Sara Storer has become the toast of country music since collecting her record haul of seven Golden Guitars at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January.
But not even country music stardom has changed Sara — she remains as delightfully honest, witty and down to earth as ever. It's those qualities that make Sara's brand new DVD, Stories to Tell, so refreshing and appealing.
Stories to Tell offers a glimpse into the heart and life of this remarkable young woman, revealing the stories behind Sara's songs and the colourful people who've inspired them.
Viewers are invited into Sara's family home, a property between Gulargambone and Warren in western New South Wales, for a family barbecue, impromptu concert and chat about Sara's music and life.
Sara's brothers and fathers join her, in what they jokingly call the Bullagreen Mountain Breakdown Band, for a regular family singalong — and a chance to hear some of Sara's poignant, funny and extremely perceptive songs in a relaxed, laughter-filled atmosphere.
Many of Sara's most popular singles are featured, including the first song she ever wrote, which was also her first major hit — “Buffalo Bill”.
Sara talks about the man who inspired the song, Harry, and also gives a sneak preview of a song she wrote for Harry after he passed away last year — “Angel”. The song is performed with brother Greg on banjo, and has a faintly bluegrass feel.
Other hit singles featured on the DVD include Katherine, A Cowboy's Song, Tell These Hands and Back Out Back.
The title track from 'Beautiful Circle', is also included — with her father doing tractor duty in the video clip. John Williamson joins her for a duet on 'Raining on the Plains', which was responsible for several of those Golden Guitars in January.
Stories to Tell shows just why Sara's songs capture the people, places and experiences of rural Australia so perfectly — the warmth of her own family, her passion for life on the land, and her fascination with the characters of outback and rural Australia are all very evident.
