Ayleen O’Hanlon, Rich Davies and The Low Road

Hailing from small-town New South Wales, Ayleen O’Hanlon is a dyed-in-the-wool folksinger and banjoist, with a commanding voice, poetic turn-of-phrase and a skilled picker to boot. O’Hanlon is a seasoned performer whose knack for honest storytelling combined with an unmatched stage presence make her live show a rare thing to behold. Her songwriting evokes widescreen imagery, and when brought to life with with her four-piece folk band, the results are visceral, fierce and tender.

Support will be from Melbourne songwriter, Rich Davies & The Low Road.

The Little Stevies, The Midwayers – Dinner and Show

Sisters Sibylla & Beth of The Little Stevies have an uncanny knack of captivating an audience by being delightfully and unapologetically themselves. There’s something alluring in the authenticity of their often hilarious story telling of everyday life, and touring adventures, which they’re only too willing to share. With a deep, full & warmly polished sound, sweet layered harmonies & irresistible melodies, the sisters’ songs tend to leave a lasting impression. 

Support is by the Midwayers led by Peninsula-based Brendon Mellere. This is a ‘Dinner and Show’. Ticket price includes two courses prepared by the fabulous team at Whispering Vines, Trofeo Estate.
