Darwin darling Leah Flanagan is coming home to launch her highly-anticipated album SAUDADES!
Saudades - it almost sounds like a sigh. An audible release of emotion, tinged with regret and a melancholy kind of pleasure. This wonderfully untranslatable word, made famous in song by Cesária Évora, conjures a tangle of feelings that only the Portuguese, in their wisdom of the heart's joys and sorrows, could name with just one word. It is the perfect title for this elegant collection of heartfelt songs by rising Australian songwriter, singer and sometime saltwater ukulele whisperer, Leah Flanagan. Leah dives in deep with Saudades, a suite of songs that capture a full repertoire of the emotions that we carry into our relationships, romantic and otherwise. ALL of the feels...
Leah will be joined by the incredible Adam Pringle on guitars for this special album launch performance.
Supported by 2015 NT Song of the Year winner Broadwing.
Come down to the Rails for a night of stunning music, nostalgia and emotion. And join in the homecoming celebration for one of Darwin's much loved artists.
Darwin Railway Club Saturday November 19 @ 7pm. Tickets $20 online and $25 on the door.
