Cecile McLorin Salvant – a jazz superstar in the making? Maybe. But she’s not quite at that level yet, as her perplexing Adelaide Festival performance made clear.
1970’s Irish pop craftsman, Gilbert O’Sullivan, is coming to Adelaide in March 2018 as part of his 50th Anniversary World Tour. Tickets are available now!

By engaging young people in his show, Alirio Zavarce is hoping he can show them the hope and goodness in the world around them.
