We’re back for the third time at Glenlyon General Store this Friday October 10th. It’s a lovely cafe in Glenlyon, which is one hour from Melbourne and ten minutes from Daylesford. There’s cosy lighting, boutique beers and ciders, carefully selected wines, inventive and hearty food, friendly service and pretty decor. The show is free, and we’re playing 2 sets, 6:30-8:30pm. If you get there before nightfall, you’ll see there’s a tree out the front with a little door in it. You don’t get that everywhere.
This weekend, we continue the Central Victorian leg of our tour, in the pretty locales of Glenlyon and Trentham.
On Friday May 16th, 6:30-8:30pm, we’re performing at The Old Glenlyon General Store, where you’ll find delicious and interesting food and local drinks. Last time we were there, we tasted the lentil salad with heirloom carrots and pomegranite. Pomegranite! You don’t get that everywhere.
On Sunday May 18th, 1-4pm, we’re performing at The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Trentham. It’s a very cosy hotel, built around 1866 but beautifully restored, and there too you’ll find seasonal, local, flavoursome food. You might also like to have a look in the vintage shop next door.
Both gigs are free and only about an hour from Melbourne.
