ARIA + 8x Golden Guitar artist Fanny Lumsden’s is celebrating 10 years of her Country Halls Tour. The very first show of the 10 year anniversary tour will be right here in Kangaroo Valley at the hall on April 22nd.

The tour had humble beginnings in three halls in the Riverina in 2012 raising money for Blazeaid. Since then it has gone from strength to strength with Fanny and her small team performing in more than 200 halls all over Australia, raising funds for communities with their all-in-community-night-out.

“I can’t believe that those three halls in 2012 have turned into 10 years and over 200 halls all over the country. As an application based tour, where the halls apply to host” Fanny explains, 

“I am blown away every year by the sheer number of halls who apply to host original live music”

Fanny Lumsden, released her third studio album, Fallow in 2020. It debuted at #10 on the ARIA charts, going to #1 on the Country ARIA charts for two consecutive weeks, took out Best Country Album at the 2020 ARIA Awards, and swept the field taking home five CMAA Golden Guitar Awards including Album of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, Single of the Year, Video Clip of the Year and Alt Country Album of the Year.
