KASEY CHAMBERS WILL BE THE SPECIAL GUEST OF STEVE EARLE & THE DUKES.

KASEY CHAMBERS, the undisputed First Lady of Australian alternative country music. KASEY CHAMBERS has had a lustrous career achieving many ‘firsts’ such as the first Australian country music artist to successfully cross over into the mainstream charts with a #1 single and album simultaneously: she headlined (with STEVE EARLE) the revered Austin City Limits, the first time a non-American act had done the show in its 26-year history, and more recently has been nominated and performed at the prestigious Americana Music Awards.
KASEY CHAMBERS premium grade singing and songwriting heralded a new generation in Australian music and her reputation for writing albums that showcase the piercing honesty and emotional clarity of her heavy-heart, combined with her vibrant personality has seen her maintain a world-class reputation amongst music peers and fans alike.
A true home-grown star, KASEY CHAMBERS has scooped up a regular swag of APRA and ARIA awards to go with her seven Golden Guitars at the Australian Country Music Awards in Tamworth. Her albums have that timeless appeal: Barricades & Brickwalls (2002), Wayward Angel (2004), Carnival (2006), Rattlin’ Bones (2008) all made it to Number 1 in the charts: her later albums Little Bird (2010), Storybook (2011) and Wreck & Ruin (2012) showcase a diverse spread of the musical style that underpins KASEY CHAMBERS’ glittering career.

STEVE EARLE & THE DUKES
Singer-songwriter, actor, author, political activist, producer – STEVE EARLE is one of America's greatest living storytellers. His tales, encapsulated in songs such as The Galway Girl, Hard-Core Troubadour, Jerusalem , Goodbye’s All We Got Left , Guitar Town, and his anthemic Copperhead Road, have filled 14 albums and earned him 3 Grammy awards. Two years ago he came to Bluesfest solo, nailed it and sold-out his sideshows to boot.
Now STEVE EARLE is back ...and this time he’s bringing THE DUKES along for the ride. He’s showcasing his 15th studio album, The Low Highway - a road record written about what he experienced from the window of his tour bus while travelling across the United States. Backed by a new lineup of  THE DUKES (& Duchess) featuring The Mastersons (Chris Masterson on guitars and wife Eleanor Whitmore on fiddle and vocals), Kelly Looney on bass and Will Rigby on drums, STEVE EARLE rolls through a bumper taster from this new album and his bulging back catalogue, his Dukes providing “a rustic soundtrack laced with an aching fiddle, twangy pedal steel and ragged guitar” – Edmonton Journal
