Returning to the picturesque setting of Sanctuary Lakes, City of Palmerston’s live music event is the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and make the most of the glorious weather. July’s feature artist is NT-based singer/songwriter Kim Koole, who says the atmosphere at the venue is part of what makes it so special.

"Live at the Lake has such a wonderful vibe about it. I love that it's family friendly, it's in a beautiful space, and the crowd actively listens and interacts,” she says.

Koole is joined by guitarist and singer Ambrose Nicholls, the duo combining their rich vocal tones and harmonies for over five years. They bring a wide repertoire of easy listening, fresh country and folk tunes, with a sprinkling of the classics – just the thing for a lazy afternoon by the lake.

With a different local muso on the bill each month, the popular event is a cornerstone of City of Palmerston’s commitment to fostering the community’s thriving creative industry. Koole agrees the opportunity provides performers with a vital platform to engage with audiences.

“Events like these are so important in helping the local community to discover some of the amazing talent Darwin has to offer. As a performer, it allows us to feel involved, and provides us with a wider audience who may not have heard our music before,” she says.

City of Palmerston Mayor Athina Pascoe-Bell says it’s a must-do on the Council’s extensive program of free events.

“If you’re a regular attendee to our events, or yet to experience something like our live music sessions, I encourage you to gather your loved ones, and head along to see the fun happening near you."
