RUSSELL Crowe has spent the week penning songs and laying down music with some of the big ensemble of stars, performers and songwriters who last night graced the stage during the Indoor Garden Party show.
Accompanied by his good mate, prominent Canadian singer songwriter Alan Doyle, Russell has spent much of the week at the family's Nana Glen property focusing on an another upcoming music project.
After the four shows at the Jetty Memorial Theatre end on Monday, Russell will shift his attention back to The Water Diviner, his directorial debut.
Speaking about the success and appeal of the Indoor Garden Party, Russell said the nights were about friends who loved performing getting together telling stories and singing songs.
"They are very informal parties and always full of laughs and when you have voices like my friends have ... spine-tingling is the phrase that comes to mind," Russell said.
The shows focus on the songwriting partnership that Russell has developed with Alan Doyle, a famed member of the prominent Canadian folk band Great Big Sea for almost a decade.
The Indoor Garden parties have been a grand success playing in New York where Hugh Jackman, Sting and Ben Affleck have shared the stage.
The give-away of double passes to the Indoor Garden Party, advertised in Wednesday's Advocate, attracted more than 500 entries.
Deahne Rushforth and Shane Kelly were the lucky winners.
Congratulations to both.
