Winter Sounds 2023: Tex Perkins & Matt Walker

From the soaring St Peter’s Church to the grand town halls of Daylesford and Clunes, the villages of Glenlyon and Bullarto and aboard the Spa Country Railway, Winter Sounds is bringing some of Australia’s finest artists to extraordinary spaces across Dja Dja Wurrung country this August

Now Tex’s reuniting with Matt Walker for duo shows. Their powerful live show features songs spanning Tex’s vast catalogue, as well as brand new material they have written together for their Fat Rubber band album.
