**Please note this performance has been rescheduled**
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Paul Kelly joins forces with distinguished composer and pianist Paul Grabowsky to present a stunning concert reimagining Kelly’s extraordinary body of work. A performance of songs from their new album which explores Kelly’s legendary catalogues.
A national treasure considered by many as Australia’s greatest and most enduring songwriter, Kelly has spun an long and illustrious career. His work spans from tender songcraft, hard-edges rock’n’roll, country, folk, bluegrass and soul to albums exploring Shakespeare’s sonnets, bird-inspired poems and music for funerals.
In this sublime union of the two Pauls, Grabowsky’s extensive trove of musical knowledge give Kelly’s original songs a fresh framework while never losing sight of the craftsman’s intent.
This unique body of work sees Kelly performing selections of his catalogue with new interpretations by Grabowsky, who accompanies him on piano.
The first taste of the collaboration comes in the way of double 'A' side single 'If I Could Start Today Again' / 'Please Leave Your Light On'. Album also includes 'Winter Coat', 'Petrichor', 'Time and Tide' and Cole Porter's 'Every Time We Say Goodbye'.
