Enjoy the sights of Bendigo’s architecturally stunning CBD from on board the sensationally restored vintage W Class tram, while being serenaded by two great acts:
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.
Jo Jo Smith:
Jo Jo is an inspirational performer generous of heart soul and musicality. Coming from a roots base of Soul Blues Funk and Jazz steeped in groove and sprinkled with good humour Jo Jo’s material ruminates on love life and all things real. No one leaves a Jo Jo Performance untouched by her vocal ability and magnetic stage presence.
In 2017 Jo Jo celebrated 50 Years of working in the music industry by doing a cracker 50 Gig tour of Australia organised and arranged by her dear friend and colleague / poet / singer /guitarist Lucie Thorne.
Festivals Jo Jo has played of late include The Mullumbimby Music Festival, Port fairy Folk Festival, Bellow Winter Fest, Bendigo Blues n Roots, Eltham Jazz Festival, Whare Flat Folk Festival, Newstead Folk Festival.
