan Sultan, Kitty Flannagan, The Chantoozies, Rob Snarski, Steph Tisdell, Rebecca Barnard and Bily with Choir, Joe Camilleri, Carl Barron, Kiki Courtidis, Rhonda Burchmore, Pierce Brothers and the Teskey Brothers. Brian Nankervis (Radio and TV personality) was the Emcee, and as is well known, does a marvellous job of it.
Backing Band – Meltdown
The nights event wound up with John Houghton, the lone Piper, playing ‘Amazing Grace’ from the Royal Balcony.
It was a fun and laughter filled evening, great music, great comedy, participation by the Patrons in a Q&A session and many winners in the raffle announced by the Mission’s CEO, Cathy Humphries.
So, if you missed it, there’s always next year.
Few pics from the event. In no particular order.
