James Thomson @ GNTP


Date: Friday, 09 January 2015
Time: 7:00 PM - 11:30 PM
Location: Great Northern Trading Post, Laguna NSW

James Thomson is a young, critically acclaimed singer and songwriter. He released a self titled debut album in late 2012 which went on to receive nation wide airplay and a swathe of positive reviews.

While he has certainly taken up the long tradition of the singer/songwriter; Thomson adds enough of his own perspective absorbed from a plethora of music; gospel, jazz, early blues, folk music and more, to craft songs that feel simultaneously familiar and new.

The Wild Comforts @ GNTP


Date: Friday, 16 January 2015
Time: 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Location: Great Northern Trading Post, Laguna NSW

The Wild Comforts are a dirty country band ready to make you wish your wife left you, your ute was broken and your dog was dead so you could write country songs too…

The Wild Comforts sound is as unique as their story; from traditional country songs like ‘Disappearing House’ to the more upbeat ‘Every Girl Carries A Gun. Their debut album is split into two parts, with a bunch of guest musicians playing instruments such as mandolin, violin, pedal steel, harmonica and piano. Their live set boasts a heavier, more energetic version of the songs.

The Wild Comforts are dedicated to bringing their brand of country and quality songwriting to whoever will listen. They are set to release a Bill Chambers produced album in January 2015 with a national tour and we’re proud to be a part of all that too. See you there with spurs on, Lagunatics.

Wollombi Markets

Visit historic Wollombi on the holiday Monday of each long weekend (Easter, June and October) and on Australia Day for this great market of over 100 stalls, including local produce and crafts, plants, clothes, tools, bric-a-brac and much more.

This market attracts thousands of visitors to the beautiful countryside of the Wollombi Valley in the lower Hunter. Wollombi is just over an hour from the outskirts of Sydney and Newcastle and 30 minutes from Cessnock.

As each market is run by volunteers from a different local community group, they benefit a cross section of this small rural community, including the Wollombi Bush Fire Brigade and Wollombi Public School P&C.

Aussie themed dress ups more than welcome, actually expected ;) We’re going all out full scale Oz for the day so you can look forward to ice cold cans, games and maybe even a prawn or two on the barbie as well as the odd sausage sanger.

Trainwreck Trio @ GNTP


Date: Friday, 30 January 2015
Time: 7:00 PM - 11:30 PM
Location: Great Northern Trading Post, Laguna NSW

If you were one of the unlucky few who missed it last time we got trainwrecked, you’re in luck.

Put simply, Trainwreck Trio is the current buzz party band of the Australian Country Music Scene and they certainly reinforced that reputation when they played last at GNTP. After debuting at Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2012 & recording an unforgettable live album at the Gympie Muster later that year, Trainwreck Trio has since developed a reputation as the hardest live touring act in Australia.

Kris Morris @ GNTP


Date: Friday, 06 February 2015
Time: 7:00 PM - 11:30 PM
Location: Great Northern Trading Post, Laguna NSW

With equal measures of country heartbreak, down-home blues and rock’n’roll swagger Kris Morris throws down songs that cut deep; full of life and truth. He lights things up and makes them burn. It’s brokenness made beautiful. And somehow always with a wry smile.

With a bunch of new songs and a few prods from his new friends Kris found himself up at Nash Chambers’ Foggy Mountain Studios making a record with Kasey Chambers and Bill Chambers as producers and an all star rhythm section. Recorded totally live, the album is a spontaneous explosion of heart and soul. Dirty, loud, bleak and beautiful. A break up record for the ages. The album titled “Ruins” was be released in September 2014.
