Portland Memorial Hall will be transformed into a portal blending present and past through this live multimedia event.

Van Diemen’s Fiddles are three of lutruwita/ Tasmania’s finest musicians – Julia Fredersdorff, Emily Sheppard and Rachel Meyers. They will make music inspired by dances, stories, people and the land, alongside electronics and visuals from Mac40Media’s Caleb Miller. This world premiere has been curated in response to the communities of St Helens and its surrounds.

When you attend the concert, you will unlock an exclusive audio walk created by the musicians. This geolocated walk will guide you along the Georges Bay foreshore with a soundtrack inspired by the region, including stories of the area shared by locals.

Before recorded music, fiddlers were the most portable of musicians, and the keeper of the tunes. Van Diemen’s Fiddles explore nostalgic folk tunes from all around the world, including original arrangements of works from the manuscript of Scottish fiddler Alexander Laing, who exported some of the first fiddle music to Tasmania. The walls of the Ross Town Hall will reverberate with nostalgic folk tunes from around the world.
