 Friday 1 May 8.00pm|  Kevin Bennett and The Flood with Jess Wishart

Kevin Bennett and The Flood at Trinity Sessions with their Gold Guitar winning album 'Blood Red Ties'.
Kevin Bennett, well-respected indigenous singer/songwriter with Sydney roots band The Flood, has just added a 6th Gold Guitar to his pool room with a win for Best Group at the 2020 CMAA at Tamworth. He is already a 5 time CMAA Gold Guitar winner (with The Flood and Bennett, Bowtell and Urquhart) and Aria Blues and Roots nominee in 2006 (with The Flood for Best Group), writes relevant, contemporary Australian music containing elements of Blues, Rock, Folk and Country - telling stories of where he's from and where he might be going, his past, present and future….he sings his life.
Having served his apprenticeship in rock bands – Moving Pictures, The Honeymoon and Chasin The Train, KB began The Flood as a vehicle for his own songs. Kevin Bennett ploughs the same fields as Don Walker, The Dingoes and Paul Kelly with an ‘Australian-ness’ that flows naturally through the songs.
The Flood has recorded 5 universally acclaimed albums including 'The Ballad Of KB', which was named in Iain Shedden’s Top Twenty Australian Country Albums of all time. The band has performed at the Byron Bay Bluesfest, The Dreaming Festival, Gympie Muster, Narooma Blues Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and are regulars at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Their new work, ‘Blood Red Ties’ is concerned with family, roots, country and all the ties that bind. It speaks to, and is informed by, the Australian landscape and the people of this wide, brown land.
Kevin’s band for this Trinity Sessions concert will have bass player Wayne Kellett and banjo, mando, harmonica player Gary Carruthers and Chris Parkinson (The Yearlings) on guitar.
Rhythms magazine calls The Flood ‘the best Australian roots band since The Dingoes.’

Supporting Kevin is Jess Wishart, with her band, a young Bidjara woman whose songs take elements of country, folk and soul music and weave them into deeply personal tales.

 Sunday 31 May 5.00pm|  Eric Bogle with Michael Waugh

Eric Bogle is back at Trinity Sessions and he has got Michael Waugh to open up the show.
Eric Bogle has written some songs that have pretty much become Australian classics of their particular genre. Probably his best-known song is “The Band Played Waltzing Matilda”, which confirmed its iconic status by appearing as a question in the Australian version of Trivial Pursuit! Some of his other songs, “No Man's Land” (The Green Fields of France) “Leaving Nancy”, “Now I'm Easy” “Shelter” “If Wishes were Fishes” etc. etc. are now beginning to rival “Matilda” in the icon stakes. His songs have been recorded by Joan Baez, Mary Black, Donovan, Slim Dusty, John Williamson, Billy Bragg, The Pogues and The Furies, just to name a few.
He has won quite a few awards along the way including the Order of Australia medal for services to the entertainment industry, and a Peace medal from the U.N. for his efforts, through music, to promote peace and racial harmony.
Michael Waugh’s new album ‘The Weir’ reaches up from the dried, cracked heart of Gippsland’s irrigation reservoir - Lake Glenmaggie - asking what it means to grow up Australian. It is family ‘carguments’ on long holiday drives to see the big things of Australia, mozzie-bitten itches of first summer loves, Meldrum-fuelled familiarity of Aussie rock classics, and the lived-in love of dinner with your partner in front of Neighbours. But it is also about what lies underneath – our underbelly laid bare by the drought; the distances that drive us apart, the economic devastation of rural communities, the death-wish of boys in country towns, the spectres of colonisation, racism and homophobia ‘The Weir’ has received rave reviews and in the words of none other than Eric Bogle -
“The Weir” is a lyrical and musical tour de force. In its unflinching, sometimes heart-wrenching portrayal of life in small town Australia, chronicled here by Michael in all its humour, cruelty, compassion, casual racism, love, loss, grief, and sheer mundanity, these songs have few equals in the current Australian music scene."

140 min (inc interval)

Doors open at 4.30pm (music 5.00pm)

Bar from 4.00pm and at interval.

 Friday 12 June 8.00pm|  The Audreys

Folk rockers, live favourites and multiple ARIA award winners, The Audreys have graced almost every major festival in Australia and played more gigs than they can count. They’ve rocked festivals and clubs in Europe and North America, sold songs to films and tv shows far and wide, written music for live theatre, won awards, hit the charts, gone gold and pawned their very hearts for rock and roll.

Launching in 2006 with Triple J faves “You and Steve McQueen”, “Oh Honey’ and “Banjo & Violin” from their debut album, The Audreys now have five albums worth of songs to choose from and just as many hilarious anecdotes. Predominantly playing as a duo these days, Taasha Coates & Tristan Goodall have a chemistry like no other, and every show will bring you from laughter to tears and all the way back again.

It's nearly 2 years since The Audreys last played at Trinity Sessions; and 15 years since they first played with us. It will be so good to have them back again where they played some of their early Adelaide gigs.

130 min (inc interval)

Doors open at 7.30pm (music 8.00pm)

Bar from 7.00pm and at interval.

Tickets $35/$30
