Tickets to see Australian singer/songwriter Kate Ceberano perform for the 2022 Childers Festival will go live on Wednesday, with the musician heading to the region as part of her Sweet Inspiration tour.

The heritage-listed Paragon Theatre will host the ‘Pash' singer for an intimate, one-night-only event on Friday 29 July.

It's the first time the ARIA-winner will be performing in the region after many previous re-scheduling attempts due to Covid 19.

“After many false starts we are finally getting there!” she said.

“We have been meaning to come on and off for a while now and I am so excited that it is happening.

“I am really stoked to be bringing my full band with me too.”

Kate said the audience could expect a full-blown show at The Paragon, with her Sweet Inspiration album front and centre of her performance.

She said it was a special album that she was able to create during the chaos and uncertainty the pandemic.

“Sweet Inspiration is a record I did during Covid,” Kate said.

“It was a such an incredible thing, to feel like I could do something when so many of us had to stop performing.

“I got my band together in three days in which we performed the whole album live, it was my own version of therapy.”

Sweet Inspiration is the 28th album in Kate Ceberano's 40-year music career.

In the mid-80s she came blazing onto the Australian music scene as the front person for pop funk band I’m Talking and went on to notch up five consecutive hit singles and a Platinum album debut.

Now, she is continuing her passion for music and paying homage to those who have inspired her in her new album, which features special renditions of songs from John Lennon, Dolly Parton, Carole King and more.

Kate said she was excited to finally be able to share her new music with local audiences in Childers.

“I have never been to Childers before so it is really exciting,” she said.

“I have heard the Paragon is such a beautiful building, so romantic- it is going to be great.”

A Night at the Paragon with Kate Ceberano will be held on Friday 29 July at 6pm.

Tickets cost $60 for general admission and $80 for Dress Circle which includes balcony seats, private bar access and finger food.
