The Festival’s much loved Yungaburra Sessions are back!
- The first of The Sessions, May 22, features the cream of the local Celtic and Folk music crop with a pub verandah jam session from 3 pm.
- Following this is the evening Session featuring Mission Beach favourites JuJu Moon live in the Yungaburra Pub Ballroom from 7.30 pm.
JuJu Moon is the songwriting, recording and production collaboration between Ian and Karen Stewart. Ian plays guitar and sings lead vocals while Karen joins him with lead vocals and saxophone.
Based at South Mission Beach they are supported in this by a talented, energetic and committed group of musical friends – Franny Francis-Piper on backing vocals, Kent Gibbins on bass a guitar, Ian Preece on drums, Kym Hall on sax and Shabaun Jones on trumpet.
JuJu Moon has been playing festivals in Far North Queensland for years including the Tablelands Folk Festival, Palm Creek Folk Festival, Wallaby Creek, Mission Evolve and Coalescence. They have performed multiple times at original showcase events such as the TFF ‘Jangaburru Sessions’, Resonate in Cairns, The Tanks original music series, and this year the band has also recorded a track as part of a compilation album showcasing Far North Queensland original music bands called Northern Exposure 2021.
The culminating event for the project was performing at the album launch party with fifteen other original live acts at AJ Hacketts Skypark in April. The track ‘Dr Love’ has had air play this year on Cairns 89.1Fm and ABC Far North. For further info check out the JuJu Moon website www.jujumoon.com
