The Pigs invite you to join them in a very special bluegrass celebration of Australian pop music, as they perform songs from their new album, The Pigs’ Home Brew: 13 Aussie Classics.

Also expect many of The Pigs’ greatest hits, taken from a career spanning 10 years, 4 albums, 1 EP, concerts all over Australia and the world, countless TV and radio appearances, squillions of beautiful fans and 4 very painful blisters. The Pigs’ Homebrew Tour is an event that’ll test your Reg Grundies and quite possibly, change your life.

“Heading out on the road with a new album is both exciting and nerve wracking at the same time.

Call it a trip down memory lane and a new musical adventure all in the same show!”

“The Freedom Ride tour will cover many parts of our great nation and bring with it songs of social conscience, songs of hope and stories about us as Australians and the things that make us unique. Happy and sad yarns are the way our lives generally fall and I want you to watch the big door swing open on this old bus and climb aboard as we journey wherever the road may take us together on this Freedom Ride”.

Troy Cassar-Daley has a reputation amongst his peers in the Australian music industry as being the most loved and respected singer/songwriter in country music. With a career that has spanned over 20 years, throughout this time Troy has been awarded numerous accolades including 4 ARIA Awards, 26 Golden Guitar Awards, 2 APRA Country Song of The Year Awards, 9 Deadlys and 4 CMAA Entertainer of The Year Awards.
