Laurencia has been presenting A Little Bit Country since arriving in Alice Springs from
Melbourne in 2004. Her love of alternative country music was nurtured while travelling in
the United States and from frequenting the Port Fairy Folk Festival in Victoria. Her interest in
community radio was sparked by her love of 3RRR in Melbourne and shows like Twang and
Off the Record.
There’s a new way of playing a banjo – A music show that sits on the edge of country.
A Little Bit Country is a music show. Think Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, Gillian Welch and Sal Kimber. Supporting independent artists, Australian artists, new music and old greats. Often the show is based on a theme, like lonesome, heartache, whiskey, trains or leaving. Laurencia loves having guests on the show, those people who love this kind of music and
want to talk about it or sing about it.
