Brillig says
The Award-winning “Speakeasy Sessions” return!

After a sold-out and acclaimed Fringe Fest season, where the show picked up a Weekly Award for Best Music Show, Brillig reprise their popular collection of newly written songs and a few classics.

Once again the Grace Emily will be transformed into Brillig’s own “Speakeasy” club, a perfect setting to chase away the winter blues.

The one-night-only show will be an official part of newly announced Adelaide festival: “Umbrella – Winter City Sounds”, with tickets and full program details on sale in June.

Blending enchanting Americana with Weimar-era cabaret Brillig perform their show with acoustic and electric guitars, electric and fretless bass, accordion, ukulele, harmonica and the featured lead vocals of Elizabeth Reid & Matt Swayne.

With sly humour, off the cuff banter and sincerity the Brillig trio deliver crafted songs with a sense of occasion and purpose.

Cautionary tales, drinking odes, and a tip of the hat to the 1920s – both USA’s prohibition & Germany’s decadance of this time - fill Brillig’s song list.

These songs themselves filled with sinners, saints, dancers, drinkers and those who are looking only for redemption.

Prohibition never tasted so good!
