Kankawa Nagarra + Flooded Palace

March 9 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Family friendly and free to attend, pack your picnic blanket and tune into the rhythms of summer.

Melville Summer Music returns, pack your picnic and get down to your local park for sun-drenched evenings with world class musical performances that surprise, captivate and enchant.

We have something special for you in March as we welcome Kankawa Nagarra (Olive Knight), a Walmatjarri Elder, international blues and gospel singer-songwriter, teacher and mentor and human rights advocate to the stage. With an incredible story to tell, Kankawa is a joy to watch.  

Joining Kankawa is Flooded Palace, the seldom-seen kid of much-lauded and awarded multi-instrumentalist Todd Pickett, who’s played over the past 15 years with such luminaries as The Kill Devil Hills, Abbe May, Kim Salmon, The Southern River Band, and Don Walker from Cold Chisel. His star-studded backing band are from equal prestige.
