Spring is here! Come join us for what’s going to be a delightful Father’s Day with this lovely man…
This Sunday 3rd Sept. 11am-3pm, there will be live music with local legend Trev Dwyer, Indian Hot food will be available for lunch and a large array of stalls for your shopping pleasure!
Trev Dwyer is a folk singer & songwriter from the Yarra Valley, Vic.
As the dobro/banjo player in the Vic folk group ‘The Humbuckin’ Pickups’ he is a regular at folk festivals along the east coast of Australia including Yackandandah Folk Festival, Maldon Folk Festival, Sydney Folk Festival, Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival, Fleurieu Folk Festival, etc
His songs tell stories about small town romances, day dreamers and growing up in regional Australia. Keeping to the folk tradition of simple accompaniment and poignant content Trev’s songs balance the line between humour and heartache.
After years accompanying various songwriters he has finally stepped from the side of the stage to the centre and is currently acclimatising to his new position.
He’s a daydreamer, a songwriter and a folk singer…but more than anything…he’s our lovely local, Trev Dwyer.
Come and join us for a lovely day out by the Birrarung (Yarra) river in beautiful Warburton.
The wattle and daffodils are in bloom and the birds are nesting…

Afro Moses Bio:
Afro Moses, also known as Moses O’Jah, is a multi-talented Ghanaian-Australian singer/songwriter who is widely acknowledged as one of Ghana’s most internationally renowned artists. Because of his enthusiastic and somewhat quirky performances, he is frequently referred to as the African James Brown.
He grew up in the Ghanaian hamlet of Ateiku, where he began gathering local youngsters at an early age to teach them how to make their own instruments and perform.
He holds high regard for African culture, which is shown in all of his songs and performances. Afro Moses is a natural-born entertainer and speaker with a magnetic presence that draws crowds in the thousands to his concerts, where he has shared the stage with great names such as Ziggy Marley, Angelique Kidjo, Salif Keita, Michael Franti, Xavier Rudd, and Richard Tognetti.
His solo performances are instructive, incorporating 14 traditional African instruments that not only inspire and soothe the mind, body, and soul but also make you want to dance! His use of classic instruments combined with modern methods astounds his audience, particularly the young.
He also performed and composed music for the short film Inja, which received an Academy Award or Oscar nomination in 2003. He is a member of the Moses Ojah Band, which he leads.
Debi, No Victims, Do Me Wrong, Mama Africa, Ka ne Wu, Home Sweet Home, Judas, African Market Makola, Yele yele, Dabi Nsroma, Nsama, Nice Girl, and Highlife Carnival are just a few of his songs.
Warburton Valley Market will be back in Warburton next month on Sunday 4th June 11am-3pm!
There will be lots of stalls with Art, craft, plants, local produce, food with Indian hot food and more…
Performing we are lucky to have StephenMcCulloch returning bringing his beautiful songs and voice!
Stephen McCulloch is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Melbourne, Australia. His music draws on folk, country, rock and pop sounds, with intricate acoustic guitar work and a voice that ranges from gentle and tender to soaring and powerful.
His songs explore the joy and pain of being human with an honesty that is immediate, engaging, and often uplifting.
Stephen’s performances on Channel 9’s The Voice in 2015 helped propel his debut album ‘Good Things Take Time ‘ to number 15 on the Australian iTunes Singer/songwriter charts. Stephen has also performed at major Australian music festivals including Woodford, The National and Maldon Folk festivals.
His early exposure to music came through his father’s country record collection, with Charlie Pride, Neil Young, Slim Dusty and Merle Haggard all featuring frequently in the family home in Gippsland, rural Victoria. At age 15 he picked up the guitar and harmonica which both still feature in his music today.
“A rich smooth voice, with an edge that makes you want to hear more!” Nick Seymour (Crowded House)
“Stephen McCulloch- What a beautiful voice!” Delta Goodrem (Singer/songwriter/actress)
” The variation and accompaniment was perfect and always left you curious how the next song would run and where it would take you ” Andrew Clermont (Golden Guitar winner, Musician and Producer)

The Valley Market ECOSS-
It all started with farm gate sales at Silvertine farm ECOSS to replace The Warburton Summer Produce Market back in March 2020 just as the Pandemic hit Australia. The Market has now grown to become a vibrant market and a saviour for many to purchase fresh local produce throughout Covid at Yarra Valley ECOSS. As a result we have made the decision to re-brand the market to become The Valley Market and run the market all year round at ECOSS and in addition The Warburton Valley Market runs once a month on the weekend and run all year round!
