Biography

Acoustic guitarist, singer and songwriter, Graeme Clark, has spent many years travelling all over Australia absorbing influences of the Australian spirit that find an outlet in his songs and music.

 

Graeme has a great love and admiration for traditional Aboriginal culture having spent time as a guest in different communities in Western Australia and the Northern Territory studying language, traditional music and didjeridu.

 

In addition to performing regularly across the Southern Highlands (which is home these days), Graeme has performed in many venues, large and small, across NSW, QLD and the NT, including the concert for drought relief at the Sydney Town Hall in 2007, the Illawarra Folk Festival, the Dame Mary Gilmore Fesival, the Goulburn Bush Music Gathering, various Australia Day festivals, and at the Crookwell Potato Festival! Graeme has also performed regularly at the Australian War Memorial where songs from his "ANZAC" collection found a natural home and a warm and appreciative reception.

 

Graeme's songs are a mix of wry humour, social observation and reflect his deep interest in Australian history and our sometimes quirky national character. In addition, Graeme's recordings have received airplay on ABC national and regional radio including a broadcast of his composition "Wildbird Dreaming" on Ian McNamara's "Australia All Over".
