INDIGENOUS singer-songwriter Kutcha Edwards is as acclaimed for his storytelling as he is for his music.
This was in evidence at Brophy in Warrnambool on Sunday and Windamara Aboriginal Co-op at Heywood on Monday.
Edwards was a special guest in the region as part of the Songlines tour, which saw him perform with his band, Skin Choir and DJ Philly, as well as telling some tales.
Brophy community development worker Lyn Eales said Sunday’s performance was an uplifting one for the 80 people who were there.
“Kutcha was his incredibly amusing self, telling fantastic yarns and having a good laugh,” Ms Eales said.
“It was a joyous celebration of community and culture.”
Skin Choir not only performed a diverse range of songs with beautiful harmonies, but also provided a local connection, with of their members hailing from Gunditjmara country.
Ms Eales said they were invited back after giving a fantastic performance during NAIDOC week in Warrnambool earlier this year.
Songlines is an organisation that promotes and supports indigenous performers.
