Pam & Norm have been playing folk & bush music since the 70s when they were involved with Newcastle Folk Club. They were foundation members of the band Rum Culls and later members of Bush Bandicoots.

They regularly play for Bush Music Club dances.

The Merrigans are renowned for Irish, Australian & Celtic music, but tonight will concentrate on Australian songs.

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), 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.
