Our Beer Garden is open for food and drinks from 12noon.

The Triffid has just turned two and is already one of Australia’s most loved live music venues for punters and artists alike.

For our first year the Triffid garden was home for the much-loved Triffid Roots we worked alongside Sarah Howells to ensure that our Sunday session was second to none.

The summer of 2016/2017 will see The Triffid re-invent our Sunday sessions.

Based on a passion for spirited acoustic music we have partnered with the Americana Association of Australia for present AMERICANA SESSIONS FREE EVERY SUNDAY IN THE TRIFFID GARDEN.

Every Sunday lovers of Folk, Country, Rhythm & Blues, Blues and Rock and Roll will be presented with some of the most respected artists around. This will all be happening in relaxed surrounds of the Triffid garden with a brand new menu for the foodies and plenty of other musical and beverage surprises.

This may sound like a scene in a movie – sunsets on the beach, toes in the sand, writing songs and strumming a guitar, but for Alys Ffion, this is how she became one of Australia’s promising singer-songwriters.

A high school drop out who chose to pursue music full time, she relentlessly worked on her songwriting with the intention of one day playing her songs on the other side of the Pacific Ocean that she was gazing across. By the age of 18 she inked a US publishing deal and secured support from Martin Guitars.  Now at 20 years of age, Alys is on the cusp of something really huge.

Alys spends her time between Nashville and Queensland, whilst writing constantly and recording at various studios during her travels. Building a solid body of work through collaboration and solo endeavors has been Alys’ mission, but now her focus has shifted towards her own artist project which has major label interest.

Producing a blend of intoxicating melodies, having a deep conviction to storytelling and youthful optimism, plus her acoustic sound and pop sensibilities, have earned Alys collaborations with renowned songwriters and producers such as Brian Kennedy, Chad Carlson, Jim Jonsin, Dan Kanter and Jeff Cohen. Charming and captivating both onstage and off, Alys has released two singles, “Almost Love” and “Gasoline” – the latter being a runner up in the 2015 International Acoustic Music Awards.

Expect to hear quite a bit more from the up-and-coming chanteuse in the near future.
