‘That’s Not How I Heard It!’ - Jason Roweth 
Some joker asked What is truth?, then buggered off… But Jason’s here with some bush poetry and yarns with a song or three thrown in. Lawson, Paterson, Dengate, Kevans, anon & etc… a show from the bush and beyond - with a grateful nod to the early days of the Bush Music Club.

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.
