24 Feb The 14th Annual Slim Dusty Country Music Festival
16th October – 22nd October 2017
The Slim Dusty Family Celebrate a 10 year Anniversary!
The 3 generations of Slim Dusty’s family and the members of the Travelling Country Band (TCB) will all reunite for a very special anniversary performance in October as part of the 2017 Slim Dusty Country Music Festival. It’s hard to believe, but yes, Slim’s family will be celebrating the passing of a full decade since their re-opening of Slim’s beloved home studio Columbia Lane to record the Family Reunion album …the first Family album without Slim.
This resulting album, the hugely successful ‘Slim Dusty Family Reunion’ album was to prove so popular with both fans and the media that it also spawned a sell-out Slim Dusty Family Reunion Concert Tour and then a platinum selling Live Concert DVD in 2008.
This special anniversary concert will be hosted by the Dusty Family Matriarch Joy McKean, on the Saturday evening (21st October). It will surely be one of the highlights of this year’s popular Slim Dusty Country Music Festival held at the Kempsey Showground.
Special guests on the Saturday evening concert include the Lindsay Sisters (Dianne and Sandra Lindsay) and the fabulously talented and multi-award winning bush balladeer Jeff Brown.
This special anniversary concert, promises to take the 2017 festival fans on an exhilarating Australian country music journey, combining projected visual images (from the family archives) with the family’s renditions of many of those Slim favourites. Then of course there will be performances of tracks from their #1 charting 2007 Slim Dusty Family Reunion album.
The 2017 festival will kick off on Monday 16th October and go through until Sunday the 22nd of October.
