Ringer Reef Winery is very excited to be having their great friend and talented musician Kelly Menhennett coming to perform at Ringer Reef Winery. Join for an afternoon of wine, music, stories, laughter and friends on January 19.

Fresh from her performance at WOMADelaide, Kelly is a national award winning singer songwriter of the soul/roots/alt-country variety, a captivating live performer and a voice once compared to a cross between Erma Franklin and Etta James.

Kelly Menhennett, daughter to a third generation grape growing father and cabaret singing mother, was born and bred amongst vineyards in the South Australian countryside. After years working as a red winemaker, the healthy dose of largely soul, country and rock and roll music that infused her blood as a child eventually led her to the stage. Her first performance was humble, in the dining room of a local country pub, calling out meal orders in between songs. But as soon as she unleashed her unique, gritty voice to the unassuming patrons, they were hooked and there was no turning back.
