Funky world renowned singer-songwriter, Geoffrey Williams is headed to Clunes to perform at this month’s Book Town Festival.

One man, a loop pedal and a whole lot of soul, Williams has won plenty of fans throughout the region which he now calls home.

He is famed for his apparent ability to conjure a beautiful melody and a killer groove out of thin air.

Williams will be performing on Saturday March 23 at the Clunes rotunda from 3.15 to 4pm as part of this year’s Book Town Festival that happens of March 23-24, and will also be performing prior to that together with his daughter Milla Williams, as the Milla Williams Duo.

The duo, that also performs at the rotunda venue from 2.15pm to 3pm on the festival Saturday, features daughter on vocals and father accompanying on acoustic guitar to create plenty of soulful chilled-out vibes.

The performance will be free to catch as this year the festival committee has opted to drop the entry fee, while ticketing still applies to get into featured special guest, panel and writer discussions.

“This year we’ve dropped the entry fee and extended the Booktown footprint so that visitors will be free to roam across the entire township without the hassle of wristbands and fences,” festival chair Kadir Hussein says.

The diverse array of headliner guests appearing as part of this year’s ticketed program of conversational sessions include Helen Garner, Jane Clifton, Wayne Macauley, Jacinta Parsons, Alice Pung and radio favourite Nicole Chvastek.

Another feature this time around is the Saturday evening Tin Shed Show which will feature Sally Ford and the Idiomatics with Helen Garner, Jane Clifton and Wayne Macauley, presenting Underscore, a genre-bending musical and literary salon.

And don’t miss Daylesford artist, Brian Nash, who will join Ian Roberts, Geoff McArthur and Rebecca Russell in the chair to talk about their fictional, visual and historical explorations of the region in Goldfield Stories on Saturday, March 23 from 1.30pm.
