2020 Concerts 

 Sunday 9 February 5.00pm|  Amistat with Frank Loves Joan

Following a recent two month Europe and UK tour with Australian band "Sons of the East", playing 49 shows in 15 countries, Amistat have just released their latest EP - “ Love & Light “ which will see them return to Australia start of 2020 for a two month run of headline shows and festivals.

Twin brothers Josef and Jan Prasil were born in Germany and raised in Italy. With parents originating from Czech Republic and Australia, they eventually moved to Australia in 2012 to further their music career. Having recently relocated to Europe, the twins are returning to their ‘second’ home for a run of shows.

Finding themselves in the soundscape of a modern Simon and Garfunkel with influences from the likes of Ben Howard, Kings of Convenience and Kodaline, Amistat are definitely best enjoyed live. A safe place to be, to feel, to heal and to inspire.

Amistat will be hitting the road again in January to celebrate the release of their latest EP “ Love & Light “ with headline performances all over the country along with performances at the renowned Port Fairy Folk Festival, where they won the Maton Emerging Artist of the Year Award back in 2018.

Catch them for the first time at Trinity Sessions; the perfect venue for their music.

Special guests is Frank Loves Joan - The wandering little mind tendrils of singer/songwriter, Amelie Bottrill. Fragile and honest with dreamy overtones, the music is alive with the splendour and agony of all that gives a little insignificant life its meaning. Combining piano, guitar, violin and vocals, it resembles Lisa Hannigan/Regina Spektor/ Emiliana Torrini.

Doors open at 4.30pm (music 5.00pm)

 Friday 20 March 8.00pm|  Marie Wilson

Marie Wilson looks set for a big return to her beloved Adelaide live music scene and her first performance at Trinity Sessions. Her passion for live music has never wavered and her live show will absolutely blow you away.
The combination of a great attitude and undeniable talent helped launch Marie Wilson’s first single ‘Next Time’ to great success. ‘Next Time’ was one of Australia’s most played songs on Australian radio back in 1998, blitzing the Top 40 charts. It earned Marie two ARIA nominations (Best Australia Debut Talent and Best New Artist) and the accolade of being chosen as Best New Australian Artist on commercial radio at the 1998 Radio Industry Awards.
Marie has written with Bryan Adams, Mark Hudson (Aerosmith), fellow Australian Beccy Cole and has had one of her songs recorded by Leann Rimes and has released 5 albums (Real Life - 1998, Studio Sessions – 2001, Heartbreak – 2005, Live in Melbourne – 2012 & Extraordinary - 2014) over her 25 year career.
With all of her albums being produced by recently her deceased producer Joe Hardy (ZZ Top, Tom Cochrane, Steve Earle), the gutsy singer songwriter is now starting to explore her own producing and recording skills.
What she is now experiencing is a creative renewal, and is now writing and recording new material. Her fans will be glad that her songs still have the authenticity and powerful rawness of her earlier work, but the songs now reflect the new dimension of experience she gained during her creative intermission.
“Looking back, my early songs had an innocence, or a naivety, about them, and this certainly reflects where I was in my life at the time. And during the time I wasn’t writing, I realise now that I was gaining life experience, learning lessons I probably never would have known had I not had that break. I think this life experience adds more depth and dimension to my songs.”

 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, 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."
