Per­form with mu­sic leg­end

Storer to thrill Monto on re­gional tour

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - Jack Lawrie jack.lawrie@cnbtimes.com.au

MU­SI­CALLY minded Monto res­i­dents will get a chance to ac­com­pany a mu­sic leg­end.

Each year, Leg­end & the Lo­cals presents an Aus­tralian mu­sic su­per­star across re­gional Queens­land, along with a sup­port act from lo­cal per­form­ers.

This year, the head­lin­ing act is coun­try mu­sic sen­sa­tion Sara Storer.

Ms Storer won the Aria for Coun­try Al­bum of the Year in Novem­ber, and Fe­male Artist of the Year at Tam­worth Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val awards, where she has won 21 Golden Gui­tars.

The tour, which will start at Yep­poon Vil­lage Fes­ti­val on Au­gust 12, will per­form in Monto on Oc­to­ber 14.

Kep­pel Coast Arts event co-or­di­na­tor Kate Sch­lick said or­gan­is­ers had wanted to in­clude the town in the event be­fore, but had a last-minute can­cel­la­tion the pre­vi­ous year.

“Hav­ing this sort of event to work to­wards does amaz­ing things for town morale,” Mrs Sch­lick said.

Kep­pel Coast Arts is work­ing with Monto Magic Tourism to co-or­di­nate the event and re­cruit lo­cal tal­ent.

This sort of event ... does amaz­ing things for town morale. — Kate Sch­lick

In ad­di­tion to a town-sourced band to ac­com­pany Ms Storer, or­gan­is­ers are also look­ing to find acts to warm up the crowd, and two mu­si­cal “wild cards” from res­i­dents.

Per­form­ers should con­tact Monto Magic or visit leg­en­dandth­e­lo­cals.com.au.
