Trinity Sessions 15th Birthday

Trinity Sessions started in 2002 and this year they are celebrating their 15th birthday! To celebrate they are putting on a couple concerts, one of which i'll be performing at with other bands, Junior, Vincent's Chair and Dr Desoto!

This is going to be a very special evening with plenty of food available during the interval and beautiful Primo Estate wines and boutique beers and cider. 

Tickets are $25/$20 and availble via Dramatix on this link...

JUNIOR have been one of the favourite live bands on the Australian Festival Circuit, appearing at festivals such as The National Folk Festival, Canberra; The Illawarra Folk Festival, NSW; Port Fairy Folk Festival; Fairbridge Festival Western Australia; Wintermoon and Woodford Folk Festival Queensland. Their songwriting captures the Australianness in us all and they will always make you smile.

VINCENT'S CHAIR “Vincent's Chair are the real deal – wonderful musicians playing all-original, beautifully crafted songs” InDaily, Adelaide The songs, by Kathie Renner – who cites Sting, Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon as her influences – have an eclectic sound that crosses all musical boundaries, and articulate enigmatic story-telling with a focus on honest musicianship.

DR DESOTO Fronted by Mikey Green (Ex The Audreys), Dr DeSoto produce edge-of-town acoustic jangles and torchlight songs, alongside punchy roots-pop which evokes the Polaroid days of radio. Stories about the strangeness of suburbia and the flicker of streetlights delivered over infectious rhythms and tremolo guitars.
