Perform with music legend
Storer to thrill Monto on regional tour
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.

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.
