Van Morrison’s Masterpieces: Astral Weeks + Moondance

Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre 2020 Season

Saturday 21 March | 8pm

ON SALE NOW TO MEMBERS, ON SALE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC ON MON 9 DEC. 

When The Beatles stopped touring and progressed to psychedelic rock, and Dylan left folk and went electric, Van Morrison hired some of New York’s finest jazz musicians and recorded two of the classic albums of that golden era – Astral Weeks and Moondance.

Both albums had enormous impact on aspiring musicians and singers around the world. Australian jazz legend, Vince Jones was one of them. Now, Jones, a remarkable jazz interpreter, has invited a selection of Australia’s finest jazz/rock musicians to form The Astral Orchestra.

His Music Director, Matt McMahon joins him in this homage to Morrison’s extraordinary repertoire; his most acclaimed album, the magical Astral Weeks – a poetic, mercurial blend of jazz, folk and blues – plus the wonderful soul and jazz influenced Moondance.
