ON THE MAIN STAGE
Matinee Concert Series 2017
Chris Cook Band - The Big Country Show
A lot of what Chris Cook is about is preserving something from another era. In the main, this is preserving the type of music he plays and prefers – Country Music, although this also extends to anything old particularly Model T Fords. Chris is also very keen to preserve the rural connection between country musicians and this element is obvious in his Shows and recordings.
Chris Cook’s music crosses the borders between Australian and American country music. The Chris Cook Band is made up of three collectors of old and obscure music – the music that is lost or easily forgotten from today’s radio.
The Band presents and wraps up this music with an extremely tight brand of energetic entertainment.
