Congratulations! Kasey and Shane
Shane, Kasey and brother Talon finally welcomed their newest member of the family at
10:30am on the 17th July, 2007. A whopping 9 pound 10 ounce baby boy called Arlo
Ray Nicholson... 10 days late, nine hours of labour and then an emergency caesar because
of his size. All is good with the whole family... Mum and Dad are proud as punch, Tal has the biggest grin ever
and has already taught him his secret brother handshake.

Tamworth, Tuesday 27 March 2007: The 2007 Tamworth
Country Music Festival presented by Telstra has just received a unique
promotion; it is the entire storyboard for Kasey Chamber’s new video clip for
her latest single, Sign on the Door.
A showcase of the internationally recognised Festival, the film clip covers the
day of Kasey’s Live and Free Concert in the Park which was held on Friday 26
January 2007. Featuring a pregnant Kasey and her family (including husband Shane
Nicholson, son Talan and dad Bill), as well as extensive footage from the day’s
rehearsal and evening concert, the clip highlights the general vibe and exciting
time to be had by everyone on their trip into the heartland of Australian
“Kasey’s continued support of the Tamworth Festival and is appreciated by
everyone involved, especially the local community that she continues to interact
with each year at the January Festival…we extend our sincere thanks to her,”
said Ms Rebel Thomson, General Manager, Tourism Tamworth.
Over the past six years, Kasey has put on a live and free gig in the park for
visitors to the Tamworth Country Music Festival and in 2007, teamed up with
Australian songstress, Missy Higgins for the two hour show. The concert had in
excess of 20,000 fans take over Tamworth’s Bicentennial Park to support Kasey
and her selected local charity, the Tamworth Salvation Army Drought Relief.
“The free concert in the park by Kasey on the final Friday of the Festival is
always a crowd highlight and is a great prelude the Saturday’s events which
include the Cavalcade and the Country Music Awards,” said Ms Thomson. “Kasey’s
new video is a great addition to the showcase of Festival fun and exciting
atmosphere that has become part of Tamworth’s culture.”
Kasey herself has acknowledged the Festival and visitors to her concert on her
www.kaseychambers.com , which had the following thank you note
listed; “We just wanted to thank everyone for once again making the Live & Free
in the Park gig as wonderful as ever. Thanks for everyone's cooperation in the
filming of the show. We've made the video to 'Sign On The Door' and are thrilled
with how it turned out. It really captures the vibe of the whole day. Keep an
eye out and you may catch it on Rage or Video Hits or Music Max or CMT.”
“Kasey first started out in the family band busking on Peel Street and has now
become an internationally recognised, cross-genre artist that has stayed true to
her Tamworth roots – she is a true ambassador for Tamworth and the talent that
the Festival continues to draw each year,” Ms Thomson added.

After five tremendously successful years 'kasey chambers live free & in
the park' has now firmly established itself as one of the premier and integral
events at the annual Tamworth Country Music Festival. And so on Australia Day
Friday January 26th 2007 at Tamworth's Bicentennial Park, 'live free & in the
park' will be back for a sixth year.
And joining Kasey this year as her very special guest will be Missy Higgins.
“I’m looking forward to Tamworth again, as always...but a little extra excited
this year because not only are we doing my favourite show in the park for our
6th year - but I’m sharing the gig with Missy Higgins,” Kasey said. “We shared
the stage at Wave Aid a couple of years ago and I’d hoped to get the chance to
do that again sometime. So looking forward to seeing you all there and hope you
enjoy it as much as we do every year.”
Missy Higgins, who is currently in the United States working on her new album

Fire Brigade, Tamworth Salvation Army Drought Relief Fund, Tamworth Youth Care
Organisation for the Prevention of Youth Suicide, Tamworth Base Hospital Nioka
Ward (Palliative Care Unit) & Hope cottage have all received funds. In 2007, in
a slight break from tradition and with regional Australia in the grip of the one
of the longest droughts in history, the buckets will again be passed around for
Tamworth Salvation Army Drought Relief and we ask that fans dig deep and donate
a Gold Coin per person in attendance.
“Your donations to the Salvation Army's Drought Relief Appeal will help us meet
the needs of farmers in the Tamworth region,” Captain Mark Everitt of the
Tamworth Corps of the Salvation Army said. “These funds will not only assist
with the everyday items of living, but it will enable the Salvation Army to
support people on the land with the crippling costs of running their
