Buchanan brings his Cavalry Road

ARIA nominee and nine-time Golden Guitar winner Colin Buchanan brings his new album, Calvary Road, to Alstonville this month.

The live concert will see the singer / songwriter share remarkable stories in song about ordinary people.

Buchanan said the tour marks a new sound for the artist, who is best-known as a children's entertainer, and sees him return to the country music scene.

"There's power in the collision of story and music and I'm hoping that's what will make Calvary Road a satisfying evening for anyone, regardless of what they believe," Colin Buchanan said.

"I'd written a bunch of songs over the years that reflected my faith but weren't what I'd call 'in-house' Christian songs.

They are little nuggets of reflection, portraits and stories of faith 'in the wild frontiers', as I call it.

"I've found the songs on Calvary Road to be quite universal - ready to resonate, stimulate, challenge - across a wide spectrum.

"There's a lot of power in the collision of story and music. I'm hoping that Calvary Road is a satisfying album for anyone, regardless of what they believe."

Dublin-born Colin Buchanan is an ARIA, APRA and nine-time Golden Guitar winning singer / songwriter whose diverse career includes being a beloved ABC TV Play School presenter, sought-after hit song collaborator, Australia's #1 Christian kids artist and regular panelist on ABC Sydney Drive's Thank God It's Friday comedy radio program with Richard Glover.

In partnership with charity Compassion Australia, Calvary Road will tour throughout regional NSW and QLD to bring these stories and music to life.

Compassion Australia CEO Tim Hanna says the orgabnisation enkioys partnering with the artist.

"We've had a great long standing relationship with Colin, and we know that this tour will be a great opportunity for Australians to hear his heart, but also for all those children and sharing their stories as well," Mr Hanna said.
