THERE’S a big weekend of live music coming up at the Archies Creek Hall, beginning on Friday night, May 28 with the remarkable Kutcha Edwards performing songs from his soon to be released album ‘Circling Time’. Doors Open @ 8pm, showtime @ 8.30pm.
Kutcha is a songman, not simply a songwriter.
He draws on a profound sense of all those who have gone before him on this land, along with his own life experiences so this show will no doubt be something very special.
