Iconic Australian artists Paul Kelly and Charlie Owen have collaborated over many years, but had never recorded an album together. In 2016, this changed with the release of the superb Death’s Dateless Night. Paul said, “Charlie and I had talked over the years about making record together but had never got around to it. Driving to a friend’s funeral last year and discussing the songs we’d played another such occasions, separately and together, finally gave us our frame. Songs mostly written by others – Cole Porter, Townes Van Zandt, Leonard Cohen, Hank Williams, Lennon/McCartney – and some traditional.”
Port Fairy is a fitting stage to present songs from this incredible album, from the traditional Irish song “The Parting Glass”, to Hank Williams’ ‘Angel Of Death”.
