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. 

Bar from 6.30pm, Doors from 7pm, Music 7.30pm

Fundraising Concert for Peace, Love & Understanding

2022 ELC Fundraiser poster med.jpg

Trinity Sessions is helping out with this important fundraiser - it's a slightly different arrangement than our usual Trinity Sessions but it's a great lineup and a great cause.

 

It’s 2022, but the great question asked by Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello (and others) back in the 1970s is as relevant and urgent as ever. 3.2 billion people—a quarter of the world’s population—live in conflict zones—Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Myanmar, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, the list goes on. World-wide refugee flows are bigger than ever. Back home in the Land of Oz refugees from conflict zones struggle to make ends meet. And—the great issue of the moment—First Nations Australians still don’t have constitutional recognition in their own country!

The Effective Living Centre and Trinity Sessions are excited to bring you a Concert for Peace, Love and Understanding, with a fantastic line-up of local artists bringing their personal responses to the table in a fabulous afternoon of music, poetry and dance.

You will marvel to, sing to, dance to Vonda Last, Yiana and Elena, Fergus Maximus, Claire and the Vagaband, Ash and Joseph, Jill Wherry, Hebridean Dancers, Hot Goslings, Women with Latitude ……

Proceeds go to Circle of Friends, supporting asylum seekers and refugees in the community and in detention, and Unley Statement from the Heart Support Group, promoting Voice, Treaty, Truth.

Book your tickets through Humanitix—$40 adult, $30 concession, $15 live-stream.

Donations welcome. Please give generously.

Sunday August 14—doors and bar open from 2.00pm, live concert from 2.30pm.

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.

Brian Cadd and Band
With Nathan May 26/8
with Ryan Martin John 27/8

Brian-Cadd.jpg

Brian Cadd remains one of Australia’s greatest treasures; a true Statesman of songwriting and recording. See him with his band in the intimate Trinity Sessions over two nights. Brian Cadd is a bona-fide music legend. Platinum album seller. ARIA Hall of Famer. Multiaward winning songwriter. Recipient of an Order of Australia (AM). This powerhouse singer and piano player still rocks in today’s retro-pumped music business and is as energised and creative as ever. In 2019 Brian returned to his old stomping ground in Nashville to record Silver City under the masterful guidance of producer Mark Moffatt, and has relocated to the heart of his musical influences Woodstock NY where he is embracing the musical culture and connections of the area.

Brian Cadd's career began with the iconic Australian band The Groop in 1966 and he wrote all of their many hit singles and albums including Woman You’re Breaking Me and Such A
Lovely Way. He then formed Axiom with Glenn Shorrock, heavily influenced by The Band and dubbed Australia’s first supergroup, he was the primary songwriter and penned hits
including Little Ray of Sunshine, Arkansas Grass and My Baby’s Gone before the band broke up in England in 1969.

The following years saw many gold and platinum records as a solo artist and an array of prestigious awards for film scores, title songs and TV themes. In addition he produced many acts and wrote much-loved hits including Ginger Man, Let Go, Don’t You Know It’s Magic and Alvin Purple. During this period, following the enormous success of his first eponymous album Brian Cadd, he recorded several more giant albums including Parabrahm, Moonshine and the platinum soundtrack to the worldwide-acclaimed cult surf movie Morning of the Earth.

Brian's career has seen him write, produce, record and perform with a cavalcade of legendary musicians and his career keeps on expanding as he continues to tour. It is exciting tom have Brian back at Trinity Sessions after two sold out shows in 2021.

We have two local supports. Friday 26 August - Nathan May and Saturday 27 August - Ryan Martin John

Special Patrol with Axe and the Ivory

SOLD OUT.png

Special Patrol are getting back together with a cast of past members to celebrate 20 years of Trinity Sessions; don't miss your chance to see one of Adelaide's unique bands.
Axe and the Ivory are supporting.
The last album Special Patrol released was The Stranger's Dozen way back in 2009 and it's been a long time since they have been back on stage together.
In true Special Patrol form, The Strangers Dozen is devastatingly intuitive; radiant, full bodied, darkly undertoned and yet simultaneously bright eyed. From the street pop swagger of Ordinary Life and sultry lilt of In Between You and Me to the inferred resolution of My Reason – this is a record that sees Myles Mayo and co back in full splendoured swing.
They are known for their delivery of melodic, passionate and intelligent musical landscapes.
Myles Mayo songs hit on a very real level, his observations are familiar scenes, those of personal triumph and tragedy, playing out like a video jukebox of shame or glory or both.

Melody Pool with Orelia

Melody-Pool Poster.jpg

Time to welcome back one of our favourite Australian artists Melody Pool, helping to celebrate 20 years of Trinity Sessions; supporting original songwriting and artists.

Following the release tour for Deep Dark Savage Heart, her second album in 2016, Melody went on to share a more literal account of her experiences when she featured on Australian Story in 2017. At this time, Melody announced she was to take a break from music to focus on rehabilitating her mental health.

During her time off, Melody focused on writing her third studio album which she’s self-produced and recorded on her home on a 160 acre farm in regional NSW. It draws on her recovery and progress and also the angst and pain experienced along the way

In 2022, Melody Pool tours Australia with new music penning its way into her sets as she toured the east coast playing to sold out rooms, exploring a new and re-birthed brilliance hinting at subjects of empowerment, resurgence and uprising. We are so excited to have Melody back at Trinity Sessions, she won so many new fans who saw her at her electric show with us last year. Can't wait for what she has in store in September. She is a 'criminally under-appreciated artist'.

Supporting Melody is the exciting Adelaide band Orelia. We first heard them on Radio Adelaide's Songcatcher and were blown away. Orelia create songs of love, loss and hope, combining melodic keys, soaring vocals, smooth bass and energetic percussion. Their single, 'Parachute' released in march this year puts you in the driver seat of your first car, on your first road trip, to see your first love, feeling like you are floating on a breeze. We've fallen in love.
