Duke's Place - Australian Songs in concert & session with Dave Johnson, Friday 9th September, 2016

Bush Music Club
Tritton Hall
Hut 44, Addison Road Centre
142 Addison Rd, Marrickville

In a rare solo performance at Dukes Place in September, Dave presents a swag of old, and not so old, bush songs and tunes that resonate with the Australian psyche. Many of these will be from his mammoth book of Australian songs, including poems that he has set to tunes and others unearthed in his folkloric studies, and accompanied with guitar, banjo and concertina. Plus, on fiddle and concertina, some wonderful collected dance tunes that he has had some special association with.

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.
