Kasey’s Camp­fire tour a home­com­ing

Midwest Times - - ENTERTAINMENT - Francesca Mann

Aus­tralia’s queen of coun­try Kasey Cham­bers is no stranger to re­gional towns, reg­u­larly in­clud­ing the small­est and most dis­tant towns in her busy tour sched­ule.

Hav­ing re­leased her 12th stu­dio al­bum, Camp­fire, ear­lier this year, Cham­bers has hit the road once again and will re­turn to Ger­ald­ton on Novem­ber 15.

While many mu­si­cians are quick to skip re­gional towns like Ger­ald­ton, the 42-year-old sees it as an op­por­tu­nity to thank the peo­ple who sup­ported her in her early days.

“It’s al­ways fun to go up to Ger­ald­ton — we al­ways get a lot of sup­port from around that area,” she said. “Re­gional ar­eas were a big part of my life. I grew up spend­ing a lot of time on the Nullar­bor Plain with my fam­ily.

“Early on in my ca­reer, I played in a lot of re­gional ar­eas and we had a lot of sup­port be­fore any­one knew who I was.”

The Camp­fire tour is per­formed en­tirely with acous­tic in­stru­ments — there’s no drums, elec­tric gui­tars or amps.

With her dad, Bill, once again join­ing the tour, the in­ti­mate show will be in­ter­twined with sto­ries from Cham­bers’ child­hood and the tales be­hind her much-loved songs.

Cham­bers will bring her Camp­fire tour to Queens Park Theatre on Novem­ber 15.

Tick­ets can be bought at the Ger­ald­ton Civic Cen­tre or via www.qpt.cgg.wa.gov.au.

Cham­bers will also stop by the Moora Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre on Novem­ber 16.
