About the artists…

Kerryn Fields: 
Fuelled by humility, integrity and a raw clarity of vision, Kerryn Fields paints enduring musical portraits that detail the colour and feeling of everything that makes us human.
Drawing comparisons with the likes of timeless creators, Cat Stevens, Townes Van Zandt, Joan Baez, Neil Young, and more, Fields’ trademark warmth of character – evident in both life and music – fuels a creative offering that’s equal parts captivating, refined and heartrendingly insightful.
Newstead Live Music Festival’s Troubadour Artist of the Year (2019), winner of the MLT Songwriting Award (NZ Country Music Awards 2019) and New Zealand’s Best New Broadcaster (at age 19), Kerryn Fields has released a range of celebrated records including debut LP, Rascal (2015) and award-winning, critically acclaimed single, Mamma (2019).

Archer: 
Archer has been everywhere and played everywhere. From the gutter outside your house to the world famous Montreal Jazz festival. From your grandmother’s nursing home to your daughter’s kindergarten. He starts somewhere in the 1920s and ends up singing to a robot dog in a lagoon on Mars. He is known variously as: The Claypan Crooner, Australia’s Woodie Guthrie and the one and only singin’ talkin’ leakin’ slowboat to China. Archer’s music is described as Swagman Crooner Bush Blues.

Hannah Acfield:
Melbourne’s Hannah Acfield is an exceptional vocalist and songwriter. Described as ‚Äúa luscious blend of Aretha Franklin and Joni Mitchell‚Äù, Acfield‚Äôs vocally powerful and melodically rich songwriting combines the storytelling of folk music and the emotive expression of gospel/soul.
“The best voice I’ve heard in a long time” – Venetta Fields

About the venue: 
The Old Church on the Hill is located on the corner of Harkness and Russell Streets, Quarry Hill, Bendigo.
The Singer/Songwriter Showcase events, staged at the Old Church by the Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival crew on a semi-regular basis, are an opportunity to enjoy a House Concert vibe in a public venue. The door charge is kept as low as possible to ensure accessibility to all. Under 12s free and, although drinks are available for sale, the focus is on THE MUSIC. If your conversation is more important to you than other people’s enjoyment of the artists’ performance, please take it outside. (Thanks.)
Proceeds from drink sales go to supporting the Old Church crew and their many worthy initiatives.
We look forward to your company for an intimate concert experience like you’ve likely never experienced before.

Doors open 6:30pm for a 7pm start. Tickets via Humanitix.
