Laura Jean and band Wednesdays in July at The Yarra

LJ_YARRA_POSTER

 

Come and see us warm up for the launch of my self titled new album which is out on Chapter Music August 22. We’ll be at The Yarra Hotel on the last 4 Wednesdays in July. It’s FREE :-)

I have a new band made up of some of my favourite musicians. Evelyn Morris, the genius behind Pikelet. Raquel Solier, drum warrior princess that has played with Jens Lekman, Geoff O’Connor, and of course has her own project as Fatti Frances. Biddy Connor, my musical soulmate and hero otherwise known as Sailor Days.

July the 9th with Lucy Roleff
the 16th with Ela Stiles
the 23rd with Susanna Scurry
and the 30th with Emma Russack.

The performers I asked to support us are exceptional and I am surprised they all said yes. What an honour.

Dinner at Yarra Hotel Abbotsford is delicious. Support on at 8:00, us on at 9:00. COME!!!!!!! :-)
