Summer of Soul, as we have come to know it, will not be happening in 2018. It is with great pleasure we can now inform you that Lyrebird will be presenting a series of outdoor night events at Mossvale Park this Summer.  Just think of Meeniyan Town Hall shows but in the great outdoors of Mossvale Park. The first gig will be on Saturday 2nd December: The Waifs with special guests.



2017 marks 25 years since West Australian sisters Donna and Vikki Simpson (now Vikki Thorn) joined forces with Josh Cunningham to create one of the country’s best-loved bands: The Waifs! To celebrate and commemorate, the band will be coming to South Gippsland this December.

Since releasing their debut, self-titled album in 1996 The Waifs have established a strong and loyal fan-base worldwide, built on the relentless touring they did in Australia in those formative years, playing in any town that would have them, honing their stagecraft and their songwriting skills along the way. In a catalogue of many great songs, from early favourites such as London Still and Lighthouse to Black Dirt Track and Dark Highway to their 2017 Album, Ironbark, there exists an embarrassment of riches.

The Waifs fans are legendary in the industry for their loyalty and enthusiasm. It feels like we all grew up together.  We are now the band you can bring your parents and your kids to hear!  Your involvement in our career means everything to us. You are the very reason we are still playing music together 25 years on.” Vikki Thorn

Gates will open at 6 pm and the music will kick off at 8pm. A small number of food and wine vendors will be on site but you are more than welcome to BYO food and drink. Make it a family picnic, work break-up or pre-Xmas get together with friends. Bring your own picnic, rug, chair, and smile. You are also encouraged to take your rubbish home with you and recycle. Car parking is available just outside the park, with a small charge and money taken will benefit The Berry’s Creek CFA.
