1 hour each from John Dengate & Bob Campbell (floor spots only, no support!)
For over sixty years, John has been writing songs and poetry about life in Australia and his performances reflect his deep interest in history, his humanity, his sense of humour and his irreverence. While he is best known for the performance of his songs of satire and political comment, John has also written songs of deep compassion about his family and everyday Australians who battle through life. He is also referred to as a National Treasure.
Despite all these achievements he is known for his one great weakness -
he is a failed punter. BigRuss Hannah, AOM
He has recorded many CDs, both solo and with his band, Home Rule, and has toured and performed extensively, here and overseas, playing his particular style of distinctively Australian music.
Bob's set will include the songs from his radio play "Running on the Great Divide" the story of Wiradjuri man Jimmy Governor who finally exploded after years of racist treatment & humiliation by the local whites who employed him, and with his brother Joe killed nine people. For ninety days they were the subject of the largest manhunt in Australian history.
