Hot on the heels of the successful launch of Coster Country Take II at the 2019 Tamworth Country Music Festival, Tracy Coster is hitting the road for NSW wine country stopping at the small towns of Gulgong and Ilford.
It’s a long time between drinks in terms of Coster Country albums, which really only ever happened due to public demand and an inherent love and respect for the works of Stan Coster, the man. Stan’s daughter has done him proud, releasing albums of her own, as well as those paying tribute to the much-loved scribe who had 76 songs cut by the late, great Slim Dusty.
Released in 2004, the original Coster Country won Australian Independent Country Album of the Year in the Southern Stars Awards at Mildura, followed by the 2005 Vocal Collaboration of the Year Golden Guitar with Anne Kirkpatrick for ‘Back to the Saltbush Plains’. It’s one of several standout tracks on the first Coster Country release.
This new album features duets with good friends Beccy Cole, Glenn Jones, Jeff Brown, Chad Morgan and Tracy’s sister, Jayne Coster-Kelly, who has just recently found her voice. Tracy loves the idea of taking her grass roots, up close and personal show to small halls around the country just as the country pioneers did.
Don’t miss your opportunity to come along to a Tracy Coster show. With her bubbly personality and deep respect for tradition, it’s an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.
TRACY COSTER WINE COUNTRY MINI-TOUR 2019; Gulgong Bowling Club, 6.30pm Friday, February 8; Ilford Hall, 1pm, Sunday February 10.
