On Song International, Australia’s own MTV-style TV show, is teaming up with local Redcliffe event Picnic Hill to host the stars of their series in an intimate, outdoor concert this Friday, 8 September.

Determined to get back to real artists with real music Ken Kunin and Keith Blair‘s new show On Song International is a performance and documentary platform that features singer-songwriters and original bands of all genres. Leaving behind the karaoke-style singing of popular talent shows, On Song offers real insight into artists and their music.

To celebrate the show’s impending launch, Picnic Hill will showcase local stars from the pilot episodes including indie-pop songstress Pepper Jane, blues-folk movers Fugitive & the Vagabond and musical storyteller Stephen Dorrington.

Run by the team at the Redcliffe Youth Space Centre, Picnic Hill is a concert series from which funds raised (from gold coin entry donations) go towards helping the Centre support young people and their families. Their programs offer non-judgmental, open door support to young people aged 12-25 who may be suffering mental health concerns, domestic violence, homelessness and a range of other issues.

So, if you’d like to see the next wave of Australian MTV-esque musicians before they grace our television screens and support a good cause, then grab some mates and head to Picnic Hill this Friday, 8 September.
