A night of intimate stories through song is on offer at Crossley Hall this Saturday 17 August as two singer-songwriters take to the stage.
Bec Willis and Matt Ward are joining forces for the show playing 'ridiculously honest' songs of home and heartache.
"Crossley will be the third show in the tour so we should be into the swing of it," Willis said.
"I saw Matt play in Tamworth last year and he had a really good alt-country sound which I really liked so thought we would be a good team.
"Matt will play his set first, then I will play and we will do some songs together. It will be a really good show."
Willis, who has played in country legend Beccy Cole's band for four years, described the Crossley Hall as a great venue for an all-ages show.
"It's a really nice listening room with a great community feel," she said.
"Country and folk artists are looking for original, unique venues to play.
"I'm not sure if I am really country, I tried to disown my country roots for a while
"But country is a great way to tell stories through music, and I am a sucker for a good melody."
People are encouraged to bring nibbles and snacks to enjoy during the show, but some food will be available on the night.
Originally from Kingston in South Australia, Willis said she has a over 50 cousins living close to Crossley and is expecting a good crowd of relatives to turn up for the show.
"All the kids were born in Warrnambool so we would always travel there to see the family," Willis said.
"I always feel like Warrnambool is home, there are generations of ancestors there.
"I literally get goosebumps every time I go back."
Tickets will be available at the door, or via Trybooking. Doors open at 6.30pm, with music to start at 7.30pm.
