60’s Divas “Along Comes Mary” return to Bundaleer

Melissa Smith

Along Comes Mary completes the trifecta of events for Fringe in the Forest

Bundaleer Forest will be rocking with classic hits from the 60s and 70s when ‘Along Comes Mary’ returns with their highly-anticipated Fringe show, DIVA! Latin for Goddess.

Along Comes Mary brings a nostalgic night of performances paying homage to the golden era of Pop Divas. Filled with fabulous retro music, the ‘Marys’ celebrate the style and timeless hits from the leading ladies of the bygone era, including Dusty Springfield, Dianna Ross and Petula Clark.

Mary-Jane Hendry, Marianne Loftus – “The Marys” and guitarist Stephen Stone formed Along Comes Mary a decade ago, gaining huge popularity with sold-out Fringe shows. David Bentley and Tom Stehlik have now joined the Mary family on bass and drums. A former Jamestown local, Mary-Jane’s passion is jazz and of course, the ’60s, while Marianne’s early influences were the Everly Brothers, Del Shannon, and Ella Fitzgerald.


Along Comes Mary

DIVA! Latin for Goddess is the perfect opportunity to grab your vintage hats, gloves, and pearls to bust your grooviest moves on the dance floor. The fabulous  ‘Mary Dancers’, Susan van der Jeugd and Jane Juckers will be on hand to get the crowd on their feet with their Divalisious dance moves.

Guests will be treated to pre-show entertainment with the talents of acoustic artists Scott Rathman Jnr and ‘Neenaw’ featuring Courteney Hooper. Scott Rathman, a rising star fresh from the Tamworth Country Music Festival, will bring some country rock to the forest, featuring his new original single “Angel on the Hill.” Neenaw, an Adelaide-based art-pop pseudonym of Courteney Hooper, promises a whimsical journey through song, drawing inspiration from artists like Kate Bush, Fiona Apple, and Regina Spektor.

The Marys will hit the stage at 8pm but before they do, enjoy delicious paella from Nick McInerney of Simmer and Spice or wrap your laughing gear around a Yiros and chips from Mumma T’s. For sweet tooths Golden North Icecream will slide down a treat and stay caffeinated with Splendid Co offering coffee and iced drinks all evening. Bar facilities will also be available on the night along with alcohol-free options.

Pack a chair or picnic rug to enjoy the spectacular outdoor space of Bundaleer’s Maple and Pine, with pre-show performances kicking off at 5.30pm.

For those looking to make the journey to Bundaleer Forest hassle-free, the Fringe Forest bus service is available from Jamestown, with bookings a must.

Fringe in the Forest has three different events on offer over the Festival period, which wouldn’t be possible without the work of volunteers, Jamestown and Bundaleer businesses, and the Adelaide Fringe Fund.
