Born in Adelaide, South Australia, four-time Australian Mandolin Champion and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Kym Warner began his musical journey touring the outback with The Brian Young Show in 1993. In 1995 Kym spent two semesters at South Plains College in Levelland, TX studying and performing American roots music. He spent the next 5 years touring Australia with Kasey Chambers, Lee Kernaghan, Beccy Cole, Gina Jeffreys, Darren Coggin, Adam Harvey and Tania Kernaghan before moving to the U.S in 2001. 

A founding member of the progressive acoustic band The Greencards, Kym toured the US, Europe and Australia extensively for thirteen years, recorded six studio albums and received accolades such as Three GRAMMY nominations, a #1 Billboard Bluegrass Album, an Americana Award for 'Best New Artist' and a 31 date national tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson.

 In 2015, Kym released his debut solo album ‘Everything That Brought Me Here’, a full-instrumental album all composed and recorded by Kym with musical contributions by Tommy Emmanuel, Dan Dugmore, Jedd Hughes and Jeff Taylor to name a few.

Soon after he joined Robert Earl Keen as a member of his touring and studio band.

Kym composed and produced the theme music for ‘Robert Earl Keen’s’ podcast ‘Americana, The 51st State’.

 After spending the past 21 years performing and living in the U.S Kym will be relocating back to his native Australia early in 2022.

      2020 was a year like no other. Hats started well with a fabulous Sold out Fringe program only to close down in                                  March because of Covid19. Sadly we did not open again during 2020 . 

                  2018 has been & gone BUT the music lives on.
  Here are just a few snippets of what you may have seen /or missed.
