FINALLY, after two cancellations due to, ahem, unforeseen circumstances, Winter Sounds is set to nourish the souls of music lovers of the shire and beyond.
Winter Sounds takes place at various venues from Friday, July 15 to Sunday, July 17 with the event a weekend of intimate performances taking place across Daylesford and the surrounding areas.
The all-new winter music event takes over some of the region’s heritage venues with shows featuring C.W. Stoneking, Emma Donovan & The Putbacks, Cash Savage & The Last Drinks, Blake Scott, Freya Josephine Hollick and The Luke Sinclair Set.


Produced by the team behind the Riverboats Music Festival in Echuca, Winter Sounds kicks off on Friday with soul band Emma Donovan & The Putbacks and support from Fenn Wilson at the Daylesford Uniting Church.
Festival director David Frazer says that each of the five performance spaces – a charming mix of old churches and Gold Rush-era halls – will offer audiences a chance to be transported to a different time and place for a set of intimate and extraordinary musical experiences.
“Visiting Daylesford during winter is one of the great Australian pilgrimages, and it really is the best time of the year to enjoy this magical part of regional Victoria.
“Winter Sounds will bring some of Australia’s best-loved performers to Daylesford and surrounding hills while drawing attention to some of the region’s most beautiful and sometimes forgotten heritage buildings. With this unique combination of talent and atmosphere, we’re hoping to deliver a really special set of experiences for our audiences.”
On Saturday, rockers Cash Savage & The Last Drinks will play a matinee performance at the 100-year-old Bullarto Village Hall with support from The Peep Tempel’s Blake Scott while Saturday evening will see bluesman C.W. Stoneking take to the Daylesford Town Hall stage supported by Harmony Byrne.
On Sunday, Melbourne alt-country band with ex-Raised By Eagles frontman in The Luke Sinclair Set will perform at the Glenlyon Town Hall with Freya Josephine Hollick. The series will culminate with an afternoon performance by high energy seven-piece soul-jazz ensemble Jazz Party at The Palais-Hepburn.
Winter Sounds – a welcome addition to the music calendar.
