Daniel Champagne (Australia) LIVE at the Marble Arts Centre – Sunday May 19, 2024 at 7pm

The Tweed & Area Arts Council is thrilled to once again host Daniel Champagne at the Marble Arts Centre. His show at the MAC in October 2022 sold out months in advance and was an intimate, one-of-a-kind performance that left the audience in amazement! He has been described as “the finest guitar player of this generation”, “a leading light in acoustic music” and “a performer that must be seen to be believed”. From March to June 2024, he will be touring Canada, from Vancouver Island in the West out to Newfoundland in the east and 56 towns in between – including Tweed!

One reviewer recently wrote – “Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical” (
The story goes that the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road.

The following 15 years have seen him release 7 studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun, and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.
