A musical tribute to the place we call home: part satire, part homage, from amusing trivia to the deeply personal. Original songs and stories from award winning songwriter Doctor D and storyteller/saxophonist Fergus Maximus and their band encompassing folk, blues, rock and pop. What better time to fall in love again with your city?
Doctor D and Fergus Maximus
Doctor D is a songwriter and blues-rock guitarist based in London and Adelaide. As a frequent visitor to Adelaide and now as a resident his songs celebrate all that is quirky and fun about South Aussie customs and culture. He is a two time winner in the SCALA annual Festival of Original Music, his 2013 winning entry ‘Gulf of St Vincent’ being a highlight of the show. Fergus Maximus is a soulful singer/storyteller/saxophonist whose melodic pop/rock songs embrace all the important things- love, loss, mistakes with wit, intelligence and fun. His debut album ‘Restless Soles’ is an anthology of short stories about characters with itchy feet- their foibles and struggles. SWT_HM_ADL is the first collaboration between these two seasoned artists.
SWT_HM_ADL is a part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2021.
