2020 Concerts 

 Sunday 19 January 5.00pm|  Tété with Louise Blackwell and the French Set

French pop folk superstar Tété is returning to Australia for the first time in 7 years to celebrate the release of his seventh, and latest album ‘Fauthentique’.
Be it fake news, conspiracy theories or lies from public figures, the news keeps reminding us that these distortions of reality are now part of our daily life.

 Tété's new album comes as a reverse question to this unforeseen present: "How can one be sure about one's perception?"

Hence the “Fauthentique” concept, the expression being French for "falsely authentic". The recording comes across as a sort of melodic make-believe odyssey, built upon organic programming. Falsely naive. Falsely acoustic. Fauthentique.

Tété released his first album in 2001 and by the arrival of his third album in 2006, he had achieved huge success in France was seen touring Japan, UK, the US, Canada and Australia. 
Tété's never stopped since then – touring and songwriting for himself and others or hosting TV shows such as “Tété ou Dédé” with André Manoukian -  which took the duet throughout the world to interview musicians on behalf of French national TV – or acting in film and TV roles.

 Tété is very excited to be returning to Australia to share these 12 new songs from “Fauthentique”, along with classic tunes from across his career.

 And the press said….

 "If you like pop sensibilities with lyrical depth, Tété should definitely be on your radar." Soultrain

 "Tété ought to be crowned France’s folk king." Paste Magazine

 "Both anthemic and melodic….whether you understand the lyrics or not." Music Express Canada

To warm us up for Tété we have Louise Blackwell  with her all-star Adelaide band The French Set featuring Mark Ferguson on piano, Julian Ferraretto on violin, John Aué on bass and Josh Baldwin on drums who will take the audience into the world of the ‘chanson française’ with beautiful arrangements of songs written or sung by a variety of French artists.

 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.

 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.”
