This special show is a rare opportunity to see two influential, unique talents in an historic venue.
Legendary outsider singer / songwriter DANIEL JOHNSTON has been championed by such luminaries as Tom Waits, David Bowie, Sonic Youth, and the late Kurt Cobain, who have variously covered his music, cited him as an influence, and lauded his talent for writing sincere, disarming and heartbreaking songs.
Daniel will be accompanied by an 11-piece orchestra for the first time in the career, giving us an opportunity to hear old favourites in a glorious new symphonic context.
Another progenitor of anti-folk JEFFREY LEWIS is part wry musician and part comic book artist, with complex and witty lyrics straight from the heart, and guitar style ranging from finger picked roots to outer space swoops. Tonight he performs a rare solo set.
