Willunga Show Hall Main Rd Willunga SA
Dear friends and music lovers,
We at Stone Pony are so glad to be back in the saddle and organising shows where we can meet together with you again and hear wonderful music in Willunga’s old show hall! Thank you for staying the distance with us through the long COVID-19 induced break and bearing with us while we get our shows happening again. We hope you enjoyed our first show of the year with The Cherry Pickers and Steve Lennox & The Keepers, we had a ball and it was just so heart warming to see so many familiar faces and share such a rich musical experience together.
You may have noticed a few changes and hopefully they will enable us to continue to bring you music in a sustainable way. We will have less shows, and slightly decreased audience capacity, but we will still be looking to offer some of the best local and interstate artists currently making and touring their music. We will be running shows in February, April, May, September, October, November and December — with a mini festival for our September show! In October we plan to join with the Fleurieu Folk Festival for a Friday night Stone Pony that showcases artists selected by the festival. And our special post Christmas December show will be going ahead with bells on! Stone Pony cheese platters are still available to order through the ticketing site and we have the best local beer and wine on offer as usual at the Pony bar, with our brand new plastic mascot to greet you. Now for the music — you may be wondering what’s coming soon?
We are so excited to bring you the 2020 winners of the Victoria Music Awards for Best Country Album — Tracy McNeil & The Goodlife on April 10th! Read the low down below..
Don’t forget to book your tickets and we will see you there!

Tracy McNeil & The Goodlife
Tracy McNeil & The Goodlife are back on the road with a rescheduled Australian tour to launch their ARIA nominated new album, ‘You Be The Lightning’.
Combining McNeil’s Canadian roots with a shimmering indie Americana sound, the powerhouse outfit received critical praise around the country following their new release through Cooking Vinyl Australia — home to such luminary songwriters as Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin and John Prine.
With high radio rotation for singles ‘Catch You’ and ‘Not Like A Brother’, ‘You Be The Lightning’ was made Feature Album on Double J, PBS FM and 2SER and was followed by a coveted ARIA nomination for ‘Best Blues and Roots Album’. Capping off the run of accolades, they won ‘Best Country Album’ at the Music Victoria Awards and received a longlist nomination for the prestigious Australian Music Prize.
In an unforgiving year, ‘You Be The Lightning’ shone brightly, and the band can’t wait to finish what they started.
“It would be naïve of me to say that Tracy McNeil sounds like someone else because the truth is she’s a f*ucking force for nature, unique, a powerhouse, a slayer, a genius, a musician of the highest degree.”
— Nkechi Anele, Triple J
“So many of these songs sound familiar, steeped in a sound that references Fleetwood Mac, Gram Parsons and that point on the highway where country meets soul.”
— ★★★★ Chris Familton, The Music
