Travellin’ Still - The Music of Slim Dusty

Starring Pete Denahy and the Travelling Country Band

Sunday, 18 March 2018 4:00 PM Export event

When Slim Dusty’s Travelling Country Band played their last full show with Slim in 2002, the band members all went their separate ways.
Fast-forward to 2016, at the Slim Dusty Music Festival in Kempsey, NSW, they found themselves on-stage together for the first time in years. And it felt like only yesterday as the old songs, friendships and memories came flooding back. One comment from an audience member, “This show has to go on the road! got them all thinking, why not? There aren’t many bands around where all the members were part of the Slim Dusty Show!
So, with the approval of Joy and the Family, Rod Coe, Mike Kerin, Jeff Mercer and Peter Denahy have decided to take the show on the road..
And what an experience this will be; five musicians who will be sharing stories, some of their own music and of course the songs of Slim Dusty which will sound pretty darn genuine because they’ll be played by his own original band!

Don't miss this one.
