Hallston and Tarwin Lower

Next show in Week 3 we have Hallston, the perfect name for Small Halls! And it seems the crowd lived up to their name…

What a fabulously rowdy bunch. NL all the way over here. Ha. I don’t think anyone on tour sang as loud, clapped as loud and kept us on our toes so much.
Imogen Price. She stole our hearts and did an incredible cover of Joni Mitchell’s ‘A Case of You’. Honestly people, the talent of young artists in these small towns is unreal. Look to rural for the best you got, AU. It’s where it’s at! also, wineries for miles, amazing Shiraz and gorgeous grapes and cheese. What more could we ask for? Well, desserts, peanuts, popcorn and Ferraro Roches obviously. We had it all!
Who made all the hand knit Star Wars characters? So excellent.
See you soon, you beauties!
The Once



Where can I get some of those?! These communities are so friendly and creative, it’s amazing to see. Tarwin Lower backed up Hallston perfectly with another great crowd…

Tarwin Lower,
Pfft. Yer wicked! I don’t know how many times I can say, “you were great” without being disingenuous. But you were. Each town is so fabulously unique. Festival of Small Halls Australia, you have to know by now how fortunate we feel for this opportunity.
What a beautiful place to stroll around. Must have seen 50 Kangaroos again. Love it when they hear you and they stand at attention to check you out. I love that they know they don’t have to run from me. Saw the Arnold Schwarzenegger of kangaroos on this day. Some taller than my 5’5” height and they scare me, to be honest. They could take me out.
Wilson Blackley everyone! Another fab singer/songwriter. He wears a coat of many colours and already has a superb presence and confidence on stage. Let’s see how long it takes him to be famous, shall we?
My favourite cousin/uncle was named Wilson. Has nothing to do with anything. Just thought I’d let ya know.
All the best to ya
The Once 



It’s so hard to pick a favourite town, the tour party is loving everything! So great to hear. Looking forward to hearing about the next two weeks of the tour…
