Indigo FM presents its first concert featuring acclaimed singer songwriter guitarist Daniel Champagne as he makes a triumphant return to Yackandandah on Saturday 2 June at Yackandandah Public Hall.
“We are incredibly excited to be promoting Daniel Champagne’s upcoming Yackandandah concert. These days Champagne is based in Nashville Tennessee, and securing his agreement to include Yackandandah on his Snap Shot National tour was surprisingly easy as Daniel has long wanted to return to Yackandandah,” said Indigo FM President Scott Landells.
Daniel’s enthusiasm is high to do this concert. “It’s exciting to be coming back to Yackandandah for my first show in many years! I had the opportunity to play in the area from the good people at the Folk Festival back when i was just starting out – I fell in love with the place…such a cool town and wonderful people. I grew up in a regional area up in NSW myself so when I do get back to Australia, I like to tour through the major cities plus as many smaller towns as I can get to. Massive thanks to Indigo FM for helping us put Yackandandah on the list for 2018…I can’t wait to be back!” Champagne said.

Support act for the night will be local duo Forgotten Land who are Gem and Dave King.

Gem sings from the heart with emotion and Dave accompanies her with his funky rhythms on percussion, including the djembe and cajon.
