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

We start the year with the return of singing to the Hut, Tritton Hall, BMC's headquarters at the Addison Road Centre in Marrickville.

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 very early member of BMC, 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.

Our first guest is Ralph Pride, long time BMC member.

Time 7.30 - 11.30

Cost - $10

Bring a plate for supper
