When folk musician Eric Bogle takes to the stage this weekend with the Orange Male Voice Choir, it will be a "completely new adventure".
Mr Bogle, who's been playing music for over 50 years, normally plays with one or two other accompanying musicians on state, but for the first time will play with a choir behind him.
"About a year ago I was approached by a member of the choir to do some songs with them and thought 'no, no, no, no, no' but then thought it was time I got out of my comfort zone," he said.

"I love choirs, who doesn't?"
Mr Bogle plays two shows in Orange, one on Friday night and another on Saturday at the Orange Civic Theatre, and he's said the voice choir will be the "X-Factor" in the performance.
He said audiences will know what to expect from him, and while he's loved doing something different he admitted it had been a challenge.
"I'm used to slowing down and speeding up, not waiting for their cues... they're not used to my musical moods," he said.
"Also listening to them, while we were playing I was thinking 'this sounds quite nice' but I have to play instead of listening."
While Friday night's cabaret performance at Bloomfield Hall featured a light supper and a more relaxed feel, tickets are still on sale for Saturday night's concert at the Orange Civic Theatre.
Tickets are available through Ticketek or the Civic Theatre website.
