Curtain’s country calling

By Ashleigh Fielding | posted on January 11, 2018

ENTERTAINER from the outback and true blue Aussie Tom Curtain will head down to Mt Barker and Albany this weekend for three big nights of country music and live demonstrations of cattle station life.

Queensland-born Curtain moved to the Northern Territory in 2001 to work at Mount Sanford Station, and was inspired to write songs about life in the red-dirt state.

This eventuated into the creation of his current business, the Katherine Outback Experience, which includes Curtain breaking-in a wild horse, watching how working dogs are trained, meeting trick horses and a live performance from Curtain himself.

His massive success, including charting at number one on the iTunes Country Album Chart in November, has led to his Katherine Outback Experience show tour stretching across regional WA.

Curtain and his show will visit Mt Barker tomorrow at Frost Park Pavilion at 6pm.

The country party will continue at the Kalgan Stampede on Saturday and at North Albany Football Club at 3pm on Sunday.

Curtain is touring with his new album, Territory Time, and is keen to travel the country.

“I’m really enjoying hitting the road and touring the Territory Time album throughout regional WA and Queensland, to towns and communities who wouldn’t usually get these sorts of events visiting their doorstep,” he said.

“People love the show because it’s raw and real.

“There are no flashing lights or production sets.

“We provide real horse breaking and working dog demonstrations – something the general public wouldn’t usually see.”

Curtain kicked off his tour in early November in Katherine, and has moved through Kununurra, Broome, Karratha, Tom Price, Geraldton, Tamworth and Queensland, and will finish off his country spell in south-west WA.
