Robin Connaughton and John Warner, THE TEN QUID POMS, started singing together about five years ago,  and the duo was an instant success with a number of festival, club and concert performances, recently  including backing the German/Celtic group Cara and a stand-up ovation for a May day concert in Wollongong.

Look to them for great and creative harmonies, clever instrumentation and a lively stage presence, including the audience in their songs. They will take you into beautiful places in our heritage, as well as happy and sad ones. They have their roots in traditional Australian and English music, and compose many songs in the same genre, as well as singing those of other Australian writers, such as John Dengate and Alistair Hulett. John has written a huge number of songs, and many themed albums, including Yarri of Wiradjuri and Pithead and the Fern. The two of them collaborated to write We Made The Steel, about Robin's experiences in the NSW steelworks, very well received in England as well as Australia.

Duke's Place, 2nd Fridays February to December, 7.30 for 8pm start - concert is followed by a session.

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.
