The townships of Tallarook and Seymour are set to rock as live music returns for flood-affected communities across regional Victoria this spring.

Through Music Victoria’s Live Music for Flood Recovery program, supported by the State Government’s Creative Victoria, small towns in regional and rural Victoria will host 30 live music events for communities to revive and gather after 12 months of clean-up and rebuilding since floods affected the regions.

Tallarook and Seymour venues are set to host a series of concerts, along with others in Shepparton, Strathfieldsaye and Euroa among a wide range of events planned for other regional communities.

Music Victoria chief executive Simone Schinkel said being able to gather and enjoy live entertainment was important for recovering communities.

“We’re so excited to see an incredible array of community led events taking place all over the state,” she said.

“These events will provide a place for people to gather, reconnect and enjoy live music, which is such an important part of the recovery process for these communities.”

Seymour’s Blue Tongue Berries, at 445 Northwood Road, will host three events across July, August and September for a series of ‘Short Straw’ performances.

The July 30 event will feature Australian Sudanese artist Ajak Kwai, while the Matt Joe Gow Trio will perform on August 27 and Australian folk storyteller John Flanagan will take to the stage on September 28.
