Two young performers – one a rising star on the Australian Blues scene and the other a promising singer/songwriter with a voice to sooth the most savage beast.

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:

Alister Turrill Music:
“Alister is a songwriter of the highest order and a sign that the future of Australian blues is in good hands.” – Lloyd Spiegel Music, Premier Endorsee Cole Clark Guitars.
Alister Turrill’s playing style blends a true form of blues with complex song writing seldom seen in someone so young.
Following his award winning 2013 debut album ‘Reverence & Reverence’, and 2015 single release ‘Road To The Grave’ comes the brand new EP ‘A Toast To Better Times’.
A stripped-back modern folk/country blues record where the quality of his songwriting is bared for all.
Honest, Flawed, Gravel-Throated Folkin’ Blues awaits.

Sherri Parry:
At just 20, Sherri Parry has already made a name for herself as one of the most exciting singer songwriters in the Victorian folk scene. Sherri began her career at the age of 12, playing open mics and small gigs in central Victoria. She soon began to gain recognition for her talent, winning awards for both her songwriting and performance skills. It was around this time Sherri’s music caught the attention of accomplished singer songwriters such as Grim Fawkner and Tom Lee Richards, who have since acted as mentors to her.
Sherri Parry’s music showcases both composition skills and world views well beyond her time, and her live performances are nothing but a testament to that. Delivering intimate, ethereal performances that never fail to leave audiences spellbound.
Parry debuted her highly anticipated first EP, ‘EQUAL’ in October 16, sharing six songs exploring people, life and relationships. EQUAL is now available to purchase at
