Family & Friends Tour




Continuing the age old Slim Dusty Family Tour tradition Slim’s daughter Anne Kirkpatrick, her son Jim Arneman with some of their musical friends are heading out on the road for a special series of Family & Friends concerts.

Anne Kirkpatrick …the daughter of Australian country music pioneers Slim Dusty and Joy McKean, first appeared on stage at age 10 in her parents’ own Travelling Country Family Show back in the 1960’s. She has gone on to forge her own long and successful solo career releasing 14 acclaimed albums, winning six CMAA Golden Guitars, several Mo Awards and an ARIA ‘Country Album of the Year’ Award  for her 1991 ‘Out Of The Blue’ album.  Anne was also inducted into the ‘Australasian Roll Of Renown’ in 2010.

Joining Anne on the Family & Friends stage will be Slim and Joy’s grandson Jim Arneman. Performing together and separately over the evening, they will be including special renditions of some Slim Dusty and Joy McKean classics.  Also joining Anne and Jim on stage will be Slim’s longtime record producer and TCB bandleader…the legendary Rod Coe on the double bass. 

Opening each show will be the duo ‘Indian Pacific’ which features Jim Arneman together with the talented young Victorian musician/singer Flora Smith.

These concerts will be a must-see for any Australian country music fan and a rare opportunity to see members of the First Family of Australian country music.
