Kevin Bennett and The Flood at Trinity Sessions with their Golden Guitar winning album ‘Blood Red Ties’.
Kevin Bennett, well-respected indigenous singer/songwriter with Sydney roots band The Flood, has just added a 6th Gold Guitar to his pool room with a win for Best Group at the 2020 CMAA at Tamworth. He is already a 5 time CMAA Gold Guitar winner (with The Flood and Bennett, Bowtell and Urquhart) and Aria Blues and Roots nominee in 2006 (with The Flood for Best Group), writes relevant, contemporary Australian music containing elements of Blues, Rock, Folk and Country – telling stories of where he’s from and where he might be going, his past, present and future….he sings his life.
Having served his apprenticeship in rock bands – Moving Pictures, The Honeymoon and Chasin The Train, KB began The Flood as a vehicle for his own songs. Kevin Bennett ploughs the same fields as Don Walker, The Dingoes and Paul Kelly with an ‘Australian-ness’ that flows naturally through the songs.
The Flood has recorded 5 universally acclaimed albums including ‘The Ballad Of KB’, which was named in Iain Shedden’s Top Twenty Australian Country Albums of all time. The band has performed at the Byron Bay Bluesfest, The Dreaming Festival, Gympie Muster, Narooma Blues Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and are regulars at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Their new work, ‘Blood Red Ties’ is concerned with family, roots, country and ALL the ties that bind. It speaks to, and is informed by, the Australian landscape and the people of this wide, brown land.
Kevin’s band for this Trinity Sessions concert will have bass player Wayne Kellett and banjo, mando, harmonica player Gary Carruthers and Chris Parkinson (The Yearlings) on guitar.
Rhythms magazine calls The Flood ‘the best Australian roots band since The Dingoes.’
