WINNER SYDNEY GLUG AWARD FOR BEST CABARET ARTIST 2014

 

"Easily the highlight of my festival weekend was the magnificent Ms Catherine Alcorn. She's a Sydney lass and her bravura performance in Go Your Own Way had the audience on its feet and screaming for more."

- THE AUSTRALIAN WOMEN'S WEEKLY

 

"The song list is a knockout, particularly for listeners of a certain age. Alcorn personalises McVie’s songs with surges of voluptuous power and ethereal floated notes and has impeccable intonation too – quite the package really."

- Deborah Jones, THE AUSTRALIAN

 

"Musically, the show is a cracker. Alcorn sings it superbly – arguably better than McVie herself. She has a rich, powerful voice, which she uses with sensitivity and skill, and a big, warm stage presence." 

- Jo Litson, THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

 

 

Christine McVie was the girl who started out as a school teacher, picked up a bass guitar and began to sing the blues. Then she joined Fleetwood Mac and made rock history.

 

Go Your Own Way is a celebration of great music and the tempestuous life of the Mac’s most famous songwriter.

 

Always an intriguing figure, Christine’s contrary attitude to global fame, ridiculous wealth, love and loss, personal privacy, songwriting and music is at the heart of her story.

 

At the height of their success she left to live a quiet life. Then she agreed to rejoin; then she tweeted, “Sorry folks. No tour.” And then she changed her mind!

 

In a career that has so far spanned four decades, the enigmatic Christine McVie is brought to life in 80 music-packed minutes by Catherine Alcorn who brings her own magic to some of the most memorable songs of the 20the century including Little Lies, Everywhere, Don’t Stop and Songbird.
