Loving Fanny “Cute-as-a-button country poppette…" Lumsden

Saturday 28 April 2012
After ten years of drought and two years of severe flooding, the small communities of the Riverina have suffered a battering. In true rural spirit Fanny Lumsden and her Glorious band have decided to leave the city streets behind and throw a series of old fashioned country hoe-downs in Halls in flood affected towns of the Riverina.
 Fanny and her band will be playing at Tallimba Hall on Friday the 27th April, at Ganmain Hall on Saturday the 28th April and at Boree Creek Hall on Sunday the 29th April.

 A competition is being run in each area for a local singer-songwriter or band, 25 years and under to play at each of the gigs. All they need to do is send in a recording or a youtube clip (quality is not an issue) and the reason they think they should play in 250 words to  by 5pm Wednesday the 18th of April.

 Fanny Lumsden has just released her single “Firing Line’ which is from her upcoming EP which will be released in June. Firing Line was recorded in the Blue Mountains with producer Ian Pritchett (Beautiful Girls, Angus & Julia Stone) and features songsmith Leroy Lee on Banjo & Harmonica. It is available for free download from

  1. Hey Julia, Emma was picked to sing at the Ganmain concert on Saturday night - thanks for the post because I didn't know about it otherwise!!

  2. Hi Julia, Fanny did it again this year!! Fanny and her band the Thrillseekers did a Country Halls tour last weekend to help raise funds to maintain halls in small country towns. This time she came to my hometown of Marrar where we raised a lot of money to go towards upgrading the Hall kitchen. Fanny and the Thrillseekers also hosted a music workshop for school children where they learned about playing in a band, the many instruments the band plays, and also songwriting. She is a wonderful rural girl who loves to get back to her roots!! My Emma was chosen again to open the concert! Thanks, Donna
