How Fanny Lumdsen Is Approaching The Potency of The Fleetwood Mac Legacy Show

Australian country star Fanny Lumsden wasn’t even born when Fleetwood Mac’s masterpiece ‘Rumours’ was released by in August she will go on tour with the challenge of channelling the potency of the Fleetwood Mac lyrics.

Fanny will star alongside Kav Temperely of Eskimo Joe, Charlie Collins and Karen Lee-Andrews for ‘Yesterday’s Gone – The Fleetwood Mac Legacy’.

Fanny tells, “I’ve never seen them live. I obviously know the songs. They are such iconic songwriters and the band and their stories. The overall story I know, how the couple came together and then it all blew up and they came out with the ‘Rumours’ album. I know the basics”.

Watch the Noise11 Fanny Lumsden interview:

Fanny discovered the music of Fleetwood Mac through The Chicks and her husband Dan, who is also in her band, came into Mac via The Smashing Pumpkins. “For me I discovered ‘Landside’ through The Chicks, formerly The Dixie Chicks. They covered it and I loved them growing up. My husband, who is into heavier music, discovered the song through The Smashing Pumpkins. I think that speaks so much about their songwriting that it can bring these totally different genres and introduce you both into one band. It says a lot about that band and says a lot about their songs. I think that’s pretty cool”.

Fanny will perform the 2024 ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ shows in place of Lisa Mitchell you who in the 2023 line-up. “I get to come in and benefit from the decisions that have already been made so I do get to do ‘Landslide’ as well,” she says.

What was so incredible about Fleetwood Mac ‘Rumours’ was that the two relationships in the band, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham and John and Christine McVie, where both splitting as couple and the lyrics reflect the anger. Fanny says, “Its kind of powerful. Thinking about where that energy came from and when they were sitting down and when those songs were formed. Sometimes they were in the room staring at each other with all of those feelings inside and then coming out with a song like that. There is so much power in it and I am excited to bring that to life”.

Fanny can only hope Art never imitates Life for her. “My husband is in my band, and my brother is too. I just can’t imagine breaking up and doing what they did. I’m not sure I could do it”.
