EARLIER: COUNTRY musician Tom Curtain is heading to Kumbia next month to showcase his latest album, Territory Time.

The Kumbia and District Campdraft Association will host the gig at the Kumbia Race Club on Saturday, February 3 to support the club's annual campdraft later this year.

Mr Curtain first discovered his passion for music when he was working on Mt Sanford Station in the Northern Territory.

It was here he met head stockman and musician Martin Oakes, who encouraged him to pick up a guitar and write songs about his experiences in the bush.

This eventually led to the release of Mr Curtain's first album, Smack Bang!, which rocketed to the top spot on the Australian Country Music Charts.

He followed up his debut debut album with Heatwave.

Mr Curtain's latest album, released in November, is a reflection of his life living and working in the Northern Territory, running the Katherine Outback Experience tourist attraction and training dogs and horses.

The first single released off the album, Never Never Land, is a finalist for two 2018 Golden Guitar Awards, while the title track landed the number one spot on the Australian Country Tracks Charts.

Mr Oakes will join the Territory Time tour as it makes its way across regional Queensland.

Gates for the concert open at 4pm.

Mr Curtain and Mr Oakes will take to the stage at 7pm.

A bar will be open until midnight, and there will be a barbecue.

Limited seating available.
