Live favourites and multiple ARIA award winners The Audreys ARE BACK with a brand new lineup and a brand new tour.

Led by sultry songstress Taasha Coates, 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 favourites “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. The Audreys will be back in the studio in spring 2022 ready for a new release in 2023, so be the first to hear some of the new songs - along with all the old favourites of course.

Supporting The Audreys at this special show will be Cal Williams Jr, who first played at Trinity Sessions in 2009. Multi-award winning blues singer/songwriter, Cal Williams Jr, combines the gentle fingerpicking of British folk with the raw intensity of delta slide blues to create a sound that is both intricate and powerful. Blues Blast agazine, USA, said “Cal Williams Jr’s guitar work is impeccable under his gorgeous voice. a marvellous quilt of tones and textures from this masterful player”

Dave Graney and Clare Moore

Dave Graney and Clare Moore launch their new CD "Everything Was Funny" 

However, they choose to play, they bring their story and their songbook which stretches to over 40 albums. Their shows are like few others. During the initial Melbourne pandemic lockdown they started doing online shows every week, sometimes twice a week and revisited songs from all these albums as well as workshopping new material. They kept their performing nerve and playing and writing skills sharp. Then the lockdown eased and they played some shows around Australia. Then the lockdown came back again. Lucky their lockdown nerves held too.

The duo’s latest album is a classic Compact Disc packed with too many songs for vinyl. It’s an album for the freaks called EVERYTHING WAS FUNNY.

They’ll be playing a lot of the new collection – mixed in with old classics from their songbook – along with some choice interpretations of other people’s songs for this album launch.

When people ask you in the future, “what was it like in those years-2020-2022?” You can begin by stroking your chin and saying …”weeelll… everything was funny”…

It's great to have Dave Graney and Clare Moore back at Trinity Sessions after last year's sold out show. Dave and Clare will be doing two sets with an interval.

Kevin Bennett and The Flood with
The Yearlings and The Stable Hands

We're giving this another go after two Covid false starts- Kevin Bennett and the Flood with The Yearlings and The Stable Hands. It's been a long wait but it will definitely be worth it. 

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.

Rhythms magazine calls The Flood ‘the best Australian roots band since The Dingoes.’

On this double bill show helping to celebrate Trinity Sessions' 20th Birthday will be The Yearlings with their band The Stable Hands.
