Blues trio hit the­atre

Dog Wood get set for CD re­lease

Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE WHAT’S ON -

THE Dog Wood Three have just spent the last win­ter (and then some) record­ing and com­plet­ing their first self-ti­tled record, The Dog Wood Three.

The trio that calls the cold cli­mate moun­tains of Stan­thorpe home con­sists of Ray Luhrmann, Ceccy Van Heu­men and Grant Thorn­ton.

“The band are happy to an­nounce that the record is fin­ished and we will be per­form­ing the al­bum on Septem­ber 29 at the Stan­thorpe Lit­tle The­atre from 7.30pm with friend and guest Trent McNa­mara, of Heart­worn High­way, sup­port­ing,” Ceccy Van Heu­men said.

“The new record is an in­de­pen­dent re­lease that has 11 songs telling of coun­try liv­ing, loves won and lost and life on the road.

“If you lis­ten closely there’s sure to be char­ac­ters, places and feel­ings you’ve known and felt.

“Th­ese folk tales and hill­billy blues are about real peo­ple with real lives and are de­liv­ered with a raw power that you can’t ig­nore.”

The group say they’re at home play­ing in pubs, par­ties, the­atres, winer­ies, art gal­leries, on hippy com­mu­ni­ties, for com­mu­nity ben­e­fits and for any good cause.

They have a long his­tory of play­ing and trav­el­ling this planet to­gether and love to share their mu­sic.

“The group are look­ing for­ward to getting back on the road to pro­mote the new re­lease and air­ing the songs to new au­di­ences and fans,” Ceccy said.
