George Clarke's Old House, New Home - Graham Clarke (musician) - Netflix
Graham Peter Clarke (born July 11, 1970) is an American musician, songwriter, arranger, and entertainer. Active since 1995 and performing frequently in the New York metropolitan area, Clarke is regarded as one of New York's most popular and long-lasting children's entertainers and recording artists having played well over 5,000 musical performances on the east coast for both children and adults. His style has been described as funny and “off-center”. He has yet to sign to any label and continues to self-publish his music.

Released in June 2001, American Blue again saw Clarke moving further out of his one-man-one-guitar recordings. This time he brought on his brother Tommy Clarke to help produce. They recorded over a weekend at the studio of Jazz-o-lution bassist's Marshall Topo, with whom he had worked for Carla Henderson's “Your Tiny” videos) in Port Chester, NY. The album's crown jewel, “Fancy Pants”, is a paean to one of Clarke's musical heroes, David Bowie. But many of Clarke's songs are clearly the product by his local work with groups of children in the Lower Hudson Valley region of New York and Clarke has said at his live shows that “Jack, Jack, Jackson and Jason” are four actual boys from one of his music classes. Always assuming intelligence on the part of the child, Clarke arranged a version of the Christmas carol 'We Three Kings" incorporated elements from Mozart's Requiem Mass, especially the vocal portion of “Lacrimosa dies illa”. American Blue also featured Clarke's first a cappella recording, a reworking of the Georgia Sea Island folksong “Old Lady Come from Brewster” using only his voice for the “instruments”. The album's “Sword and Shield” is noted on the back cover as “for Peg”, apparently a dedication to his wife.
