EARLY FOLK is the name of the show. Its FOR early folk. June 19th -23rd.
Wednesday 19th will kick it off with a 6pm start. Thursday , Friday and Saturday will be at 7pm and Sunday will finish at 6pm.
Its a lot of days in one place. But I want to do something different.The room fits maybe 80 people , seated in a small theatre mode.
I am bored shitless with playing too late in bars and clubs. Early starts are for me too! Its plain silly the way shows have to be so late. Let the gig happen and then hang around and socialize if you want to! How crazy an idea!
I am playing solo with an acoustic guitar or two. (six and twelve string) I have had a strong taste for abstract jazz and folk artists over the last decade and have been recording an art pop acoustic album this year. I will play a song or two from that project as well as other songs of mine that fit the mode. I love playing with the mistLY but also have grown to enjoy this way of playing. Its a lot looser and I can access a lot more of my material. I'm hoping each night will be a little different.
The venue is pretty special and I can't do this sort of a show anywhere else. The ticket prices are a lot cheaper if you book with a group.
here is a link to book
The Butterfly Club is narrow and extends over three levels with several small bars..
This level has chairs at the window looking out onto Collins street...
After the show you can walk back out to Little Collins street...

- WORKSHY - 2017 memoir out on Affirm Press. Let's get Tight - 2017 CD with Clare Moore. Moodists - Coral Snakes - mistLY. I don’t know what I am and don’t want to know any more than I already know. I aspire, in my music , to 40s B Movie (voice and presence) and wish I could play guitar like Charlie Christian or Grant Green -but not in this lifetime, I know.
2014 solo album from Dave Graney. *****"If I've learnt anything in my years of writing about music it's that if you are going to do anything of worth in this tough game, you better have your own thing. Today's generic is easily replaced by tomorrow's. And yet you need to be flexible, to follow wherever the songs demand. In the case of this, only the second credited as a solo album among 30 or so Graney releases, it's a curious yet welcoming lane he walks you down, with acoustic guitars, not much percussion, vibes, smooth sounds. At the end of it you feel like you've awoken from a strange yet pleasant summer's dream. As shot by Luis Bunuel. It ranges from off-kilter reveries (A Woman Skinnies Up a Man, The Old Docklands Wheel) through to the softly seductive (How Can You Get Out of London) and the downright arch (Look Into My Shades, Everything Is Great In The Beginning.) This is music that is neither folk, nor blues, nor country, but it's all Graney, somewhere out to the left field beyond Lee Hazlewood's raised eyebrow. It's astringent on the tongue but sweetens in the telling." Noel Mengel Brisbane Courier Mail
