Daniel Champagne (NSW) - SOLD OUT

The young Australian born and Nashville based virtuoso recently described as ‘the finest guitar player of his generation’ brings his world tour back home! 

The story goes that Daniel Champagne first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-yea-old following in the footsteps of a music father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.

The following years have seen him release four studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, AniDiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela. 

Daniel is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for dropping jaws, making crowds buzz and breaking guitars wherever he goes

Massey Ferguson + Jen Lush Band

Massey Ferguson’s music ranges from quiet folk/country ballads reminiscent of Ryan Adams’ Jacksonville City Nights, to barhouse rockers in the spirit of Neil Young with Crazy Horse. 
 
Massey Ferguson’s style could be considered alt-country however, their music is perhaps better described as genre-spanning traditional American music. 
 
Massey Ferguson features Michael Boundy (Seven Stories, Sun Theory), Greg Blanch (Amber Joy Paulton, Matt Ward), Trine Kallevig (Chorus of Angels),  Sam Carpenter ( Snap to Zero, Gorilla Jones), Anthony Scott (Fruit, Sun Theory) and singer song-writer Rich Coldwell (Linus, Sun Theory, COW),                                    
 
Jen Lush and her band of wunderkinds mix stark modern folk and heart spinning melodies with evocative soundscapes and soaring experimental guitars. Think perhaps Eva Cassidy meets Radiohead and they have a quirky little singalong. Currently recording new album due for release in early 2021.

Maddy Diamond Album Launch + Jonny Lee

Born in Canberra, Maddy Diamond has spent her last 8 years successfully combining atmosphere, smart lyrics and fish. While living and travelling throughout Australia and overseas, Maddy’s Marine Biology (Hon.) study has given her some amusing anecdotes, a unique accent, and a musical style to match. It comes as no surprise that marine imagery and themes are at the forefront of her song writing as well as her instrumental works for piano or string quartets. 

 Live, Maddy has an elegant but ballsy charisma as she moves fluidly between resonator and classical guitar, and piano, with fishy tales in between. Most of them inform her songs. Most of them true. 2016 saw her living on a Canadian marine research base so remote that she survived by rowing across the inlet to procure vital staples. Like beer. Frequently.

 To date, Maddy’s songs have earned her a raft of awards in the South Australian Festival of Original Music (2012-2018). She releases her Australian debut album on February 12th at The Wheatsheaf.  “East of the Morning, West of the Dusk” available online February 12th.

Jonny Lee is a teller of story in song, he plays his own intimate and passionate style of Indie Folk music that will both take you on a journey and hit you in the feels. A mix of the rawness and wonder of Africa, the broadness of big global cities, and a good measure of the intimacy of Adelaide.

Although Australian / Adelaide based- Jonny was born in South Africa and grew up in the city of Durban, followed by travel, study and playing music in Los Angeles, Australia, New Zealand, London and Europe… He settled in Australia in early 2005. Jonny has worked on a number of collaborative music projects singing, playing and co-producing.

His long overdue debut EP- ‘Hope Comes Towards You’ is soon to be released in 2021.

The show is a tasty baguette, split lengthways and spread with humour, filled with jazz and pop tunes sourced from the corners of the French world and topped with emotions for that extra crunch. Bon, non? Join us for a feast.

Jacques is Bacque

Our romantically hapless character Jacques continues his journey..... 
Having mastered the art of finding love but learning nothing about keeping it on his round the French world trip at the 2020 SOLD OUT Fringe, he sets off again with hope in his heart and a suitcase of new, but classic, French songs. A true optimist, our Jacques.
The show is a tasty baguette, split lengthways and spread with humour, filled with jazz and pop tunes sourced from the corners of the French world and topped with emotions for that extra crunch. Bon, non? Join us for a feast.

Adam Page - For Kids... and their Adults

After a sell out 2020 Fringe, Adam Page returns with his kids show that's just as good for their adults - but mostly for the kids (but also for their adults!). Prepare to say things like "OOOO" and "AAHHH" as Page wrangles a multitude of sounds both silly and sillier through his space age looping pedals and effects. 

★★★★ "Adam Page, who is sometimes compared to a kid lost in a musical lolly jar himself, was very much at home introducing his instruments, pedals and toys to a younger audience... Adam usually has great audience interaction, but here with an audience of children up the front, he extended even this. Almost every track having some input" - The Clothesline, 2020 Adelaide Fringe.
