Gleny Rae Virus
A country girl with an international heart, Gleny Rae Virus is a multi-instrumentalist and educator who believes that music can build community and improve lives. She straddles a teaching and performance career just as easily as riding a quarter horse on a stock route. Gleny Rae Virus maintains her connection with rural Australia, playing gigs from outback shearing sheds and rodeos to international showcases in Nashville Tennessee and Austin Texas. She is an active advocate for refugee rights since appearing in the ground breaking television reality documentary Go Back to Where You Came From in 2011. Armed with a fiddle, accordion and an irreverent sense of humor, she performs and records with numerous Australian country roots bands when not busy with her own projects Gleny Rae Virus and her Playboys, The Junes and Daughters of the Rum Rebellion. Gleny Rae Virus brings a special vibrance and humor to the stage with her quirky original songs and lively interpretations of country, rockabilly and western swing classics.
Well you wouldn’t call him smart but you wouldn’t call him stupid neither… he does have sum kind of a way about him…weather he be damned or blessed he certainly can pull a song outta the deep earth or the space-less space and make you want to cry or yell or just about any plain old thing…
He speaks of bullshit and of truth and hes got a red raw beating heart and a soul which says a lot in this day and age….
He’s got a sound that hankers back to an earlier age but also to a future age where the plastic fancies of today are but dust….hes been called a lunatic a mystic a fool and a saint.. the truth is somewhere in between most likely…his name be Archer
