Recording for UMM: Rebel Elders kicked off in August, with Jake, Steph, Tab and Kate hitting Redwood Studio first up.  We've been working with the amazing Rose Turtle Ertler, local Elders and young musicians for a few months now, writing songs inspired by local Elders and some of their own favourite music.  This is Part #2 of the Ballarat Rebel Elders project - after the huge success of the 2014 experience, Youth Services incorporated a second phase into the UMM: Unique Message Makers project.

Wednesday 2nd September UMM: Rebel Elders participants took to the stage at Live on Lydiard to showcase their original works, inspired by songs and stories of local elders.

With a CD due to be released early October we're having a hoot creating unique messages through music and song.  We'll be looking for new team members to join us in making shorts films for each track in coming months also.
