Ringer Reef Win­ery to host award win­ning mu­si­cians

Alpine Observer - - What's On -

RINGER Reef Win­ery is host­ing its pop­u­lar ‘Pic­nic in the Vines’ this sum­mer with a num­ber of award win­ning mu­si­cians locked in to per­form at the free events.

Jeff Ty­nan (Jan­uary 12, 2 – 5pm), Kelly Men­hen­nett (Jan­uary 19, 2 – 5pm) and Parkville (Fe­bru­ary 23, 2 – 5pm) will all take cen­tre stage through­out the month.

Jeff Ty­nan is a Mel­bourne in­de­pen­dent singer-song­writer and mul­ti­in­stru­men­tal­ist. His self-pro­duced de­but EP ‘Re­volv­ing’ blends deep earthy roots with mod­ern in­die-folk/ rock and fea­tures raw sounds of wood and strings. In­cluded in the tal­ented mu­si­cian’s per­for­mances are six and 12 string acous­tic and elec­tric gui­tars, man­dolin, banjo, har­mon­ica and tim­ber stomp-boxes.

Fresh from her per­for­mance at WOMADe­laide, Kelly Men­hen­nett, is a na­tional award win­ning artist. Most re­cently she was the re­cip­i­ent of the in­au­gu­ral “Ryan Free­man Live Mu­sic Award” at the 2015 SA Mu­sic awards, she also won the ARBA best roots al­bum for 2014/15 with her lat­est re­lease, Small Dreams.

Parkville are a chart-top­ping acous­tic folk-pop act from Vic­to­ria’s Dan­de­nong Ranges, known for their rich three-part vo­cal har­mony and smooth blend of vi­o­lin, pi­ano and acous­tic gui­tar.

The group orig­i­nally made a name for them­selves on the Mel­bourne busk­ing scene with their as­ton­ish­ing mash-ups of clas­sic tunes.

SYN Ra­dio pro­ducer and Beat Mag­a­zine Re­viewer Paul Wax­man said the hon­esty in the band’s song­writ­ing was clear from a sin­gle lis­ten.

“They are al­ways great at pro­duc­ing heart­felt, acous­tic jour­neys,” he added.

THE Myrtleford and Dis­trict Uni­ver­sity of the Third Age (U3A) has re­ceived a $10,000 grant to doc­u­ment the Ital­ian mi­gra­tion to Myrtleford.

The fund­ing is part of the Cul­tur­ally and Lin­guis­ti­cally Di­verse (CALD) Se­niors Grant Pro­gram.

All knowl­edge­able and in­ter­ested peo­ple are in­vited to at­tend an in­tro­duc­tory meet­ing at the Myrtleford Savoy Club to­mor­row Jan­uary 10 from 7.30pm.

Guests will learn how the project will tran­spire and will be able to ask ques­tions and share their parts of the story.

The project is ex­pected to be com­pleted by Novem­ber 2019.

Nino Mau­tone will con­duct the meet­ing and both Ital­ian and English will be spo­ken.

U3A Sec­re­tary, Jan Mock, said a book or book­let will be cre­ated as part of the ini­tia­tive.

“The meet­ing will be ask­ing peo­ple who em­i­grated to Myrtleford from Italy to vol­un­teer to tell the story ei­ther in Ital­ian or English, this will be­come part of the per­ma­nent record of this mi­gra­tion story,” she ex­plained.

“Vol­un­teers from the U3A will in­ter­view pos­si­ble par­tic­i­pants and record their story, edited sto­ries will be given back to each par­tic­i­pant for ap­proval and pho­tos will also be re­quested where pos­si­ble.

“Myrtleford is a unique town in that many Ital­ians came to work in the area and stayed.”
