Autumn line-ups


Friday 5 April
Ryan Downey, Hannah Cameron

Red Hill Pavilion

The defining feature of Ryan Downey’s music is his voice; a jaw-dropping amalgamation of Leonard Cohen and a spirited Bill Callahan by way of a mid-century crooner. His 2018 debut album Running is a glorious and perfectly constructed 21st century folk gem, and not a note detracts from Downey’s rich baritone as he sings a song cycle of humour and pathos, self-analysis, sex, love and modern life.

Support by Melbourne singer-songwriter Hannah Cameron.

Food by Nordie. Local wines and beers available.

Tickets available here






Friday 3 May
William Crighton solo and unplugged
w/ Beans on Toast (UK)

Red Hill Pavilion

Three years ago William Crighton played a remarkable, unplugged band show at MOTH and it remains one our most memorable shows.
William has included MOTH on his first solo tour. He says: “This tour I will be on stage solo, telling stories, sharing thoughts and performing songs from both albums as well as airing some new material for the first time. This is my first headline tour performing solo and I’ve been putting a lot of effort into making it a memorable one for you. I’ll be playing some keys and other various stringed things”.
After more than 10 years in the game, English songwriter Beans on Toast has become something of a cult figure. He’s a hippy, a punk, a poet, a drunk, a die-hard romantic and an eternal optimist and performs simple songs that tackle big issues.
Not to be missed!
