Valley Market Warburton

Sunday 5th May 2024

The fabulous Mandy Connell will be returning to the Warburton Valley Market on Sunday 5th May.

You can catch her between 1&3pm!

Connell’s openness is what stands out from any performance. A forceful singer, and a competent guitar player in multiple tunings, Connell’s personality stands out and has done so in her session work, her interview series An Otherwise Quiet Room, collaborations, and of course songwriting and her captivating solo shows.

Connell is part country and part folk. Trills and affectations straight from Celtic tradition cut through songs as fresh and original as if they were written in your back yard. The Melbourne native now lives in central Victoria, with her handmade Jack Spira guitars, McDonald Mandolin and a garden. Connell’s voice, fingerstyle guitar technique, her deep folk background and her experience in the festival scene are all notable, but ultimately there’s a power in every performance which stands apart from her skills. It is Connell’s presence and ability to share which has earned her the respect of David Francey, Eric Bogle and Judy Small. A musician’s musician and a real treat to see, Connell is well worth venturing out of the house to see.
