Live favourites and multiple ARIA award winners; The Audreys, have graced almost every major festival in Australia and played more gigs than they can count including in Europe and North America. We are proud to host them here in Hobsons Bay as they return from a long break to celebrate the 11th anniversary of their first album. Benny Walker, a Yorta Yorta man from Echuca, was awarded 2017 Best Aboriginal Talent in The Age MusicVic Awards, and his current EP Undercover debuted at #1 on the iTunes Blues charts. Stunning voice, deep groove and passion for the land Benny is not to be missed. It’s “children’s music for the kids of real music lovers”! Teeny Tiny Stevies had their beginnings as a side project for sisters’ Sibylla and Bethany Stephen’s alt-folk-pop band The Little Stevies. Most definitely, bring the kids, and make a day of it.
