Musical talent runs through the veins of the Cassar-Daleys

Troy Cassar-Daley, a Gumbaynggirr/Bundjalung man is a country music icon. As one of Australia’s most decorated musicians, Troy’s accolades include 5 ARIA Awards, 40 Golden Guitars and 9 Deadly Awards. For over three decades, Troy has graced audiences worldwide with his profound musicianship and love for storytelling. Not stopping anytime soon, Troy’s new album Between The Fires is coming in May and he has announced an Australian tour.

Sharing the stage with Troy is his daughter Jem Cassar-Daley, a proud Gumbaynggirr/Bundjalung woman and rising star in the contemporary indie-pop scene. With a world-class sound and captivating performances, Jem has earned her own place in the music industry. Recently named the 2022 QMA Indigenous Artist of the Year, Jem's songwriting craft is as impressive as her mesmerising stage presence. Jem has just released new single “Space Between” and is supporting Kita Alexander on her album tour this April. 

Expect an engaging evening filled with intimate conversations, live performance and a celebration of First Nations artistry and talent. This is your chance to witness the magic of Troy and Jem's musical brilliance up close.
