Handpicked – Fire Songs

Thu 10 August at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Heating up the Orange Winter Fire Festival and getting your blood pumping is one of the regions hottest bands serving up a selection of fiery songs from a wide range of artists including Bruce Springsteen, Adele, Billy Joel, Jimmy Hendrix, Alicia Keys, James Taylor, Garth Brooks and many more!

The Handpicked House Band features Orange’s most prominent rock musicians Kyle Manning, Luke Ferguson, Dave Egan and Travis New. These boys are a show all on their own, so lovers of live music can expect a roof-raising night of tunes, great food and singing along with everyone in the Canobolas Hall.

Set amongst cherry orchards on the foothills of Mount Canobolas, enjoy delicious woodfired pizzas with beverages from See Saw Wines and Gordon Hills Estate beside the roaring fire in one of the region’s beautifully restored small halls that has been transformed into a vibrant music venue for the Handpicked events. Stay warm with our house brewed mulled wine and cap off your evening with dessert and coffee.
