Saturday 4 March
Since Karma County’s hit song ‘Postcard’ announced the arrival of the Sydney trio in 1997, their music has ranged across an eclectic terrain. Tonight they bring those lush, melodious, thoughtful and emotive sounds back to the stage.
Karma County’s Brendan Gallagher said, "We’re tickled pink to be asked to play Port Fairy Folk Festival in 2017 and therefore have an excuse to play our home town Sydney and reacquaint ourselves with the songs and our fans. Knocking together a set list will be an interesting exercise."
Twenty years on from their beginnings playing iconic Sydney pubs like the Sando and the Annandale, Karma County are still comprised of original members singer/guitarist Brendan Gallagher, bassist Michael Galeazzi and drummer Stuart Eadie.
Together they have released five studio albums and toured the world, all the while keeping their artistic independence and claiming success with sold out shows and an ARIA Award for Best Adult Contemporary Album in 2000 for ‘Into The Land of Promise’ – their third album featuring the hits ‘Secret Country’ and ‘The Men Who Ran Away From The Circus’.
The success of the album saw Karma County tour Australia as well as Europe, the UK and North America, with tour highlights including performances at WOMAD festivals in Hanover, Reading and Seattle, opening the Australian Film Festival in Rome and guesting with Jimmy Little at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London.
Following ‘Into The Land of Promise’, Karma County went on to release their fourth album ‘Happy Birthday Dear Customer’ and fifth album ‘Pacifico’ featuring ‘Dexter & Sinistra’ – a song and video with Australian acting icon Bryan Brown.
In 2008, a special two disc retrospective ‘Headland’ was released and was accompanied by a brief east coast Australian tour. The album featured two new tracks, re-mixed and re-mastered tracks from their five studio albums, live tracks and some rarities.
Rediscover Karma County in this rare regrouping as they perform a cross section of songs from their 5 timeless albums on March 4 at Venue 505.
