Australia Day Weekend ‘Festivus’ Concert At Phillip Island Winery, Sunday January 24 2016 from 5:00pm
Bluegrass/Country wizards, The Davidson Brothers, will join acoustic guitar wizard Ricki Wood, local ‘all-stars’ band, The Small Town Big Band, and local chanteuse Imogen Price at the Phillip Island Winery on Sunday January 24th.
Music will kick off from 5:00pm from the Phillip Island Winery stage.
The Davidson Brothers, led by Yinnar brothers Hamish and Lachlan, are multi-golden guitar winners and known widely around Australia (and in Nashville). They play a sensational high-energy style of country bluegrass swing, and are not to be missed for this ‘once off’ visit to the winery.
Ricki Wood, well known to many on ‘the Island’, is a powerful master of the acoustic guitar and totally extraordinary singer (he lit up the stage at MusicFest 2013). The Small Town Big Band, led by local studio producer Andy Stewart, brings together some of Bass Coast’s best musicians with a superbly arranged and performed set of Neil Young, John Prine, and acoustic classics.
And getting the show underway is young local singer, Imogen Price, fresh from the Cool Summer Festival (Hotham) and who plays and sings with a beautiful maturity and feel.
Cost of admission is $20 per head; bring a rug or chairs. Aside from our platter menu, we’ll be running a barbeque with local meats from Ted’s, and lots of salads and crusty breads.
Bring your family along and “tell them all the ways they have disappointed you over the past year” (quote: Frank Costanzo, Festivus).
