Enjoy the sights of Bendigo’s architecturally stunning CBD from on board the sensationally restored vintage Class tram #610, while being serenaded by two great acts.
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).
Rambling man, Grim Fawkner, is no stranger to stages and streets across the globe and at home. The epitome of the itinerant musician, he draws together tales and musings from his travels and is as likely to deliver them in soft ballad form as he is face-meltingly intricate and upbeat roots/country/blues. Nods to his skills as a songwriter and a performer include being voted “Melbourne’s Best Busker” by The Herald Sun and popular vote, an endorsement by Cole Clark guitars, a Byron Bay Bluesfest performance, opening slots for Marcus King Band, The Waifs & The Badloves, a national tour support for Kasey Chambers Campfire Tour and opening for “Once” the musical with his own numbers.
