Big sounds to resonate in small halls

The Festival of Small Halls music tour will hit the stage at the Mil Lel Memorial Hall this weekend for the first time in the event’s 10-year history.

There will be a sausage sizzle from 5.30pm, doors open at 6.30pm, bar open on the night and supper available at interval.

Talented musicians Chris Tamwoy and Mel and Kylie Morrigan will be headlining the festival which will include a performance from local Gabe Strachan.

Gabe is a 13-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who will start off the night’s festivities.

He plays many instruments including the piano, guitar, drums, bass, trombone and harmonica.

He is a regular busker around town and has performed at community events such as the Australia Day Breakfast and Blue Lake Carols.

Chris Tamwoy will then take the stage as an award winning First Nations singer, songwriter and musician with extensive awards including national NAIDOC Youth of the Year.

His guitar-tap style and vibrant personality see him in high demand for gigs across Australia and the USA, and he has played some of Australia’s largest music festivals.

Duo Mal Webb and Kylie Morrigan will finish off the night in style.

Mr Webb has been hailed a vocal adventurer, multi-instrumentalist, and looping beatboxer songwriter.

He sings his thought provoking songs using different vocal techniques, guitar, mbira, slide trumpet, trombone, chromatic harmonica, and a loop recording pedal called Derek.

Mrs Morrigan is a violinist who has played with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Barry White and The Seekers as well as the Orchestra Victoria.

She currently enjoys a range of styles including electro swing, folk and contemporary classical.
