Fred Smith - Sparrows of Kabul (Adelaide)


Fri Sep 30 2022 at 07:30 pm to 10:00 pm


Prospect Town Hall | Adelaide, SA

Fred Smith and band will be presenting this extraordinary song cycle on Australia’s involvement in Afghanistan culminating in the dramatic evacuation from Kabul in August 2021. Fred was there at the beginning in Uruzgan Province and returned at the end working from Kabul International Airport (KIA). His epitaph for the mission is “it was what it was”, and we are left admiring the courage and tenacity of thousands of Afghans who braved the human logjams outside the gates of Kabul International Airport, and the soldiers and diplomats who helped them.
“A beautiful retelling of Australia’s Afghanistan experience” Adrienne Francis, ABC 666
“…an extraordinary, wonderful and heart-uplifting concert.”
Peter Wilkins, Canberra Critics Circle
“Finely observed snapshots of a harsh, sad and funny reality…In concert he has a knack for balancing drama and humour…towering artistic achievement”
John Shand, SMH
Performers: Jen Lush, Mark Seddon, Paul Angas, Stephen Pederson
