Make your own kind of Music
Sun 26 Feb @ 4:00 pm
Drop into the relaxed vibes of California in the late 1960s where for a young woman “to do your thing’s the hardest thing to do.” Hear old ideas made new as you time travel back with Charlee Watt to the LA music scene and uncover the challenges and the changing opportunities for some of the unconventional women who were determined to make their own kind of music and sing their own special songs. Commune with Beatnik poetry, hit song and stories within the experimental communities of magical hippy enclaves to find out – was it really all peace, love and happiness? Following a sell-out premiere season in 2022, Adelaide Fringe weekly award winner Charlee Watt, still fresh from winning Adelaide Cabaret Festival’s coveted Class of Cabaret scholarship, will be your guide to “feeling groovy”.
Feel free to dress in your hippie best and commune on the grass half an hour before the show to smell the incense, enjoy a glass, have a conversation and listen to the blasts from the past. Dancing is welcome and recommended by health professionals.
