About Graeme Allwright

Graeme Allwright is a French singer/songwriter of the late-'60s folk era. His mainstream breakthrough came in 1968 with Le Jour de Clarté, his third album. Comprised largely of French-language adaptations of songs by Leonard Cohen, Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton, and Roger Miller, it was a landmark album of the epoch. Subsequent efforts proved significantly less monumental, and though his output was unsteady, he remained active throughout the '70s. Some of Allwright's more notable albums include Chante Leonard Cohen (1973), a collection of Cohen covers in the mold of "Suzanne," and A L'Olympia (1973), a double-album live performance featuring covers of Bob Dylan ("Blowin' in the Wind"), among others. ~ Jason Birchmeier
