“I’ve Been Everywhere” a FREE concert for aged care residents, friends, families and carers at The Melba Spiegeltent - Leaps and Bounds Festival

Yarra City Council is excited to announce the free live music concert, I’ve Been Everywhere, a unique event crafted especially for people living in residential aged care, their friends, family members, carers and agency staff. Hosted at The Melba Spiegeltent, on Friday 21 July as part of 2017 Leaps and Bounds Music Festival.
Leaps and Bounds Music Festival goes out of the way to ensure everyone gets the chance to enjoy the best of Australian grown music in mainstream settings. People living in nursing homes are no exception!
The Band Who Knew Too Much is no morning melodies. Bringing accordions and washboards, singing anthems, this is a concert for the seniors of our community who know so much. The concert will follow on from last year’s highly successful format of great music with an open mic session in a warm festive Gypsy Carnivale atmosphere in the magical Melba Spiegeltent.
The Melba Spiegeltent is known for its magical interior, and also features a large accessible carpark.
"I’ve Been Everywhere" is part of a whole package of events specially designed to connect with people who love music. There’s a big focus on young people, and this year Yarra City Council is working with venues to ensure those with accessibility issues are welcomed and able to enjoy the great music on offer.
