Benji and the Saltwater Sound System
Tilba Valley Winery and Ale House
Saturday, December 4:
Since their recent formation Benji and the Saltwater Sound System have matured quickly after being exposed to audiences at a snowballing number of live shows and high profile festivals slots.

The artists in Benji and the Saltwater Sound System have had the honour of playing at acclaimed festivals including; Woodford, the National Folk Festival, Mitchell Creek Rock N' Blues, the Dreaming Festival, Granite Town, Peak Festival, Palm Creek, Sydney Blues Festival, and Illawarra Folk Festival just to name a few.

It's night, and the walls of Rachel's home creak as they settle into the cover of darkness. Fear has led her to a reclusive life on the land, her only occasional contact with her sister. A hammering on the door. There stands a mother, Hannah, with a sick baby. They are running for their lives from a mysterious death sweeping the Australian countryside. Now Rachel must face her worst fears: should she take up the fight to help these strangers survive in a society she has rejected for so long?
Inga grew up in central west NSW, and has lived in Canberra, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast hinterland. She now lives on the far south coast of NSW. Inga's books include Mr Wigg, Where the Trees Were, Nest, and Understory.
