Leah Flanagan // Saudades Tour says
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 backed by her incredible band, Adam Pringle, Evan Mannell and Tim Curnick, all legends of the Sydney music scene.

Supported by Luke Daniel Peacock.
