Storytellers @ The Station – Valley Road

When: Sunday, 12th May
Time: 2:00pm – 5:00pm
Where: 7/65 Berwick Cranbourne Road, Cranbourne
Cost: $15

Folk duo Valley Road have been quietly captivating new fans over the last year with their heart-rending harmonies and intricate guitar playing, after winning a Troubadour Foundation Award in 2022 to make their debut album with Rod McCormack (released in October 2023).

Valley Road – two friends, Rebecca Jane Howell and Marty Mckenna, have been singing together for over a decade. They weave their experiences into songs of people and place (usually sitting around Marty’s farmhouse kitchen table), bringing an Australian perspective to their diverse folk influences.

This is certain to be a magical performance taking the audience into their rich inner worlds through their contrasting yet perfectly suited voices and delicate guitar playing.
