There is no better way to spend an evening than to listen to local musicians play while enjoying a fine meal and having a drink. Small pubs and venues across regional Victoria regularly provide musician’s with the opportunities to perform in their hometowns and to new audiences. The Golden Vine Hotel, situated in King Street Bendigo holds regular performances that feature a wide range of artists.
Sean Orr, an acoustic artist originally from Echuca enlightened the Bendigo audiences at the Golden Vine Hotel with a mixture of his own original creations and cover songs from the likes of ‘The Boss’ Bruce Springsteen. It was very refreshing to be able to attend a performance that mainly encompasses newly created songs from Sean’s own collection.
Sean’s onstage presence was full of energy and showed that he genuilnely enjoys and takes pride in his music, always ensuring that he engaged his audience with any details about the backstory of his songs that was needed for listeners to understand the context and full meaning behind the songs.
Although creating your own interpretation of a songs meaning can be beneficial for audience members; the small, detailed descriptions gave listeners the context behind Sean’s creations – which worked very well in this small intimate performance.
