Posted Saturday, October 12, 2013

Tritton Hall (Hut 44)
Addison Road Centre

Join John's family and friends as they reminisce and remember him.

John joined the Bush Music Club in 1962, at the recommendation of his colleague & future wife Dale, around the same time that his good mate Chris Woodland joined. Chris was MC at BMC Singabout nights until he left Sydney in 1967, & will be the MC for this concert, as he was at the launch of John's 3rd book in 2012.

Cost $5, bring a plate

Bring a song or poem written by John, one he liked or one written about him, or bring a memory to share.
