One Seeker and the Song & Danceman

March 18, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Seeker Keith Potger & Mike McClellan

Doors: 7.30pm Show: 8pm

Tickets: $40  18+

 

Master singer-songwriter Mike McClellan and Seeker Keith Potger celebrate the folk-pop music of the 60s and 70s – which inspired them to forge lasting careers both in Australia and Internationally   – and showcase the music they have continued to create for decades.

Long-time friends, who have for years said they ought to share the stage, they have finally got it together.  They both began performing in the folk clubs of the 60s – Keith in Melbourne with the Seekers and Mike in Sydney.  The Seekers took off to Britain and conquered the world while Mike built his career in Australia as one of this country’s pre-eminent songwriter/guitarists, whose music was to be covered around the world.

They will each perform a solo set but will also share the stage to swap vocals and harmonies on songs they grew up with and their own much-loved material.  And, of course, with such rich histories there will be plenty of stories.

While the Seekers would always remain the anchor around which Keith built his career he has gone on to write and record extensively, creating an enviable repertoire of timeless songs which have continued to delight audiences around Australia for decades. And of course, as with so many of the Seekers hits, his 12 string guitar has continued to define his music.

Mike McClellan will be forever known as The Song and Dance Man after the title of his classic 1974 hit.  However, his return to full time writing and performing in the last ten years has proven beyond any doubt that he remains one of the finest song writers this country has ever produced.  If proof were ever needed listen to I Wonder Who You’re Waiting For from a recent album.  Two years ago, concert goer Carmel Glover, wrote: “I was amazed and delighted to find you were better than ever.  I have to admit I had tears in my eyes through most of it.”

This will be a memorable series of concerts from two of Australia’s most loved acoustic writer/performers.
