Jack Carty (QLD) Album Tour + Loren Kate

Prolific Australian songwriter Jack Carty released his sixth studio album "Wake to a Bright Morning" on March 11 through his own label, Big Door Recordings. He will tour it across Australia in June-July 2022.

"Wake To A Bright Morning" is a collection of songs written and recorded in living rooms, spare rooms, friends' bedrooms, and the odd studio, between London and Brisbane over the past 3 years. It’s been a labour of love and inspiration. There were no deadlines, there was no pressure, just Jack (and some talented friends) having fun and making music. Honest, layered, lyrical, emotive, and at times acerbic, "Wake To A Bright Morning" is the most accomplished work to date in a growing catalogue of award-winning gems, spanning indie-folk vignettes to cinematic chamber pop.

Jack has been making, touring and sharing original music since 2010, releasing six full-length studio albums and three EPs in that time, and taking home accolades including an APRA Professional Development Award. His songs have sent him around the world - touring extensively across Australia, The UK, Europe, North America and New Zealand, taking in festivals from Austin to Barcelona. Along the way he’s written songs with the likes of Josh Pyke, Dan Wilson, The Once, Katie Noonan and Blair Dunlop, scored a #1 independent album, a Top 40 album, and, built a loyal, grassroots following through great songs and a powerful live show.

Don’t miss this chance to see Jack live in intimate venues across Australia.

Bluegrass Junction

Bluegrass Junction, South Australia's premier bluegrass band, developed from several lifetime's obsession for old-fashioned, hard-core, three-chord, high-lonesome bluegrass. They have a huge repertoire of bluegrass classics - Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, Jimmy Martin, Doyle Lawson, JD Crowe, Jim & Jesse. They don't do alternative, roots, Americana, faux, or pop-grass. And they make no compromises and no apologies for their ‘old school’ approach.

The band consists of ‘South Australian bluegrass royalty’, Trev Warner, Nick Cawthorne, the Bridgland brothers, Geoff and John, while Stephen Loss is a recent addition. Bluegrass Junction was originally formed in 1997. However, the band members go back much earlier. 

Bluegrass Junction are bluegrass veterans. They know where the genre comes from. They respect what makes it work. They play with passion because they love it, which is clearly evident on stage, ensuring a good time for all.
