Carla Lippis with Max Savage 

Carla Lippis writes and sings music as pure as an unadorned lightbulb in a pitch-dark room. And Max Savage is back with the False Idols to sing blues ballads and shout and stomp like it's going out of style 

Two local musicians at the top of their game, Carla Lippis and Max Savage, return to the stage after eight years, hundreds of flying hours and half a lifetime of late-night revelry, broken hearts and rusted strings. Carla and max will be playing with their full bands - cool!!

Masterful, elegant and effortlessly cool, Carla Lippis returns to the city of churches with a disarming mix of intricate melancholy and undulating feurkraft. A long-standing fixture of London’s Cabaret scene with stints playing spaghetti western soundtracks in Tuscany and late nights at the Cafe De Paris, Carla Lippis is, without a doubt, one of the most important voices to emerge from South Australia in the past two decades.

Max Savage is one of South Australia's most dynamic, energetic and cutting edge live performers. Mercurial and dark; often poignant and occasionally funny, his music draws influences from blues, country and the great American songbook to tell stories of heartache, redemption and loneliness.

Eric Bogle with The Fiddle Chicks

We are excited to have Eric Bogle to play at Trinity Sessions with support from the fabulous Fiddle Chicks 

There’s not much good about COVID, but one good thing for us is that it means that Eric is available to play at Trinity Sessions; as opposed to his planned tour of New Zealand, shows in Victoria and some holidaying in Europe. Maybe not so good for Eric. Eric Bogle has written some songs that have pretty much become Australian classics of their particular genre and he is still penning some cracking songs, reflecting on life, politics and culture in Australia and the world. 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.

After fifteen years of performing, The Fiddle Chicks are still going strong. Emma Luker (Eric Bogle band) and Dee Trewartha (The Cow Patsys) use only their fiddles, bass fiddle, stomp-boxes and vocals to create a unique musical experience for audiences throughout Australia. From their traditional and classical fiddle backgrounds they have developed their own distinctive minimalist style. Their original songs and tunes will take an audience from the fiddle’s melancholy to its energetic and highly infectious sounds!

Zkye Original with Tara Coates and Sub Rosa

This special show will see Zkye and Tara Coates performing with their own crack bands consisting of some of Adelaide’s finest musicians, showcasing their original music, with a few covers thrown in.

One of the most popular blues singers in South Australia Zkye studied music throughout her schooling and went on to study jazz voice at a university level. 

Her first album "Beyond the Pane" garnered a devoted following of fans eager to see where Zkye's talent would lead.

​Her second album "In This Case" was a natural evolution of Zkye's distinct style; the album was her first to be predominantly recorded in Nashville, TN, and established Zkye as a fixture in the American music scene, and an emerging force to be reckoned with.

​Her follow-up album, "Just the Way It Goes", was recorded in the US with some of Nashville's finest writers, studio musicians and engineers and ventured in to the roots of the music that has inspired her whole life.

This concert will feature Zkye Original comprising band members Zkye, Damien Steele-Scott, James Muller and Brad Polain.

​In November 2017 Zkye had the great pleasure of opening for Stevie Nicks at Botanic Park with fantastic reviews and an awesome crowd response, it has definitely been a highlight so far.

Zkye Blue released their debut album "Live at Mixmasters Vol. 1" back in 2015 and it received rave reviews and subsequently took out album of the year at the ARBA awards.
 “Live at Mixmasters Vol. 2" was released in September 2019 after and eager awaiting period from their many fans.


Tara Coates (nee Carragher) has grabbed her electric guitar, trading her folk roots for indie rock with new band, Tara Coates and Sub Rosa. Writing new songs and forming a band (Richard Coates, Emma Luker, Sam Cagney, Mark Seddon, Gilly Atkinson) after the birth of her first child in 2019, Tara acknowledges:

"Having a baby made me see my life in this whole new, incredibly joyful way. So, when I came back to music after that, I just wanted to get out in front of my band, lay into an electric guitar, sing my face off and have some fun with it. New mums need an outlet to let off some steam, those babies are really hard work! My outlet just happens to be my Gibson guitar.”

Tara has supported Mia Dyson, Shane Nicholson and Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus).

Her 2016 release, ‘Wicked World’ earned her a nomination for ‘Best Female’ in the South Australian Music Awards." With her band Sub Rosa has stepped things up a notch and has released new music over the past six months, much to the delight of her South Australian fans.
