Event Description

We are thrilled to welcome back My Darling Clementine to The Acorn as they continue to tour in support of their most recent, hugely acclaimed release Country Darkness’ – the songs of Elvis Costello’

The album is a collaboration between Michael and Lou, and Costello’s long-time right-hand man, the brilliant pianist Steve Nieve. They have taken 12 EC songs and re-worked them for two voices,  adding their own inimitable duet style.

They make the songs feel like they’ve always been duets

Sydney Morning Herald

Costello’s songs lend themselves perfectly to the stylings of our greatest duo.

Country Music People

They develop Costello’s original work taking it to new places. Their vocal delivery takes ownership of these songs.


 “Costello’s songs, King and Dalgleish’s voices, Nieve’s keys… it’s a perfect fit.”


But King & Dalgleish are not simply interpreters; they are songwriters of the very highest calibre, too, who’s 5 albums to date and over 1000 live shows have won them fans around the world.

Their current live show will feature a number of the Costello songs,  as well as many favourites from the duo’s 11-year back catalogue, songs from Michael’s recent solo album ‘The Struggle’,  and also showcase brand new material from the forthcoming new My Darling Clementine album.
