Dave Graney and Clare Moore Play Portland Arts Centre
July 23 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Dave Graney and Clare Moore — duo with guitars/vibes/keys/melodica
However they choose to play, they bring their story and their songbook which stretches to over 40 albums. They make show like few others. During the initial Melbourne pandemic lockdown they started doing online shows every week, sometimes twice a week and revisited songs from all these albums as well as workshopping new material. They kept their performing nerve and playing and writing skills sharp. Then the lockdown eased and they played some shows around Australia. Then the lockdown came back again. Lucky their lockdown nerves held too.
The duo’s latest album is a classic Compact Disc packed with too many songs for vinyl. It’s an album for the freaks called EVERYTHING WAS FUNNY.
They’ll be playing some of the album cuts – mixed in with old classics from their extensive songbook – along with some choice interpretations of other people’s songs for this album launch in Portland.
When people ask you in the future, “what was it like in those years-2020-2022?” You can begin by stroking your chin and saying …”weeelll… everything was funny”…
