Presented by Simone Craddock and State Theatre Centre of WA as part of State of Play 2021 - FRINGE WORLD Festival 2021

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 and 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 Jr. and more.

From the spirituals of the deep south to rock 'n' roll, country and blues-feel standards, no-one can resist the rhythmic lure & laughs of the blues!

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