Songstress Kasey Chambers is about to hit the Tweed coast again, ready to perform songs and hits from her entire back catalogue with very special friends Ashleigh Dallas, Harry Hookey and Kevin Bennett.

In a two hour show, audiences will be treated to the magic of Kasey’s hit songs from albums that have spanned the last decade, combined with the sounds of two upcoming artists who are fast becoming names on the live scene, Ashleigh Dallas and Harry Hookey, as well as much awarded singer/songwriter and front man for The Flood, Kevin Bennett.

Kasey chambers‘I am so excited to be back on the road again soon playing old songs and new ones from The Captain Barricades and Brickwalls… all the way through to Little Bird, Wreck & Ruin and everything in between’, says Kasey. ‘It also gives me a chance to share the stage with three of the best artists in Australia… great friend and talented singer/songwriter Kevin Bennett and my two favourite new singer/songwriters Harry Hookey and Ashleigh Dallas.’

Hailing from country music royalty, Ashleigh Dallas is the granddaughter of renowned country musician, Rex Dallas and has been part of Kasey’s touring band for the last two years playing mandolin and fiddle. Ashleigh is gearing up to release her debut album Dancing With A Ghost on September 27, having already unveiled the first track from the album Me and performs regularly around the Central Coast of NSW and in her home town of Tamworth.

Audiences have been blown away by Harry Hookey’s performances and he is fast becoming one of the most exciting acts to hit the live scene.  Fresh out of the studio from recording his debut album with his band (comprising his two brothers on guitar and Nash Chambers on the drums), Harry gigs relentlessly around his home city of Melbourne and has performed gigs across the US and showcased at the Americana Festival.

Kevin Bennett, well-respected indigenous singer/songwriter with Sydney roots band The Flood, ARIA Nominee and two time CMAA Gold Guitar winner, writes relevant, contemporary Australian music containing elements of Blues, Rock and Country. Having served his apprenticeship in rock bands Moving Pictures, The Honeymoon and Chasin The Train, KB began The Flood as a vehicle for his own songs. They have since performed at numerous festivals, whilst KB has toured with Kevin Welch, The Highwaymen, Kim Richey, The Band, The Neville Brothers, Gregory Page and many more.

Kasey Chambers and Special Guests perform at Twin Towns Showroom tonight – Friday September 13.
