Music in the Gallery
With a huge variety of skills and a massive knowledge of music, Adam O’Connor has a tune for every heart and every soul.

While the Logan Art Gallery usually resounds with the quiet conversations of intrigued patrons viewing the artworks on display, the popular venue will come alive with the rhythms of local artist, Adam O’Connor, on Saturday 26 April.

With 25 years’ of playing experience, O’Connor has a wide variety of musical experiences and styles to his credit.

His debut album, 2 Head City, was described as, “unorthodox and beautiful,” and laid the foundation for a fusion of styles ripped straight from his eclectic combination of musical experiences.

Libraries and Cultural Services Manager, Annette Turner, said the Yatala local’s funky, fiery solo guitar work would help inform and change the way visitors interpreted the gallery artworks.

“Adam’s rockabilly playing melds with his Top 40 cover band knowledge and he works his way around his instruments like a bird in the breeze,” she said.

“Having played in rock, funk, traditional, acid jazz, and fusion jazz ensembles, among others, he will open up your mind to the possibilities hidden within the visual subtext of the artwork.

“He’s hinted that a few special guests may be joining him for the performance as well so it will certainly be one not to miss.”

With a huge variety of skills and a massive knowledge of music, Adam O’Connor has a tune for every heart and every soul.

Music in the Gallery will run between 2pm and 3.30pm on Saturday 26 April.

Light refreshments will be served and bookings are essential. Contact Logan Art Gallery on 3412 5519 by Wednesday 23 April to confirm your reservation.
