THE POOR MAN’S GRAND PIANO @ MELBOURNE CABARET FESTIVAL
Thu 24 June 9:00pm (note changed time due to COVID restrictions)
Prepare for a journey through some great music sourced from the works of Randy Newman, Kurt Weill, Led Zeppelin and the rich history of music from New Orleans.
Your guide along the road will be the Melbourne Accordion Orchestra, an ensemble with a 19 year history of continuous performance in this wonderful city of ours. The members of MAO harness their love and knowledge of music from diverse cultural background brought together by the Poor Man’s Grand Piano. Under the musical direction of accordion maestro George Butrumlis MAO explores musical difference and diversity through an instrument that has never occupied centre stage….until now! For the Melbourne Cabaret Festival, MAO will be joined by Cameron Goodall, founding member of the ARIA award winning band, The Audreys, star of Sound of Falling Stars and a very special mystery guest.
