The Fossickers are five lively lasses, united by a love of inventing creative
harmonies and delving into the old recordings, digging up forgotten gems. They
sing Australian, English and American folk, shape note hymns, gospel songs and
sea shanties. 
For their performance at Dukes, you can be sure the Fossickers will have some moving arrangements of traditional Australian bush songs, but they'll also have some surprising choices from contemporary Australian songwriters.

from the Editorial in Singabout 1(1) 1956 -
aims of the Bush Music Club - to popularise Australian folk song and to encourage the composition of a new kind of song - one that is traditional in style but contemporary in theme.

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.
