Missy Higgins leads green concert
Australian singer-songwriter Missy Higgins will be headlining a special concert at Broome Convention Centre in the name of environmental conservation.
Local conservation group Environs Kimberley is hosting a fundraising concert with the hope of continuing its efforts of protecting the Kimberley environment, as it has done for more than 20 years.
Higgins has been a strong supporter of Environs Kimberley and is excited to be part of the Concert for the Kimberley.
“The Kimberley holds a special place in my heart, so I’m always happy to help Environs Kimberley out to help protect it,” she said.
“I want my kids and grandkids to experience the same wonder and magic of this country as I have.”
Environs Kimberley director Martin Pritchard said the Concert for the Kimberley was about celebrating the region and making sure it was looked after for future generations.
“We’re lucky to be living in one of the world’s most intact regions but we’re facing many threats like fracking, land clearing, feral animals and invasive weeds,” he said.
“To have support from internationally acclaimed musicians like Missy Higgins and such a group of local legends is a huge boost to our work protecting the Kimberley.”
Along with Higgins, the Concert for the Kimberley will feature the Nomadics, The Mexicans, Wil Thomas, Tanya Ransom and Charlie Mgee, from Formidable Vegetable Sound System.
