Valley Market Warburton

Sunday 3rd March 2024

We are gearing up to our next Warburton Valley Market on Sunday 3rd March, 11am-3pm and would like to welcome Leigh Sloggett to the market stage!

Leigh Sloggett March 2024

Leigh Sloggett’s earthy songwriting and commanding style extends into Blues, Folk and Country music and is delivered with evocative timbres and a soulful touch on searing roots guitar. The musicality of Chris Riseley on double bass and Matt Crump on drums add an extra dimension of depth and vitality creating a distinctive musical experience.

In October 2022 Leigh released his fourth album titled ‘Wait for the Change’ which went on to reach No.1 on the US based ‘Roots Report Top 50 Australian Album Chart’ and No.10 on the ‘Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Chart’. In the UK it was also ‘Album of the Month’ on West Norfolk Radio’s ‘The Sunday Show’. His 2012 album ‘More Than I Need’ reached No.8 on the ‘Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Chart’. As well as numerous festival appearances, Leigh has toured internationally and has twice been a finalist in the MBAS Blues Challenge – most recently with his trio in 2023. Leigh has been performing consistently over two decades and continues to build his reputation as a unique songwriter and guitarist.

A huge thank you to our sponsors Community Bank Warburton & Yarra Junction (Bendigo Bank) and Yarra Ranges Council, without whom we couldn’t put on such a great market…

Enjoy Indian hot food for lunch with live music on the lawn and a large array of stalls with art, craft, local produce stalls and more… There is something for everyone!

We look forward to seeing you all there!
