20-years ago Kasey Chambers released her ground-breaking debut album ‘The Captain’. “The Captain’ would go double-platinum in Australia, reach the Top 50 of the Billboard Country albums and lead her to pick up ARIA Awards for Best Country Album and Best Female Artist, and enabled Kasey to launch her music to the world. She followed up with 11 more albums – each one cementing her place in the pantheon of global country artists – and garnering her a cabinet full of awards including 10 APRA Music Awards, 12 ARIA Awards, 2 Mo Awards, numerous CMAA Awards .. and more. She is a guiding light – an inspiration to women in music everywhere – and continues a hectic touring schedule in addition to being ‘mom’ to three children.
And ... to this day … ‘The Captain’ remains the cornerstone of her outstanding career.
20 years after her first solo appearance at Bluesfest it is both fitting and prophetic that Kasey returns for her 20th Anniversary and our 30th Anniversary. In celebration she will appear for a first time exclusive performance, playing the songs of The Captain alongside a 'best of' Kasey Chambers set. This is a performance not to be missed.
