Fanny Lumsden

Castlereagh Hotel
Friday 8:00pm

With 4 stars by Rolling Stone and Sydney Morning Herald, the Western NSW born Fanny Lumsden delivers cracking alt country with a whole lot of heart.   Fanny Lumsden has been called ‘A breath of fresh country air’ by Rolling Stone Magazine and ‘Australia’s answer to Americana’ by Rhythms Magazine. Her debut record Small Town Big Shot, which came in at #6 on the Country ARIA Chart and with both her singles reaching #1 on the Country Music Channel, it’s no wonder she was asked to present a CMAA award alongside Paul Kelly and was nominated for CMC New OZ Artist of the year. With her sold out Annual Country Halls Tour the Western NSW raised Fanny Lumsden is, as The Australian said,‘a rising singer songwriter turning heads’.
