Catherine Alcorn stars in
GO YOUR OWN WAY
The Story of Christine McVie
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.
Commissioned by Kate Ceberano for the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Go Your Own Way is the story of one of rock’s most famous songwriters and a celebration of great music and the tempestuous life of Christine McVie.
At the height of the Mac’s success she left the band to live a quiet life. Then she agreed to return; then she tweeted, “Sorry folks. No tour.” And then she changed her mind!
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.
In a career that so far spans four decades, the enigmatic McVie is brought to life by the award-winning Catherine Alcorn who brings her own magic to some of the most memorable songs of the 20th century including Little Lies, Everywhere, Don’t Stop and Songbird.
Magnificent! Alcorn’s bravura performance in Go Your Own Way had the audience on its feet and screaming for more.
