Description

Australian folktronic artist Tobias and CMC and Golden Guitar award winner Fanny Lumsden are excited to announce they have teamed up with Rotary, and will be taking their music out on the road and will be perfroming at The Longreach Civic Centre on Thursday 20th July.

A mutual love and respect for Australian music and community has motivated these two celebrated artists to join forces and meet the Australian live outback audiences head on. Both Tobias and Fanny Lumsden have enjoyed much success having various singles receiving national airplay on Australian radio, along with performing at festivals throughout Australia, and sharing the stage with some of the country’s biggest names.

Tobias and Fanny Lumsden will be kicking off their shows in Longreach on Thursday 20th July and will be making their way through a host of venues including small halls, ending the tour in the small outback town of Yaraka on Sunday 23rd July, a town boasting a population of just over 100 people! "What I love about performing music in Australia is connecting with the communities I travel too. I think both my music and Fanny's will really resonate with these audience. It’s also really exciting to team up with an organization like Rotary, it's a wonderful feeling being able to give back to a community and participate in bringing people together rather than being the 'attraction' of an event" says Tobias.

Tobias and Fanny Lumsden met when they both performed at the 2016/2017 Woodford Folk Festival and discussed the importance of not only sharing music, but using music to help community organizations for local causes that many of us may be unaware of on the east coast of Australia, like the drought. No stranger to playing to Country audiences, Fanny is looking forward to the shows in July - "we can't wait to get out and swap some stories with the folks of central Queensland! These are my favorite types of shows and it will be the first time we have got the chance to get out there and share our music!' says Fanny.
