Tonight, Star Court Theatre, Lismore

Sarah Blasko is back in Australia to perform three shows only, one of them in Lismore. How lucky are we!

Australian born, her family returned from French-speaking Reunion, where both her parents were Christian missionaries. While Blasko found her voice in a Pentecostal setting (later to become Hillsong) by the end of school she left the church and started to make her own way in the music business, forming a jazz blues group with her older sister.

In 2002 Blasko went solo and released her debut EP. It’s been a strong build for Blasko, and after releasing her platinum-accredited and highly acclaimed third album As Day Follows Night in 2009, Sarah embarked upon tireless international touring throughout 2010.

Seeker Lover Keeper kept Sarah busy for much of the following year. The much-loved collaboration with her friends Holly Throsby and Sally Seltmann culminated in the national Heavenly Sounds tour of churches and cathedrals in December.

This year, Sarah has been recording in Stockholm, Sweden, and Sofia, Bulgaria with the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra. The new album is due for release later this year. Sarah Blasko will perform at the opening of the Cairns Festival as well as returning to one of her favourite regional venues, Lismore’s Star Court Theatre.

Friday at Star Court Theatre, Lismore 7.30pm. $55 presale tix, $60 at the door.

Government fails to support dying with dignity in Northern Rivers

Approaching the subject of dying is always tricky, often awkward, and never easy. But when you are faced with caring for someone at the end of their life, it helps if you can find support from people who have already navigated the path.
