Live music will make a comeback at The Crossing Theatre on Saturday night.

Tamworth country music singer Brent Larkham will take to the stage as part of the Great Southern Nights initiative.

The NSW government along with Destination NSW and the Australian Recording Industry Association have organised COVID-safe performances to revive the live music and entertainment sectors.

Dubbed the ‘land of 1000 gigs’, events have played all over NSW in November as part of Australian music month to help the affected industry.

The Crossing Theatre manager Scott Pollock said he’s excited to host the event this Saturday.

“I really can’t wait,” Mr Pollock said.

“I’m quite new to the area and I’ve only been here for six months, so I’m very much looking forward to seeing everything as it used to be.

“We’re fortunate to be a part of this process which is great in getting live acts back again.”

Brent Larkham is a singer-songwriter with international success across Europe and America.

Blending country, rock and blues, Larkham has recorded three albums including his latest ‘Voodoo Town’.

“He’s produced records and performed overseas but he’s a Tamworth guy,” Mr Pollock said.

“We’ve selected him specifically so he can suit the occasion – and it will be his first time here.

“To be able to get some funding to support these artists is great as they’re the ones that make this place rock.”

COVID restrictions will still be in place with people having to book their selected tables for a maximum of 10 and no dancing.

The event will also be for people aged 18 years and over.

“We’re going to make this as fun as possible and make it a good experience,” Mr Pollock said.

“People can book as a group and sit with their friends.

“We’re fortunate we get to do this so it’s important that we start to celebrate as much as we can – we’ve all been in the same boat.”
