Martin Pearson returns to The Dog!

Yes folks, he's back at The Loaded Dog again, tho this year he won't be wearing his elegant satin robes, so he won't be melting in Sydney's humidity.

This year we get the Martin Pearson we all know & love (not that we didn't love his 2 hour musical epic last year), a bloke with guitar (no fancy props!) singing his normal (if there is such a thing) mix of serious & silly songs, interspersed with stories & humour.

As John Dengate says:

Oh! Fill up your beer, son,
And drink to Martin Pearson,
For he is the best ...
Have no bloody fear, son!
The support act is Dog Walking Backwards, the only group named after a dog who had only one way to get out of a tight situation. 4-part harmony, with a mix of styles including some familiar songs with original arrangements, some less familiar songs, and some original pieces.

$20/$18, (Bookings essential)
