Adelaide Guitar Festival supports local musicians with The Backstage Sessions
Adelaide Guitar Festival is giving audiences a backstage pass to South Australia’s vibrant live music scene, with an online video series showcasing some of the state’s most talented guitarists.
Professionally filmed in the wings of Adelaide Festival Centre’s Festival Theatre, The Backstage Sessions will feature 15-minute sets from Adelaide Guitar Festival favourites. There will also be sets from accomplished emerging artists.
Audiences will be treated to candid performances set against the unique backdrop of memorabilia collected from previous Adelaide Festival Centre productions.
New videos will appear weekly on Adelaide Guitar Festival’s Facebook page from Friday, 17 July, until the virtual event concludes on Sunday, 9 August. Spanning rock, jazz, blues, classical and experimental genres.
Adelaide Guitar Festival Artistic Director Slava Grigoryan commented;
After the loss of this year’s festival, we’ve looked for alternative possibilities for engaging some of our incredible local artists in a series of mini-concerts which capture the intimacy and joy of these rare collaborations. This is an initiative which we hope to continue long after social-distancing restrictions are lifted and we’re seeing our audiences again ‘in the flesh’. We hope you enjoy watching these as much as we enjoyed making them!”
The line-up for The Backstage Sessions includes Chris Finnen, Cal Williams Jr & Kory Horwood; Kelly Menhennett & Band; The Tom Kneebone Trio; Mike Bevan & Alain Valodze; The Django Rowe Quintet and The Yearlings featuring Slava Grigoryan.
Audiences are invited to like and follow Adelaide Guitar Festival on Facebook to receive notification of the latest posts.
