160 Flinders St, Adelaide, 5000
Adelaide The Songs is a special presentation of new songs inspired by our city. This acclaimed concert/cabaret was one of the ‘surprise’ hit music shows of the 2016 Adelaide Fringe Festival, receiving 4.5 stars and glowing reviews. It has since then played to sold out shows within the History Festival and the Umbrella Winter Music Festival as well as featuring at the Lord Mayors Gala Concert.
This unique show was devised way back in 2014 to create some new songs about Adelaide’s CBD, its history, identity, stories and characters. Every city deserves to be sung about. Seven local songwriters came together with renowned historian Patricia Sumerling and uncovered some of the darker and lighter aspects of our hometown.
Ballads, Blues, Jazz and Cabaret songs…Its all about Adelaide
