Well known for his one man Banjo Patterson show Geoffrey Graham is Dinkum Oz Entertainment, a truely unique style of entertainment encompassing comedy, bush poetry,whipcracking, and all things genuinely Australian. No gimmicks, no pretention, just well rehearsed, smoothly executed and come at you “straight form the heart”.
Geoffrey was born on a sheep station in Armadale and raised on good Robertson spud country. He has had a variety of occupations from sheep shearing to playing in rock and roll bands to acting in such Aussie classics as Carsons Law, Neighbours and The Anzacs. Geoffrey has had a lifelong love affair with poems of traditional Australian poets but holds a special place for the works of Banjo Patterson. Come along and enjoy some fair dinkum Aussie entertainment from one of the masters of the genre. Australian traditional entertainment is fast becoming an endangered species, don’t miss out on catching some while you still can!
Aitch and Jane
To perfectly compliment Geoffrey we have a pair of Aussie swagpersons! Aitch is a bush poet extraordinaire and him and Jane also perform songs on guitar and bodhran/ tin whistle with a traditional Australian flavour.
You’ll be sorry if you miss them as well. I reckon you’ll be able to smell the eucalyptus and the campfire complete with snags!
+ Floor spots welcome!
