Bush Music Club - Duke's Place - Australian songs in concert & session with Chloe & Jason Roweth

The Bush Music Club is celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year.


Duke's place, named after our honoured early member Harold 'Duke' Tritton (1886-1965), will be the place to go once a month for a great night of Australian songs in concert and session. Duke was a powerful singer who supplied BMC with many songs he had learnt in his younger days while working as a shearer and at other bush jobs. He was also a songwriter and poet giving us songs that have entered the tradition such as 'Sandy Hollow Line' and 'Shearing in the Bar'.

Tonight's guests are BMC members Chloe & Jason Roweth who will be supported by a Mystery Guest who will open the evening at 8pm. Don't be late!

Chloë & Jason Roweth (vocals, guitar, bouzouki, mandolin, mandola) have been researching and reinventing Australian bush music / entertainment for over twenty years. The Roweths’ broad repertoire of bush songs allows both the humour and surprising depth of traditional Australian bush ballads, poetry and dance tunes to shine through. They’ve gathered a bulging swag of new material for 2014 - songs of the kitchen, the verandah, the shearers’ huts, the front bar of the local, and the campfire.

The concert will be followed by a singing session.

 

 

Door opens 7.30 for 8pm start, gates close at midnight.


Cost - $10

Bring a plate for supper
