Paul Kelly and Paul Grabowsky: 'Please Leave Your Light On' Event Stream

This is a ticketed online event.


Paul Kelly and Paul Grabowsky are each deservedly regarded as masters of their chosen crafts. Kelly is counted amongst Australia’s most lauded wordsmiths, while Grabowsky is one of our most decorated note-smiths.

In an Australian exclusive, the two music icons debut works from their new album, Please Leave Your Light On, taken mainly from Kelly’s vast catalogue. With an extensive trove of musical ingenuity, Grabowsky injects new life into the original songs without ever losing sight of Kelly’s creative vision.

The new arrangements for voice and piano draw on the grand tradition of torch singing, evoking the legendary duets of Tony Bennett and Bill Evans, Nelson Riddle and Frank Sinatra.

‘You get to hear Paul in a way that maybe people have never quite heard him … people can hear every single word and in his songs the words are gold.’ Paul Grabowsky, The Age
