Winter Warmer concert in Malmsbury

Lucy Wise and Valley Road are joining together for a special ‘Winter Warmer’ show at Malmsbury.

Singer-songwriter Lucy Wise and folk duo Valley Road are joining together next month for a special ‘Winter Warmer’ show at the Malmsbury Town Hall.

The local musicians will be sharing their different yet complementary styles of folk music, along with some delicious warming treats.

Effortlessly blending acoustic, traditional folk, roots and pop sounds, Lucy Wise is an award-winning singer-songwriter with a voice that pulls hearts out from the shadows.

After winning Best Folk Work at the 2023 Music Victoria Awards, Lucy has been touring her new EP, Yearning. She masterfully articulates the things not often said aloud, her melodies dancing to her intricate guitar work.

Brimming with heart, Lucy is a captivating performer.

First and foremost, Valley Road love to sing together. They use their voices to draw out the emotion in a song, in a way that goes straight to the heart.

Longtime friends Bec and Marty have spent years sharing music around the kitchen table at Marty’s sheep farm.

Their love of folk in all its forms is reflected in their thoughtful songwriting, sparkling guitar lines and easeful vocal harmonies.

Their songs are rich in imagery, containing echoes of the dry bush and rolling basalt hills of central Victoria.

The duo released their debut self-titled album in 2023, after they won a Troubadour Foundation Award that enabled them to record with producer Rod McCormack. Their album has received widespread national airplay as well as achieving Feature Album of the Week on ABC Country.

Lucy will be performing in duo mode with saxophonist Flora Carbo. There will be new songs from both acts, some fiddle from Lucy, spine-tingling harmonies and heartwarming stories sprinkled throughout.

The concert will be held at 7pm on Saturday July 13. Tickets are $25 waged / $20 unwaged + $5 for supper. Tickets are on sale now at:
