A celebration of the life and career of one of music's most cherished voices, Jeff Buckley.
The show brings together local artists with Grammy-nominated guitarist Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart, Lou Reed, John Cale, Patti Smith, Nick Cave), to commemorate the relationship between Jeff Buckley and the love which remains for his music here on Australian soil.
Through music, film, and memoir, the show documents the story of how Lucas and Buckley came to work together — a partnership which resulted in the co-written anthems 'Mojo Pin' & 'Grace', tracks that introduce Buckley's highly acclaimed 1994 album of the same name (which has since gone 8x Platinum in Australia, having sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide).
Audiences will get the opportunity not only to listen to first-hand recounts of the pair's friendship, insights into the creative process, and the joy of collaboration, but also see a mix of previously unreleased & archive footage, as well as hearing the music that they know and love.
With a setlist that incorporates tracks from Buckley's father, lauded American singer- songwriter Tim Buckley, Jeff's early compositions and collaborations with Gary Lucas, cover material from Buckley's gigging repertoire (Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Johnny Cash, Edith Piaf), and classics from 'Grace', audiences will be able to enjoy a night of world-class music, played and celebrated by world-class musicians.
It is an intimate insight into the music and life of Jeff Buckley, whilst honouring the brilliant legacy he has left behind, 25 years on.
