On a jour­ney with Troy

Coun­try singer launches al­bum and life story at close-and-per­sonal show at Rooty Hill RSL on Fri­day

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE -

IF YOU don’t have any­thing planned for Fri­day, then you’d bet­ter get in quick.

Rooty Hill RSL has a cou­ple of out­stand­ing en­ter­tain­ment op­tions, both with a stamp of the best in the busi­ness.

Coun­try star Troy Cas­sar-Da­ley has cho­sen the lo­cal club to launch his au­to­bi­og­ra­phy Things I Carry Around and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing al­bum of the same name, which is his 10th.

The al­bum en­cap­su­lates his jour­ney as a song writer.

It fo­cuses on sto­ries of Cas­sar-Da­ley’s fam­ily – love and loss have been wo­ven into song and they take his au­di­ences on a jour­ney through­out his life.

Cas­sar-Da­ley told The Stan­dard last month his Western Syd­ney fans could ex­pect an up-close-and-per­sonal show with an in­ti­mate en­vi­ron­ment.

“For peo­ple that have been to my shows be­fore it will be so dif­fer­ent — it will be very stripped back,” Cas­sar-Da­ley said.

“It is just me and my gui­tar in a lounge; there will also be a ques­tion and an­swer sec­tion.”

The 47 year old con­fessed this new al­bum was “all heart and no head”.

“It is spe­cial to me and my only full record of real emo­tion,” he said.

“Stylis­ti­cally it is like the mu­sic I lis­tened to as a child – there are cruis­ing songs but also get-upand-go type songs.”

Tick­ets are $99 which in­cludes din­ner, drink on ar­rival, the show and Cas­sar-Da­ley’s au­to­bi­og­ra­phy or the al­bum.

If coun­try mu­sic isn’t your thing, you can skip across the car­pet and take in the monthly House of Fun comedy night.

The pop­u­lar ses­sion fea­tures some of Aus­tralia’s best comics.

And, best of all, the evening is free to mem­bers while vis­i­tors will pay $20.
