Orchard Festival, Penrith


It was hard to resist booking a singer who included songs about planting an orchard and making quince jam in her repertoire for our Full Bloom Festival – a celebration of orchards in the springtime. We weren’t disappointed. Talis’ music blended so perfectly with the orchard setting and the mood of our festival. The reaction from our visitors as they walked in to the orchard was surprise and delight – and lots of questions! The combination of a beautiful sound and such thoughtful lyrics was spot on for us… hope to work with you again soon.
