Golden Guitar winner Tom Curtain is on the road with his Katherine Outback Experience team in support of his album, We're Still Here and he's playing in Gloucester.

With his horse, dog and country music shows, Tom is celebrating the resilience of rural communities and all shows are interactive with the younger audience members getting right into the spirit and learning all they can about horses and dogs and then dancing and singing along with Tom.

Tom and his entourage will be at Gloucester Showground on Saturday, January 18 to put on show combining horsemanship, horse liberty, hilarious working dog demonstration and live country music.

The show is family friendly and very interactive with the audience, especially with the kids. Tom is also the ambassador for Dolly's Dream and wrote the anti-bullying song, Speak Up of which he enlists the help of the children attending the show to help him sing the song.

As well as welcoming their son, Harry Hugo, to the family earlier this month (who is touring with them), Tom released his new album. The feature single, She Gave Us The Song, is a collaboration with fellow Golden Guitar winners Sara Storer and Lee Kernaghan and a tribute to legendary songwriter and artist in her own right, Joy McKean.

Gates open at 5pm with the show running from 6pm to 8.30pm. Tickets are available at www.tomcurtain.com.au or at the gate.
