Fine tuned for music festival
by Stephanie Gropler
Pflaum Terrace will be transformed into a
bustling music venue again this year, with
artists from across the nation performing at
next month's Laneway Live Festival.
The event attracted over 500 people last year
and is promised to be "bigger and better" with this
year's proceeds to be donated to the Loxton Hospital
Loxton Hotel bar manager and event co-ordinator
Jarrod Loxton said there would be "something for
everyone" at this year's event.
"We will try and step it up from last year and we
really want to see locals support it because obviously
it is for a good cause as well," he said.
"There will be familiar faces from last year, but then
a few different ones as well."
Headline acts will include Tom Richardson, Sweet
Anarchy and James Abberley, along with local artists
Kelly Menhennett and Alyssa Spilsbury.
Acoustic, blues and roots, indie, rock and reggae
can be heard throughout the event and is family
friendly throughout the day.
Mr Loxton said the event was affordable, with tick-
ets $5 for adults and a gold coin donation for thosed
aged under 15.
"It is a good opportunity for people to come to see
quality musicians in a regional area for that price," he
said. "It will be a similar set up to last year, so there
will be two stages of non-stop music."
Mr Loxton said the festival helped established good
connections with locals organisations and businesses.
"This year there will be a wine bar with Growers
Gate wines featured," he said. "A wine bar, a beer bar
and cider bar."
Headline act Tom Richardson is headlining at
the Follow the Sun festival in Glenelg, alongside
Something for Kate's Paul Dempsey.
Other headline acts include Ciariam Granger, The
Villenettes and Rat Ta'Mango, while an after party is
set to take place in the main bar.
Hotel manager Karen Kilsby said Loxton Hospital
Complex staff would be lending a helping hand
throughout the day.
The event is fully catered and will kick off at noon
on Saturday, October 11, with tickets available at the
Hit duo set for Loxton stage
World class beat boxer Tom
Thum will be performing in Loxton
in coming weeks, as a lead-up
event to Laneway Live.
Tom Thum will perform alongside Jamie
MacDowell on Wednesday, October 1, at
the Loxton Hotel.
Loxton Hotel manager Karen Kilsby saw
Tom Thum and Jamie MacDowell perform
live when they featured at the Adelaide
Fringe Festival earlier this year and said
she "could not wait" for him to perform in
"The Riverland is extremely fortunate
to have the opportunity to experience
the exceptional talents of these two
performers," she said.
"Their performance will entertain all
Tom Thum became a household name
after his performance at TedxSyndey
2013, with the footage become the most
watched TED YouTube clip of all time, with
over 8 million views.
Meanwhile, Jamie MacDowell blends
bass lines with jazz chords which, when
combined with his long-term hip-hop
sensibilities, creates a unheard before
approach to pop, rhythm and word.
In addition to the evening performance,
the duo will conduct a free one-off school
holiday workshop for 5 to 15 year old
students the same afternoon at 4pm.
Ms Kilsby said while the school holiday
workshop is free, seating is limited and
people are urged to register for the event.
Tickets for the Tom Thum and Jamie
MacDowell are $20 for adults and $15 for
students, with doors opening at 7pm.
To celebrate Loxton Primary
School's centenary year, people
are asked to submit their 'family
favourites' for a commemorative
Around 100 recipes "celebrating 100
years of family traditions" will be fea-
tured in the book.
Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden
Specialist Sheridan Heinze urged cur-
rent and past students, and the wider
community to contribute.
"We release a cookbook every year at
around term three/four, so we thought
this year it would be a nice touch to
coincide it with our October centenary
celebrations," she said.
"With the history focus we have had
as a school for the 100-year milestone
in 2014, we thought it could be an
opportunity for students and people to
look at their own family history and
think about what foods they have eaten
as a family over the years.
"We'd love to see a mix of modern
and traditional recipes from as many
cultures and backgrounds as we can."
In addition to the recipe ingredi-
ents and cooking method, people are
encouraged to send in photographs of
the "finished product" and family mem-
bers enjoying the meal.
Sweet and savoury meals, baked
goods and beverage ideas will all be
considered for inclusion.
Anyone interested in submitting a
recipe can contact Loxton Primary
School by calling 8584 7408 between
9am and 3pm. The cookbook will be
launched at the school's centenary cel-
ebrations weekend next month.
