The Famous Spiegeltent, 19 Feb to 20 Feb
In a casual mid-afternoon slot, a relaxed audience filtered into The Spiegeltent to be seduced by the vocal honey of Ali McGregor, accompanied by Barnabas Smith on drums, Alana Doors on double bass, and Matthew Carey on keys.
In Something Old, Something New, McGregor presents a set of smooth, easily digestible jazz and blues tunes perfect for the time slot. As the title suggests she includes material old and new, covering the classics, a number of pop reinterpretations and trialing some previously unheard tracks.
This show is a simple pleasure, nothing less but nothing more. If you're looking to whittle away an afternoon in The Garden, grab a glass of wine and a seat for a cruisey hour of soothing cabaret.
If you like what you see, you can catch more of McGregor at this year's Adelaide Cabaret Festival.
