Graeme Allwright; NZ/French Singer Documentary


About the show

Playing tracks by

Louis Armstrong .

Graeme Allwright is a French singer/songwriter of the late-'60s folk era best known for his French-language adaptations of songs by Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and others, in addition to his own "folk" styled songs.

Born on November 7, 1926, in Wellington, New Zealand, he moved to France in 1948 - though he could speak practically no French at the time. Years later, he began performing as a folk singer/songwriter and ultimately was offered a major-label recording contract with the Philips subsidiary Phonogram in the late '60s.

Graeme has enjoyed a long and successful career - he still tours constantly (at the age of 83) and has earnt his rightful place alongside France's most famous singers.

This interview was recorded by Sam Coley at Graeme's appartment in central Paris on the 27th of Sept. 2010 - for Radio New Zealand.
