Laughton Kora Joins Fly My Pretties Lineup

Fly My Pretties are proud to announce Laughton from Kora will be joining the cast as a special guest for both final Encore Shows this weekend.

The vocal powerhouse behind seminal local band Kora, Laughton will take part in the A Story songs and present some brand new collaborative material with Fly My Pretties in the extended jam-session second half.

Laughton Kora joins returning 2006 Fly My Pretties member Adi Dick as one of the special guests who will celebrate the close of A Story.

Mitchell, Lisa Tomlins (Rhombus), Mara T.K.
