Gordie Tentrees

Master storyteller and multi-instrumental award nominated Canadian Gordie Tentrees is coming to Humph Hall as part of his Australian tour!

This authentic road poet travels North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, UK & Ireland with 8 records behind him never repeating himself on stage. From Celtic Connections (Glasgow, Scotland) to the National Folk Festival (Canberra, AU) his ability to hold an audience, weave melody, while juggling the dark truth with comedic light is infectious.

Performed 750 concerts in 11 countries during the past 4 years alone with foot percussion, harmonica, resonator/acoustic guitar and masterful storytelling.  His new release (8th) MEAN OLD WORLD is inspired by his journey navigating the child welfare system in Canada as both a foster child  & foster parent. Influenced by touring with friends Fred Eaglesmith, Mary Gauthier, Steve Poltz & Kelly Joe Phelps, Tentrees is just getting started
