In recent years he has performed at some of the country’s best-loved festivals, including Moomba, Woodford, St Kilda Fest and Blue Mountains Music Festival and also taken the plunge into the Canadian festival circuit.
Joining Benny and his band on the night will be Grim Fawkner. is an itinerant minstrel, whose acoustic works range from upbeat folk/country, to soulful balladry, with elements of blues, pop & indie thrown in.
