    Event description


    Two of Australia’s finest singer songwriters, in concert, for the first time.

    Reviewing Mike McClellan, much loved music critic, the late Ed Nimmervoll wrote, “You

    can have your John Denvers, Gordon Lightfoots and Ross Ryans. Put Mike McClellan in

    there and there’s no competition.”

    When American folk icon Judy Collins says, “Ami Williamson is a genius, my favourite act

    at the Port Fairy Folk Music Festival!” you can assume Ami is also pretty damned good.

    Mike McClellan has long been regarded as one of the finest songwriters this country has

    produced with a string of iconic songs that have seeped into the musical identity of

    Australia, notably of course, Song and Dance Man, by which he has been for ever

    identified. That he also happens to be a wonderful singer/guitarist is a given who, as

    reviewer Steve Britt recently wrote, “holds the audience in the palm of his hand.”

    Ami Williamson is a rare performer. Classically trained in music and theatre, her musical

    instincts also draw on the folk music she loved growing up as the daughter of icon Aussie

    singer songwriter John Williamson. She writes, plays several instruments, sings like a

    dream and absolutely owns the stage.

    Put the two of them in concert together and you have a unique combination of two

    remarkable talents who, at the end of the evening, will share the stage to perform some

    of the classic songs they love from the folk era.
