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.

CATHERINE BRITT

Catherine spent 6 years in Nashville and has toured, performed and recorded with some of music’s most respected names – Kasey Chambers, Paul Kelly, Sir Elton John, Shane Nicholson,Jerry Salley, Tim Rogers, Dave Faulkner, John Waters & Kenny Chesney – and has worked with some of Australia’s and Americas finest producers.

Her recording career commenced in 2000 when at the age of 14 she released the EP ‘In The Pines’. This release gained critical acclaim and was followed in 2001 by her debut album release ‘Dusty Smiles And Heartbreak Cures’. This was followed in 2006 her second album ‘Too Far Gone’ and her third album ‘Little Wildflower’ which was released in 2008 and contained the stunning ‘What I Did Last Night’ that earned her the 2009 CMAA Female Artist of the Year Award and a nomination as CMC Artist of the Year. She was and still is the youngest Australian to ever perform at the Grand Ole Opry.

Britt has accomplished the most essential job a singer \ songwriter can hope to do: make music that is at once fresh and invigorating enough to speak to a new generation of fans, and yet naturally and firmly rooted in country\folk tradition and the essential truths it has always brought to light.

Catherine also host’s CMC’s ‘Alt Country’ show which will bring’s her to a National audience on a weekly basis. This runs along side of her weekly radio show ‘Saturday Night Country’ an ABC Local Radio Australia wide.
