Black Rabbit George @ Clancy’s Dunsborough

If you’ve ever seen Tijuana Cartel then you’ll know just how good a guitarist Paul George is – and he’s even better now having spent some weeks honing his skills at flamenco school in southern Spain. His other band, Black Rabbit George, returns to Clancy’s Dunsborough with a brand new album and an accompanying new live set. It’s doom folk and gypsy flamenco driven by fierce and cutting virtuoso style guitar coupled with poetic, story-driven lyrics, ranging from deceptively simple songs to driving beats and mesmerising tunes. He is joined by English fiddler Phoebe Corke who makes the occasional, ill-fated, challenge to match him note for note. Luckily her sublime playing (and harmony singing) make up for falling behind George on the notes-per-second count. Local favourite Duncan Strachan will be doing his thing on bass while Jimmy Winwood shows his drumming mastery. The new album, “Charles” was inspired by time George recently spent working in Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory.
