Headland Writers Festival is proud to present these two outstanding artists together in concert for the first time, for one night only at the historic Tathra Hall. “I’ve been a fan of Kevin’s work for over twenty years” says Cullen, “so when I learned that he was also a fan of mine, I figured we just HAD to make some music together, and I’m delighted that we’ll get to do that in front of a music-loving Bega Valley audience. I can’t wait.”
