January 2015

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.

February 2015

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.
