HUNKY DORY

With Alison St Ledger 

Presented by Queensland Cabaret Festival and Metro Arts

Praised as one of the greatest albums of all time, Hunky Dory is quite simply a wondrous work of art. And this December it turns 50!

Influenced by Warhol, Dylan and The Velvet Underground with nods to Nietzsche and Aleister Crowley; and including joyous gems like ‘Fill your Heart’ and ‘Kooks’… Hunky Dory is a time capsule of Bowie at his most inspired.

Alison St Ledger – reunited with Meg Burstow on piano, Mark Angel on guitars, Robert (Dr Bob) Harley on bass and Nicki Perry on drums – performs the album in its entirety.

At a time when things feel so out of kilter, what better way to uplift the spirit…and say it’s alright… we’re ok… everything is Hunky Dory!
