NORTH East Artisans have re-launched Gallery Gigs at Benalla.
Gallery Gigs attract original musicians to an intimate setting with supporting local artists.
Australian songwriter Paddy McHugh and songstress Claire Anne Taylor, whose latest album was produced by the esteemed Chris Townend (Silverchair, Portishead, Tim Finn, Ngaiire) performed at the launch recently. The duo were supported by Sean Buckley.
Events coordinator Michaela Alexander said Gallery Gigs showed that engaging musical performance was critical.
"The Gallery Gigs provide the kind of stripped back, up close and personal performances that capture the imagination of music lovers of all kinds," she said.
Liv Cartledge and Mandy Connell will perform in the next Gallery Gig on October 5.
