While British singer songwriter Sandi Thom hasn’t had a top 50 hit here in Australia for the past eight years (her only top ten hit remains her 2006 No.1 hit ‘I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker’), that hasn’t stopped her from announcing live dates in Australia late next month.
The singer will arrive in the country for a date with the Mitchell Creek Rock ‘N’ Blues Festival on the Sunshine Coast on September 20 and 21 and will wrap the tour up two weeks later with an appearance at the Great Southern Blues & Rockabilly Festival in Narooma on the New South Wales South Coast.
In between those two festivals, however, there are dates in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Canberra, with further regional dates, including an appointment with Newcastle, also in the mix.
She’ll no doubt draw from her back catalogue of work, including songs from her recently released covers album entitled (somewhat surprisingly) ‘The Covers Collection’.
