About this event

Sizzling under the stars on a sultry Summer's evening, Simone Craddock unleashes her smash hit blues show from London's West End into the State Theatre Centre of WA Courtyard!

Simone & her star-studded band led by ferocious pianist Adrian Galante, resurrect the legends of the blues with the songs and stories of Bessie Smith, Robert Johnson, Amy Winehouse, Sammy Davis Jnr and more. From the spirituals of the Deep South, to Rock n' Roll, Country & blues-feel standards, no-one can resist the rhythmic lure & laughs of the Blues!

Simone Craddock & Adrian Galante are the winners of the 2020 FRINGE WORLD Music & Musicals Award. Tonight they are augmented by powerhouses Nick Abbey on double bass & Daniel Susnjar on drums, for a toe-tapping, hip-swaying, whiskey-toting Birth of the Blues!

Presented by:
Simone Craddock

Simone’s dual career in music and theatre has taken her across Asia, Europe and The States. The WA born Singer & Actress has been based in London for the last 20 years, performing in Europe’s most prestigious venues, including Ronnie Scotts, Houses of Parliament and Australia House. She has a presence born of leading roles on the West End stage & International tours of Annie, Jesus Christ Superstar, Dirty Dancing and Hello Dolly!

Having already played the Edinburgh Fringe & London Jazz Festival, Simone returned home last year, winning the 2020 Music & Musicals Award for her FRINGE WORLD debut, Nina, Love Simone, which she is reprising this year. Simone is also presenting her world premiere of Ella & Louis, collaborating with 2019 Music & Musicals Award winners, Adam Hall & Adrian Galante.
