Bernard Fanning, one of Australia’s most loved musicians, will perform Leeuwin Estate’s annual family concert in Margaret River on the evening of Saturday January 24 of the Australia Day long weekend.
Bernard Fanning has had a career most musicians could only dream of. He has spent over two decades entertaining and delighting audiences across the world with his extraordinary voice and renowned songwriting. From fronting Powderfinger, to penning nine albums, travelling the globe from his backyard of Brisbane on countless sell-out tours, he has become one of Australia’s most legendary musicians and has won a poolroom’s worth of ARIA Awards along the way.
Performing at the stunning surrounds of Leeuwin Estate in Margaret River, Bernard and his band will bring to life his acclaimed ‘Tea & Sympathy’ and ‘Departures’ albums, as well as debuting in Australia some as yet unheard new tunes.
The annual Leeuwin Concerts were launched when the London Philharmonic Orchestra performed at the Estate in 1985. In 1993 Leeuwin extended the series to include family concerts featuring Australian musical talent. Previous artists who have performed at Leeuwin family concerts include John Butler, The Waifs, Pete Murray, Paul Kelly, The Whitlams, Kasey Chambers, Kate Ceberano, Tex Perkins, Yothu Yindi and Alex Loyd. They are traditionally held on the Australia Day long weekend.
