Here Comes The Night – The Songbook of Van Morrison will be the first major entertainment event to be staged at the revitalised Seppeltsfield, which now boasts a new $3 million cellar door and restaurant facility.
Joe Camilleri is the principal performer and Repertoire Director. A legend of Australian contemporary rock music through his bands Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons and The Black Sorrows, Joe has been a Van Morrison fan from the first stirrings of his interest in music. His knowledge of the Morrison Songbook combined with his understanding of Morrison’s R&B, Soul and Celtic arrangements make him the ideal celebrant of the genius of this enigmatic Modern Master.
Vince Jones is a regular headliner throughout Australia. Here he joins Joe to bring his own silky skills to Morrison’s jazz oriented arrangements. Accompanying musicians have increasingly walked a fine line between his pop/rock roots and jazz sophistication. Vince will interpret this cross-dressed genre perfectly.
Christine Anu is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her debut album Stylin’ Up. To mark this event she has recently released Restylin’ Up 20 Years – a live album honouring the iconic album that catapulted her career and established her as one of most loved and successful indigenous artists.
To add to the brilliant line-up on stage will be The Voodoo Sheiks and The Silo String Quartet - a ten piece brassy celebration of everything Allen Toussaint started. The Silo String Quartet will complete the Voodoo Sheiks Orchestra. Their eclectic blend of classical and jazz readings will allow Music Director John McCall the breadth of instrumentation the Van Morrison Songbook demands.
The faithful interpretation of Morrison by Joe, Vince’s ability to read the lyric of a song and respect the integrity of the original, and the wonderful voice of Christine Anu will ensure a thrilling night of music. In the hands of this exciting cast of performers and musicians - it will be a night to remember.
With a proud and priceless legacy dating back to 1851, Seppeltsfield is Australia's iconic wine estate. Seppeltsfield is famed for the Centennial Collection - an irreplaceable and unbroken lineage of Tawny of every vintage from 1878 to current year.
The visitor section of the estate, first built in 1851, has been redeveloped to provide an expansive courtyard with stonework reflecting original local paving as well as a water feature, terraces, promenade, and seven Canary Island palm tree transplants.
The facility includes the highly-awarded Willunga restaurant FINO, run by the same duo behind the original, chef David Swain and host Sharon Romeo. For upcoming events visit their website here.
