Eclectic Sounds presents Deborah Conway & Willy Zygier

Eclectic Sounds is bringing Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier to the Southern Highlands for their rescheduled show 'Songs From The Book Of Life' in February 2022. There's not much you can say about the creative output of Deborah Conway and her partner Willy Zygier that hasn’t already been said. J-Wire reported that “Conway and Zygier seem to have enveloped an intimate, down-home, folk-blues sound that’s deeply relatable. The songs tend to wrap around you, like a favourite throw, or big, old jumper does, as you curl-up on the couch with your favourite melancholic thoughts.” Join them at the Bowral Bowling Club on Wednesday, 23rd of February. Tickets can be purchased via the link below.
