Award-winning musicians the Davidson Brothers will take over a Murtoa stage at the weekend, signalling the return of live music in the town.
Multi-instrumentalists Hamish and Lachlan Davidson will front crowds at Murtoa Mechanics Hall on Saturday night from 7.30pm.
Hall secretary and concert organiser Andrew Clark said the brothers and their band, who perform a blend of bluegrass and country, were sure to provide a great night of entertainment.
“They’ve played Tamworth and Port Fairy and are always crowd-pleasers. Like everyone else they’re glad to be breaking out of lockdown and getting back to live shows,” he said.

“This concert is in keeping with the committee’s goal of presenting a program of entertainment over the year.”
Mr Clark said like most musicians, the brothers were looking forward to returning to the stage after a long break from performing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We had to postpone this band last year, but how good that they’re back?” he said. “And how good is it to see live music back across the whole area? Plenty of artists have done it tough through the lost year of lockdown, and we want local audiences across the Wimmera to come back and support them and local venues.”
The concert will be a seated event and people can bring their own refreshments.
“More good news – the town’s new food van, La Cocina Familia, will be there on site to provide exotic and familiar takeaway.”
Mr Clark asked concertgoers to book online via trybooking.com/BPDHS. Tickets cost $35. He said people would need to bring a face mask to comply with COVID-19 restrictions.
People can call Mr Clark on 0459 649 144 for more information.
