Through The Go-Betweens, his extensive solo catalogue and collaborative works, Grant McLennan touched many of us through his joyously crafted songs. 2016 marks 10 years since Grant’s untimely passing and seems a fitting time to spend an evening celebrating this man’s fine work. For one night only, young performers will gather alongside Grant’s peers to perform selections of his solo work and The Go-Betweens songs, and share a song of their own influenced by Grant’s songwriting. There will be close to a dozen acts on the lineup, many performing in one-off collaborations. On the Closing Night of the 20th Darebin Music Feast, some of the last sounds to ring out in people’s ears will be of the enduring tunes from one of the finest songwriters that Australia has ever produced. This will be a very special occasion, never to be repeated and definitely not to be missed. Doors at 5:30pm, event finishes at midnight.
