Peter is a late-comer to BMC and bush music, having joined at the urging of a member in 2005. He played guitar with Concert Party at dances and festivals, and was inspired to start writing poetry by the example of Concert Party's resident poet, Eddie Sampson. Writing poems soon led to writing songs, mostly with Australian inspiration, some of which have become part of the Concert Party repertoire. As he says I am a product of the BMC for which I'm extremely grateful.


Duke's place, named after our honoured early member Harold 'Duke' Tritton (1886-1965), is 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.
