Orange, known as Australia’s Colour City is just a few hours drive from Sydney and within easy reach of the Blue Mountains. When you visit the Orange Region you will discover a welcoming city, rich in history with a flourishing cultural scene. Take a walk around the historic town centre, the wide streets and stunning architecture – particularly impressive examples of the Victorian, Edwardian and Federation periods. The surrounding hillsides produce some of the best fruit, wine and food in Australia. Taste the best of the season at a farm gate or cellar door. Enjoy a locally flavoured menu at a café or restaurant. Orange emerged as the number one place to live in a recent national survey of regional cities. Great health and education services, excellent shopping and marvellous community facilities helped us top the list. And the scenery is breathtaking across all four seasons.
Show features VISHTEN (Canada) and THE LITTLE STEVIES (Australia) with local support act SMITH & JONES (visit website)

SMITH AND JONES BIO:
Smith & Jones are a duo hailing from Bathurst and Tamworth respectively. Made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist, harmonica player and vocalist Sophie Jones, they met at a much loved record store in 2013 where they bonded over a love of classic country and blues, and spent far too much of their hard-earned money. During this time they established The CanBeltos Choir, a Bathurst and Orange based community choir, which saw them nominated for Young Australian’s of the Year for 2015. Part classic country ballads, part sweet jazz standards, and often with a tongue firmly planted in their cheek, their beauty is in their harmonic simplicity and lyrical power.
