What is Samford Live?

Samford Live Inc. is a community based, not for profit association, led by an honorary organising group of local professional musicians and a producer. We produce monthly live music in Samford Village offering quality, diverse music.

Our series features multiple genres including folk, blues, world, roots, indie, popular, jazz and swing. We present professional acts in a social and relaxed convivial setting.

Our Venue

Our monthly series is hosted by Little Tree Bake and Brewhouse, in a beautiful rainforest setting in Main Street Samford. Tasty café dining and quality artisan bakery goods. A seasonal menu features local produce, sustainably sourced and made in-house. A full bar offers curated beverages showcasing the best of Queensland, Australia and beyond.

Please note – Little Tree is a mainly covered, mostly outdoor setting. The stage is in a rainforest setting with some sightline restrictions. Rug up on cool nights!


Come & Play

Musicians, would you like to perform at Samford Live? We book artists who are proficient, entertaining, energetic, and currently active, with a following and audience appeal. We prefer acts to have some original material and like to feature local and emerging musicians. Artists are paid a fee.
