Singer-songwriters, guitarists, storytellers and laid back mates, Benny Walker and Tom Richardson are teaming up for an intimate co-headline tour. Join them for a night of songs, stories and the kind of banter that only two close friends could throw back and forth at each other.
A Yorta Yorta man from Echuca, Benny Walker is the real deal and a star in the making. His killer voice and epic tales are mixed with a deep groove and passion for the land. Recent offerings SAVE and Oh No You Don't shot to No. 1 on the AMRAP charts; the latter earning him four NIMA 2016 nominations and the award for "Best Aboriginal Talent" at The Age Music Victoria Awards.
His latest songs produced by Jan Skubiszewski mix Blues and Roots with a contemporary guitar driven soul vibe. Benny Walker has performed alongside some of Australia's finest, including Archie Roach, Alex Lloyd, Blue King Brown and Tim Rogers.
"What is more inspiring than the beauty of adventure and connection?! Music has been the vehicle that has allowed me to continually experience both of these things."
Tom Richardson is your newest oldest friend! With an infectious and genuine demeanour, Tom's song writing, story telling and intricate guitar playing are a delicate balance of grace, truth and passion. Appreciating the freedom of exploration and the privilege of forging relationships with listeners and cultures around the world, Tom has performed in 15 different countries across the globe, reflected in his musical arrangements that may be best categorised into experiences and emotions than genre. Renowned as a "maestro" for his "clever skills" (The AU Review) on the loop pedal, Tom is seen dancing over his pedals, creating sound scapes of four part vocal harmonies, multiple guitar sections and complicated percussion grooves, all live on stage.
Delicious home style cooked dinners and desserts are available for purchase. The Rhythm Hut is fully licensed with assorted beers, wines and ciders, including locally made Six String Brewing Company and Murray's Craft Brewing Co beers. Under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
