We’re hosting two of the classiest acts you’re likely to hear anywhere on our May 2017 Tram, a soulful powerhouse from Queensland in Hailey Calvert (w/Jason Cameron) and a bluesy folky singer/songwriter from all over, transplanted to a very thankful Central Victoria – Luke Watt;
Enjoy the sights of Bendigo’s architecturally stunning CBD from on board the sensationally restored vintage W Class tram, while being serenaded by two amazing acts:
Owning a bluesy, rich voice and fluid guitar style has earned Brisbane’s Hailey Calvert many fans as well as turning her into a festival favourite. Two EP’s, one album and countless charismatic live shows into her career, Hailey is an unforgettable performer showing no signs of slowing down.
Described by ABC National as “raw and mercurial, the real deal,” and by Lloyd Spiegel as “one of my favourite artists” folk/blues guitarist and songwriter Luke Watt has recently release his third album “Wild Graces”.
Despite the experiences of touring throughout Europe and the U.S, Luke’s new record is inspired by tales based much closer to home, picking and sliding his way through stories of failed gold diggers, small town murder and cranky old men!
