Irish singer-songwriter, Wallis Bird’s first ever Adelaide show, on the last Wednesday night of the Adelaide Fringe, proved to be a most odd and, in unexpected ways, a most memorable performance.
The Late Bloomers’ Adelaide Fringe show, Scotland! is impressionistic, surrealistic, non-linear and told mostly in mime and sound effects, yet by the end of it you will be glad you made the journey.
Day one of WOMADelaide 2019 was filled with energy, joy and musical diversity and has set the bar high for the days to come!
Englishman, Dan Clews’ The James Taylor Story, is an Adelaide Fringe show that will please all acoustic music fans and deserves a full house every night.
Stephen Buchanan is a fine comedy craftsman and, should he choose to continue to ply his trade, there seems no doubt that he will be playing in much larger venues at future festivals. His Fringe show – Purpleberry – is a lot of fun.
Orbital were exciting, uplifting and mesmeric at the RCC on Sunday night – and seemed genuinely excited to be playing to such an appreciative RCC crowd, but Severed Heads were not quite as inspired on the night.

Pussy Riot delivered a frenzied, and very noisy, multi-modal history lesson to a large and curious crowd in The Attic at the RCC on Wednesday night.
Prince fans will certainly enjoy Michael Wheatley’s new show, Forever In My Life, as will those who admire a well structured musical performance delivered with love and humility.
