Lightwood Bottom Blues Night
featuring Kate Meehan, Queen of Tasmanian Blues, with friends
playing hot Chicago Blues at The Kermandie Hotel on Saturday 21 August 2021
Kate Meehan is a veteran of the Hobart Music scene of 38 years.
She began as an apprentice blues singer in 1988 at the infamous Round Midnight niteclub in Salamanca place and fronted The Fabulous Blue Cats for many years on.
Kate made her debut album Let the Good Times Roll in 1999 at the ABC studios in Hobart and in 2000 and 2002 made 2 more albums that would move her career to the mainland Australia to play almost every major festival in the following 16 years and win her 3 of the highest in blues achievement awards possible, The "CHAIN" Awards, not a bad turn of events for a born and bred Glenorchy girl from beyond the flanelette curtain (and proud of it).
Kate won 3 years running, runner up in the nationwide songwriting MusicOz awards in the blues category and in 2007 a VicTas award for Female Vocalist of the year.
Performing is a rare event these days for Kate but she still has the passion of the blues inside that likes to escape and belt it all out in her own unique style.
