Tracy McNeil Locks in Regional Shows

From one extreme to the other, 2015 was a rollercoaster ride for Tracy McNeil.

The highs were many: a solo tour throughout Canada, performing at Nashville’s Americana Music Festival and supporting Dawes in Melbourne. The low was devastating, with the passing of her father, Wayne “Mac” McNeil. Mac was a travelling country­ rock musician in the 1970s, and it was he who sparked Tracy’s musical fire.

Music, as we know, can be a great healer, and Tracy found comfort through songwriting. This brings us to her forthcoming album with The GoodLife, Thieves (July 1).

Tanswell’s Commercial Hotel, Beechworth – July 22; Major Tom’s, Kyneton – July 23; and Old Hepburn Hotel, Hepburn Springs – July 31.
