Musicians head to Degilbo for Small Halls tour

ACOUSTIC guitarists, singers and songwriters Katie and Adam Richmond will open Saturday night's Festival of Small Halls at Degilbo Hall.

The husband and wife duo from Degilbo have been playing and performing together for 17 years. Their shared passion for music results in a uniquely stripped back acoustic sound paired with strong vocals, performed for small, intimate live audiences.

The event starts at 4pm with a variety of market stalls, as well as a songwriting workshop with one of the night's special guests, Australian musician Liz Stringer.

The free entertainment for children also starts at 4pm, with a jumping castle and obstacle course. Biggenden Apex Club will operate the bar while the Biggenden and District Kindergarten and Daycare will have stuffed potatoes on the menu.

This is a family-friendly event and it is free for children under 15 years.

Tickets are $25 for adults and include supper prepared by the kindy committee.

Doors open at 6.30pm for the main event, featuring US musician Vance Gilbert along with Liz Stringer.

Gilbert has released 12 albums since bursting on to the New York singer-songwriter scene in the 1990s.

His work is an ongoing commitment to traditional folk storytelling, yet remains true to his jazz roots.

Liz Stringer is a respected songwriter and performer from Melbourne.

Tickets can be purchased online or at NBRC offices.
