Eric Bogle is probably best known for his song ‘The Band Played Waltzing Matilda’, which confirmed its iconic status by appearing as a question in the Australian version of Trivial Pursuit! But he is far from being a one-hit wonder. Some of his other songs: No Man’s Land (The Green Fields of France), Leaving Nancy, Now I’m Easy, Shelter, My Youngest Son Came Home Today, & If Wishes were Fishes are now beginning to rival ‘Matilda’ in the icon stakes.
After taking a break from touring, Eric has decided that the lure of getting out into theatres & clubs has been too strong so he’s hitting the road in May/June for a run-of-shows. “I recommend that if you haven’t seen him live, put it on your to-do list & immerse yourself in the majesty of Eric Bogle & his music” (Jon Wolfe Country Music Capital News).
Joining Eric & the band is the wonderful Ami Williamson. Described by the SMH as “forceful, funny, powerful & poetic”, Ami Williamson is an Alt-Folk Singer/Songwriter like no other!
