Two of Australia's most beloved performers, Debra Byrne and Vika Bull, are coming to town next weekend to perform their tribute to Carole King's album Tapestry.

Held at the Swan Hill Town Hall on Sunday, February 26, the concert is an authentic re-imagining of one of the biggest selling and most revered albums in the pop music canon.

Speaking to The Guardian, Debra Byrne said she had always been a fan of Carole King.

"I have loved her since I was 13 years old so this concert was a no-brainer. I just jumped in," Byrne said.

"I have also always wanted to work with Vika (Bull) and thought this would be a great thing to do together.

"We've known each other for a while and she is such a professional. Working with her is just great; I love it."

During the Tapestry concert, the duo will perform a diverse number of Carole King ballads. 

King's Grammy winning album Tapestry featured some of her biggest hits like I Feel the Earth Move, You've Got a Friend and (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman but Byrne said she didn't have a particular favourite song to perform.

"They are all beautiful," she said.

Byrne said there was something special about performing outside metropolitan centres. 

"I love touring regional areas. They always have the best theatres and audiences," she said.

"It's always nice to get out there and I have actually been on holidays in Swan Hill quite a few times."
