One of Australia’s most commanding live performers, Sarah Blasko will play this year’s festival as the only Tasmanian date of her ‘The Soloist’ national tour. Performing without a band for the first time in her storied career, she will lay bare her extraordinary songwriting and iconic voice, taking the stage solo at the Theatre Royal.
Sarah writes songs that strike with rare immediacy, clarity and purpose. From her game-changing debut ‘The Overture & The Underscore’ in 2004 through to 2015’s stunning synth-laden paean to love ‘Eternal Return’, the multi-platinum selling three-time ARIA Award winner has continually proven herself an irrepressible artistic force.
‘Whenever I listen to Sarah Blasko’s albums I feel like I’m navigating a vast ocean.’ – Dave Faulkner, The Saturday Paper
