About the Event

No one who saw Leonard at Sandalford winery when he restarted touring in 2009 (at the age of 74!) will ever forget it. It was sublime. Nick Turner saw him then and indeed all three times he returned to Perth.  And years before that, he kept himself alive busking his way round Europe and across America playing Leonard’s songs.   The Secret Chords seek to capture the wonderfully rich and joyful atmosphere of those last gigs,  but also the feeling so many of us got when we listened to a darker, more spartan Leonard in our bedrooms in our early teens. And indeed, thanks to Phoebe Deklerk, the incredible soaring reinterpretations of Leonard’s songs by Jennifer Warnes and KD Lang.   This show, which sold out at Clancy’s Freo last month, is a respectful heartfelt homage to the genius, wisdom, humour and humility of one of the greatest poet singer songwriters.   The band:  Nick Turner           - Lead vocals and guitars  Phoebe Deklerk   - Lead and accompanying vocals  Adam Gare           - Fiddle, Mandolin, backing vocals  Mark Raph           - Keyboards  Phil Bailey            - Bass Guitar, backing vocals  Anand Neerava    - Drums and Percussion  Greg Dear            - Special Guest on Vocals
