Parks, who rose to fame through his works with Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys in the 60s, also worked with Johns and Silverchair on the ‘Diorama’ (2002) and ‘Young Modern’ (2007) albums.

He has also worked with Ringo Starr, Harry Nilsson, The Byrds and The Grateful Dead in a career spanning 50 years.

“They [the songs] represent my 50 year span in music, as a sceptical enthusiast who’s reflected on America’s foibles and triumphs, in war and peace. Much of it seen through a glass darkly, but with the illumination of some admittedly stunning orchestration. Think Roots music, gussied up for the Tux set,” Parks said in a statement.

Kimbra and Johns will also perform solo as well as duets during the show. “Kimbra is as cool as a white-hot recording artist can be. With her celebrated Warner Brothers’ debut album [Vows] just behind her, I’m blown away by her carving out some precious time to celebrate my body of work at Adelaide Festival.” said Parks.

Van Dyke Parks with Kimbra, Daniel Johns and the Adelaide Art Orchestra will happened Friday March 8 at 8pm at the Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide.
