Last week’s cool change came swiftly, catching many of us unprepared.
An upside to the cold snap was that it signalled the start of the Winter Sessions.
Music from all corners could be heard at the Vault in Shepparton at the weekend, with the event offering two nights of eating, drinking, listening and dancing.
The Winter Sessions’ first instalment for the year saw Stranger, The World Collective, Luke & Ellia and Beth Caldow take the stage.
Friday was a chilly night outside; but inside, the sounds and the atmosphere could not have been warmer.
There were electronic beats with live drums, swooning acoustic folk and a party-starting dozen-strong multicultural big band jam.
Some people sat, nibbled and chatted, others could not help but get up and boogie.
The seasonal event series, running for four more weekends, is split into two different nights — Fridays for those up for a party and a chit chat and Saturdays for the music appreciators.
Organiser Jamie Lea proudly announced to the room all of the acts had ties to the Shepparton area, which received a rowdy round of applause.
