Keepers
at Home
Curated by Georgia Mooney

A message from our music coordinator, Georgia Mooney

Welcome to the music line up for the Finders Keepers at Home weekend. It’s been my pleasure to bring live music to Finders Keepers for a number of years; it adds something really special to the market experience.

For Finders Keepers at Home, I want to bring great Australian music right into your home! On Friday night, we collaborated to present our very first Live Stream Concert featuring an amazing line-up of songwriters performing from their living rooms, especially for the Finders Keepers community.

After a day perusing the wonderful wares of our stall holders, I highly recommend pouring yourself a drink, kicking back and tuning in to the show! See the poster for times, and hop from one Instagram page to the next to watch each artist perform. It’s nothing short of a magical, musical treasure map!

There’s also a curated playlist of artists who’ve graced the Finders Keepers stages over the last few years. This will be up and running for you to enjoy all weekend!

Like Finders Keepers, the music industry has also been hit hard by COVID-19 and the subsequent restrictions on gatherings. If you can support the Australian music industry, I encourage you to donate to Support Act – Australia’s only charity delivering crisis relief services to artists, crew and music workers in need. I also encourage you to follow the links below to stream and buy merch from these incredible musicians.

Many thanks and enjoy the show!
