- FRINGE SHOW -
Superb UK classical guitarist !
J
onathan Prag

‘For the first time ever, Jonathan Prag arrives on the Adelaide Fringe, ready to share his wholehearted guitar playing and sheer love of music. Come and enjoy the beauty and emotional power of the solo guitar. This is guitar playing at its best whether he is playing Bach’s haunting Cello suite No.1; or the melodic, folk-based sweetness of Tryptico by the great Venezuelan composer Antonio Lauro. The popular and exquisite Gnossienne by Eric Satie, (which was featured in the film ‘Chocolat’) sets off the soulfully bluesy Prelude by George Gerswhin. Some of the music has a distinctly exotic and lively vibe. Lindsay-Clark’s Salsa Roja is the third movement of a Suite entitled Fiesta Americana, and is dedicated to world famous Paraguayan guitarist, Berta Rojas. America,by Matthew Sear, is full of familiar sounds and rythms – the jangle of New York, the plangent Blues of the Deep South, Keystone Cops, Mexico and even traffic jams with horns beeping. Jonathan's performance overflows with beautiful lively music and surprising changes of pace. He continues to explore classical versions of music from folk roots and this year he has chosen to play Niel Gow’s Shadow by guitarist Neil Smith, a medley of gorgeous traditional Scottish tunes. With his friendly style of presentation and obvious love of the guitar this show is bound to leave you feeling happy and uplifted.

- FRINGE SHOW -
John Legg

Pithy and topical musical comedy with a full bladder from the fringes of Edinburgh.
In this intimate and quirky encounter Wee Leggie sings with his double bass about issues that affect us all but are rarely discussed.
With songs about euthanasia (a designer death for boomers with tumours), incontinence, amputee lust, kombis and his grim senile solution for an ageing Australia, John likes to tackle the big issues.
Tried bushwalking naked? Come on, let it all hang out, sing along and grow old disgracefully. See you in the bushes.
Warning: show contains confronting and wilful verbal imagery, sexual incompetence and cat-loathing content.
John: Playwright, writer, lyricist, singer and corporate performer, John’s life has taken many turns as he has travelled from Joppa (Edinburgh) to Adelaide.
Ian: Ian Lehmann writes music to John's words (a challenge). He is neither incontinent nor senile (yet). He is however a grey nomad whose journeys have taken him through the study of classical music, rock and roll and concept projects.
Footnote: The generation that brought you global warming also spends your inheritance. Suck it up!
Review: “Sorry I missed him,” Spike Milligan (deceased).

Jeff Witt
Songs of
Leonard Cohen

Solo performance of songs by Leonard Cohen with nylon string and steel string guitars and digital keyboard. A focus on the poetic aspect of songwriting by Leonard Cohen and other significant songwriters.

Jeff Witt has been performing Leonard Cohen Songs since the 1970's. "My Secret Life" is a personal interpretation of Cohen's songs, from an artist who has studied Cohen's writing for several decades. This performance includes several songs from 'Ten New Songs' performed with a Korg keyboard. Many songs from Cohen's first few albums are performed with nylon and steel string guitars. Some songs that were traditionally played with guitar have been re-interpreted for keyboard. Jeff's over-riding interest as a solo performer is to select songs that have a poetic element to the lyrics, as well as an appealing melody. He then spends a great deal of time in rehearsal, with a view to getting inside the song and thus making the performance a personal expression of his own life experience. The evening does include some songs that are written by other contemporary, poetic song writers.

MARISA QUIGLEY

Blues/Roots Country/Folk Singer/Songwriter


With 12 years fronting award winning rhythm ‘n’ blues band Chubby Rae & the Elevators, Melbourne based singer/songwriter Marisa Quigley has developed some serious vocal chops. Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2007 Australian Blues Music Awards and semi-finalist in the 2012 International Songwriting Competition, she is unquestionably a self-made songstress and a voice to be reckoned with.

Engaging you from her ‘home on the stage’ you can’t help be captivated by Marisa's dynamic presence, hauntingly beautiful vocals and earthy humour. She will in one breath have you in stitches with her irreverent wit and in the next, move you to tears with her breathtaking lyrical stories. Her songs are a testament to a life well lived. Some tell the dark and desperate tales of murderers, gypsies and slaves, others are full of purpose and meaning while many are just a darn tootin’ barrel o’ fun.

Eleanor McEvoy

Eleanor McEvoy is one of Ireland’s most accomplished female singer/songwriters. Respected as a fine multi-instrumentalist in both traditional and contemporary music, she is best known for writing “Only A Woman’s Heart”, the title track of an anthology album that’s gone on to be the best selling recording in Irish History. Eleanor’s strong Irish accent adds to her renditions of her quirky, perceptive songs, ranging from love ballads and story-telling to left-of-centre takes on the vagaries of life. Eleanor is touring Australia to promote her new album, Stuff!

“Eleanor McEvoy appears to have done it all. Since first becoming a household name in Ireland over two decades ago, the Wexford-based, Dublin- born singer has journeyed from classical to folk, detouring via rock and pop. She’s equally comfortable as a jazz chanteuse, an acoustic troubadour and a singer-songwriter, whether solo or fronting a band. If Crowded House was fronted by a female, they’d probably sound something like this…” Colm O’Hare – Hot Press, March 5th 2013

Ange Takats

Former foreign correspondent turned folk singer Ange Takats has a voice that is able to coat with sugar, crush with sadness and cut through to the soul of a song. Named ‘Folk/ Singer Songwriter of the year’ at the 2013 Queensland Music Awards, her second album 'Arva' blends 60s folk with 30s jazz. Strangely enough, Ange’s career began in Bangkok where she worked as a journalist by day and folk singer by night. Her worldly adventures and gift for storytelling have allowed the Sunshine Coast based artist to develop a unique performance style - weaving light-hearted travel tales between darkly emotive songs.
