LOVE & LAND TOUR 2018 When: Satur­day 8-11pm

Where: Mount Pleas­ant Tav­ern

De­tails: Cel­e­brated Aussie artists Sara Storer and The Sunny Cow­girls have much in com­mon. Above all it is their love of Aus­tralia and the many char­ac­ters who in­habit it that has been the in­spi­ra­tion for many of the songs they have writ­ten and recorded. Al­though Sara, Ce­leste and So­phie have col­lab­o­rated in the past, they have never toured to­gether, some­thing that will be rec­ti­fied when they hit the road for the Love & Land Tour and which will see them ap­pear­ing in cities and towns across Australian in 2018.
