The music market even got approval from Archie Roach AM, who said, “It’s a great concept to have a music market that supports everyone involved in music. I’m so proud that Emma Donovan and Paul Kelly perform Ruby Hunter’s song, Down City Streets as part of the opening. Emma’s performance of Ruby’s songs has always been truly amazing and the fact that Paul sings it with Emma recognizes his role as producer of my debut album Charcoal Lane where Ruby’s song was one of the tracks.
