About this event

This annual event is on again in the magical Rennie Gallery Autumnal Gardens. Come and meet the artists and preview their fabulous sculptures with the opportunity to purchase. You’re invited to enjoy delightful finger foods, Little River Wines and Bonfire Station Beers while listening to the fabulous music of Soloman and Lacey, all inclusive in the ticket price of $25pp plus small booking fee.

It promises to be a fun night and a great way to begin the Easter festivities.

 

We’re excited to announce that The Stetson Family will be playing live on both days.  Here’s a little from their website: “’They blend like one of the legendary bluegrass or country families…their best material yet.’  Rick Moore, American Songwriter, Los Angeles.

The Stetson Family walk the line between alt-country and bluegrass with their free-wheeling, spirited songs, awash with soaring harmonies. Described in American Songwriter Magazine as “champions of fresh bluegrass but with a bedraggled soul of rock and roots,” the band takes their audience on a journey down life’s crooked highway.

With their last album ‘True North’ further establishing the band internationally, breaking out of Australia onto US Roots/Americana charts, the band garnered stellar reviews in the UK, Italy Czechoslovakia, Uruguay and everywhere in between. Nominated for Best Duo/Group at the Victorian and National Country Music Awards in 2016, they have appeared at numerous festivals around the country including Out On the Weekend (VIC), National Folk Festival (ACT), Cygnet Folk Festival (TAS), Nannup (WA), Bangalow BBQ & Bluegrass (NSW), Gympie Muster (QLD) and received an invitation to perform in the USA at the International Bluegrass Music Association conference in Nashville, Tennessee.

They are regulars on the Melbourne music scene, the national festival circuit and everything in between, and their festival harmony workshops are inspiring and often culminate with participants joining them onstage.”

“Acquiring their performances at Little River Wines, Taggerty for our upcoming Open Wine Weekend we feel is a real coup” say Phil and Christine Challen. Adding further: “We’re also thrilled that Grant Street Grocers will be creating sensational flavours for our pop-up food services. Combine this with a line-up of Murrindindi’s historic cars, a dedicated exhibition and sales space for works by renowned artist, Marian Rennie as well as quality local craft and artisan displays, we’ve all the ingredients for an enthralling gala event.”

Little River Wines will be open from 11am on both days. Plenty of seating available or bring a rug. Strictly no BYO food or drinks or dogs, please.
