For over forty years, Don Walker’s songwriting has captured what it is to be Australian.
As part of Brisbane Powerhouse’s Writers+Ideas series, Don Walker sits down with fellow Australian music icon, Troy Cassar-Daley to discuss Walker’s new book of collected lyrics, Songs.
From Cold Chisel to Catfish, Tex, Don & Charlie to his solo work, as well as many other writing collaborations, Walker’s words are poetic, moving and incisive. Including classics such as Khe Sanh, Flame Trees, Cheap Wine and Harry was a Bad Bugger, this collection reveals the breadth of Walker’s vision and the precision of his prose.
These lyrics live on the page, with or without the memory of music. Interspersed with autobiographical sketches and anecdotes, Songs is a must-have for fans of Walker’s brilliant, razor-sharp storytelling.
Don’t miss this intimate and insightful discussion.
