The New Graces

Gig + Book now

Melanie Horsnell, Kate Burke, and Robyn Martin - all seasoned identities in the Australian music scene - have teamed up as The New Graces. Songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, they deliver exquisite three-part harmonies, with a little desert heat-haze that could only be Australian. Between them, they weave tales of farmers, hippies, mothers, lovers, the ordinary and the mysterious. CWA HALL, Byng Street Orange (in Robinson Park) on Sunday 27 June 2021 2pm - 4pm. Doors open at 1pm - Refreshments available at the venue. Tickets at www.jamorange.com.au/shop or Landers Music.
