Earl of Whimsy with Bill Bailey

After the 2016 sell-out tour, Larks in Transit, the UK's very own straggle-haired polymath, Bill Bailey returns to Australia with his new comedy and music extravaganza Earl of Whimsy.
It has Bill's trademark blend f satire and surrealism, dtories and dismantled jokes, crowd sing-alongs, weird instruments and musical showstoppers. But there's a distinctly historical feel to this show. With its tales of Britain's past and present. of ancient Viking battles, of Shakespeare's contibution to comedy, and Bill's own ancestry, this is both a mockery and a celebration of national identity.
It;s also a journey of discovery. We find out where Knock Knock jokes came from, how we got days of the week, and why Nicky Minaj rejected a puffin smaple for her latest single. There are lively audience discussions, a mass German singalong, and even some Cockney crab-dancing. Something for everyone.

Only the Fire Can Say

The acclaimed Adelaide Chamber Singers will perform the secind concert from their 2018 series entitled Only the Fira can Say, on Friday August 19. 2018 at 7.30pm in the Grainger Studio 91 Handley St. Adelaide.
Saturday August 11. 2018 at 6.30pm in Pilgrim Church Adelaide and on Sunday August 12. 2018 at 2/30pm at Ukaria Culteral Centre.
Only the fire can Say will be conducted by Christie Anderson and features music for voices, violin, cello and percussion. With works by Vasks, Vaughan Williams, Lauridsen, Esenvalds and newly commissioned music from Sydney-based composer Luke Byrne.
Christie Anderson says," Thid concert considers inheritance - of memory, people, places, objects and ideas we grow qith - that become parrt of our personal living history. It's through this inheritance thst we trvel through our own seasons in this wprld, knowing what makes us whole and connected. We choose what remains for generatios to come".
The concert title comes from a poem of the same name by South Australian poet Rachel Mead.
Peter Vask's Plainscapes is a soundscape in three vocalises for solo violin and cello and SATB singers, which explores the auditory wonder of the Latfian plains - the dominant feature of the countryside. T^hey are medifave, full of wonder.
Adelaide Chamber singers is performing two of commissioned composer Luke Byme's pieces, oneold and one new. Christie loved his existing work, Deart Sea (inspired by Lake Eyre and explorer Dharles Sturt's obsession with the imagined 'inland sea' and the transformation of the lake in flood). She asked him to write a partner work, and in his research Luke discovered that the Lake Eyre Peninsula has a rich history of shipwreks.|
The first stanza of commissioned work Where Sails Once Flew is based on the account of a ship called the Songwaar that in a dtrange coincidence sank on the same day as the Titanic, but sits upright on the flor of the ocean.
