Alongside Mammers, the sessions feature sets from acoustic legends, like Lloyd Saunders, Chris Booroff and Mat Stokes to name a few. 

Adding an extra layer of enjoyment to your evening, the Airlie Beach Hotel is also stocked with tantalising Sailor Jerry mixed drinks and pitchers – as well as the must-try Sailor Jerry Apple shots.
