Tower of coun­try power

On tour to pro­mote her new al­bum Si­los, Sara Storer has earned praise from the great John Wil­liamson

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE -

IT’S high praise in­deed when the in­cum­bent god­fa­ther of Aus­tralian coun­try and folk, John Wil­liamson, sends a com­pli­ment your way.

‘’Sara has a unique way of see­ing and ex­press­ing her ob­ser­va­tions of love and life in the bush. So she is a song­writer that will be re­mem­bered be­yond her life­time,” Wil­liamson penned of award-win­ning singer­song­writer Sara Storer.

Hav­ing won a Golden Gui­tar in 2014 for a duet she recorded with her long­time friend and some­time mu­si­cal col­lab­o­ra­tor, Storer re­leased a song she wrote about Wil­liamson called Ca­noe.

The ac­com­pa­ny­ing video took out the cov­eted award for Video Clip of the Year in 2015 in Tam­worth, bring­ing Storer’s Golden Gui­tar tally to 18.

Storer, 42, will be bring­ing her vast tal­ents to the stage at Rooty Hill RSL on Satur­day.

The songstress re­leased her sixth stu­dio al­bum, Si­los, in March, and Rooty Hill is part of a coun­try­wide tour to pro­mote the al­bum and cel­e­brate her love of per­form­ing.

She re­cently posted on her Face­book page: “I am so ex­cited to be play­ing my first show for a few years at the Rooty Hill RSL on Oc­to­ber 22. I hope to see you there.”

It’s an­other en­dorse­ment of Storer’s stand­ing that Si­los last week was an­nounced as a Best Coun­try Al­bum fi­nal­ist in the 2016 ARIA awards.

Storer, who was born in Vic­to­ria and spent sev­eral years in Dar­win, moved to Al­bury early last year with hus­band Dave, where she gave birth to her fourth son.

Her Si­los tour will fin­ish in Al­bury – back home – on Feb­ru­ary 11.

Storer’s show at Rooty Hil RSL starts at 8pm. She will be joined by spe­cial guest Fanny Lums­den & the Thrillseek­ers. Tick­ets are $30. De­tails: rooty­hillrsl.com.au.
