BENNETT, BOWTELL & URQUHART

ALBUM LAUNCH - Weeds

DOORS 8PM

SHOW 8:30PM

When they first got together they had no idea that within two years, Bennett, Bowtell and Urquhart – BBU for short – would be stepping up to collect not one but two Golden Guitars – for Best Group and Best Alt. Country Album – for their 2016 self-titled debut album. It was at the 2015 Country Music Festival in Tamworth that the trio had first performed together in what they thought would be a one-off affair. The experience proved so enjoyable they decided not only to do it again, but to then go into the studio and see what happened.

“Bennett Bowtell & Urquhart (BBU) is the sum of incredible parts,” fellow Golden Guitar recipient Shane Nicholson reckons. “Separately amazing and collectively awe-inspiring. Watching them sing is like watching magic being done, except there’s no way to explain or rationalise it. It’s otherworldly and defies science.”

Recorded and coproduced by Kevin, Lyn and Felicity with 2017 CMAA Musician of the Year, guitarist Glen Hannah – he’s also Felicity’s hubby! – Weeds was mixed by Ted Howard, another multi-award winner, including an Engineer of the Year ARIA Award for his work on Yothu Yindi’s 1991 album Tribal Voice.

The first single lifted off the album, the celebratory Love or Money, made the Top Ten in the Amrap Regional and Country Weekly Download Charts.

“It’s so easy to forget how much fun can be had when you relax and just go with the pleasures of a song,” is Sydney Morning Heraldwriter Bernard Zuel’s assessment. It’s such a pleasure to listen to.”


Three unique voices, three strong personalities, three respected songwriters – together, Bennett Bowtell & Urquhart have the most remarkable musical chemistry, a real meeting of minds, hearts and sensibilities… and “We love having a good cry on stage,” Felicity admits with a laugh.

“The unique BBU blend is one of Australia’s finest combos,” notes ABC Bundaberg’s Scott Lamond. “When matched with an intimate theatre, town hall or a festival stage, the captivating live performance showcases three of the best in one show. Not to be missed.”
