CONCERN for the plight of the region’s precious native wildlife has motivated some of the Mid North Coast’s most loved singer/songwriters to join forces and donate their time and talent to present an evening of incredible music and song for a great cause.

The event is called Wildlife Harmony and artists Georgia Cortes Rayner, Julie Kovendy, Deebee Bishop, Snez and Stewart Peters will be performing their original music at the Alofa Sands Surf Club Cafe, Nambucca Heads on 17 February, with proceeds going to WIRES Mid North Coast to assist them to continue caring for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.

“We all see the effect that urbanisation, domestic animals and habitat loss has on our precious wildlife on a regular basis and wanted to do something about it,” Scotts Head-based singer/songwriter Georgia Cortes Rayner told News Of The Area.

“The other artists were on board immediately and we are all giving our music and time in the hope that we can raise awareness and funds to assist the WIRES Mid North Coast volunteers who work so hard for our wildlife.”

The artists will be taking a break from their current musical projects and touring schedule to deliver this once-only event where the audience will be treated to beautiful original acoustic music.

Snez has been touring extensively with her latest album ‘Fisher and the Sea’ and is now back in the studio with Stewart Peters of Soundshed Music working on her new album.

Georgia Cortes Rayner has been busy writing songs for her second album and has been playing plenty of gigs around the Mid North Coast and North Coast.

Deebee Bishop has been back in the studio ahead of the March release of his new album ‘Dog Eared and Torn’ that will be followed by a tour of small halls from the Nambucca Valley to Melbourne and Tasmania.

Julie Kovendy has been directing her focus on original material and performing solo, although occasionally teaming up with Deebee Bishop for some great gigs and recording sessions.

The night will also feature some wildlife stories, amazing raffles and lucky door prizes with great prizes donated by generous local businesses.

At the event beverages and delicious food can be purchased from the Alofa Sands Surf Club Cafe bar and kitchen.
Wildlife Harmony is on 17 February 2024 beginning at 5:30pm at the Alofa Sands Surf Club Cafe, 2 Headland Drive, Nambucca Heads.

Tickets are just $15 and can be purchased at Trybooking.

Georgia Cortes Rayner concluded, “Please don’t miss out on this event where each performance will be delivered in the spirit of giving back to the natural wonders that surround us.”
