The performance at Humph Hall will include their themed presentation Campfire Seditions.
In this toothsome presentation, the Roweths trace seditious and rebellious songs of interest throughout Australia's history, with an eye for how the old may have informed the new.
The show features songs from the time of early penal settlement, convict rebels, gold rush bushrangers, the Kelly uprising, and the anti-conscription and labour movements.
In particular, they explore some seditious threads handed down in rebellious ballads from the old countries – Ireland in particular, and linking the words of Frank the Poet, the songs of the Gardiner / Hall / Gilbert gang of 1860s NSW, and ballads of the Kelly Gang.
The songs and stories seem to resonate through the generations, inspiring and informing the characters and events in the new ballads as they appear.
Formerly the Allambie Heights Uniting Church, Humph Hall is now the private home of Gial Leslie and Wayne Richmond.
As with all concerts in Humph Hall, Chloë & Jason will be performing acoustically - no PA system!
