Kasey’s Campfire tour a homecoming
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.
