Fanny Lumsden’s Country Halls Tour

Raising funds for halls and communities, these shows are a rare opportunity for the locals to pop down the road to see top-class live original music in an 'all-in community night out'.
Newham Mechanics Institute, Rochford Road, Newham VIC, Australia

Fanny Lumsden’s 7th Country Halls Tour is coming to our hall and it’s going to raise the roof!

Enjoy top-class live original music with 2x ARIA nominated, 2x Golden Guitar winner, Fanny Lumsden and her band, The Prawn Stars at the Newham Mechanics Institute.

Into its 7th tour, Fanny will have brought joy and music to over 130 halls and communities by its completion next year. The western NSW born and raised singer songwriter has had a huge few years since the release of her second album, Real Class Act, which not only debuted at number one on the Country ARIA chart (only independent to do so), it went on to win the AIR Country Album of the year, be nominated for an ARIA award, four Golden Guitar awards (with her film clip for Elastic Waistband winning a GG this year) and three CMC awards.

The Country Halls Tour first kicked off in 2012, raising money for BLAZEAID and helping Riverina communities rebuild after floods. It’s since visited halls all over the Country helping to keep the spirit of the hall alive, both financially and with the energy and enthusiasm it brings with it.

It’s a one of a kind tour, with totem tennis, stories, incredible musicianship by Fanny’s band The Prawnstars (nee Thrillseekers), features a feed by a local community group and performances by local acts. Run by Fanny and her husband Dan, there’s no BS. It’s just straight up good music, good people and a good time.

IT’S AN ALL IN COMMUNITY NIGHT OUT. With the past two tours nearly entirely sold out, don’t muck around – grab your tickets now!
