Hugh McDonald is one of Australia’s most enduring and successful musicians. He is a singer and virtuoso multi-instrumentalist who toured the world as a member of Redgum – one of Australia‚Äôs most significant bands.


Hugh records local and international artists at his studio in Melbourne and takes his songwriting expertise into schools for primary students of all ages. New skills are introduced to form positive creative expression for the emotional benefit of those that actively partake.
