ABOUT THE SHOW

Eric Bogle is probably best known for his now iconic song ‘The Band Played Waltzing Matilda’, but he is far from being a one-hit wonder. His songs have been recorded by Joan Baez, Mary Black, Donovan, Slim Dusty, John Williamson, Billy Bragg, The Pogues and The Furies, just to name a few.

With 14 albums to his credit, appearances at every major Folk & Country Music Festival around the world and a touring schedule that has included eight tours of North America, ten around Europe and multiple Australian shows, Eric Bogle has decided that it is time to take it easy. This will be his last extensive tour in Australia.

Described as a living legend, a label he’s uncomfortable with, but points out is “marginally better than being a dead legend…”.

This last legendary Australian tour will be one not to be missed.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Eric Bogle is one of the best and most prolific songwriters of the last several decades.

An Australian resident for 53 years, and an Australian citizen since 1982, he is an internationally known and respected singer/songwriter who has toured internationally for 25 years up until 2009, in spite of warnings to “stop it or you’ll go blind”. Whilst Eric usually confines his touring to Australia and New Zealand, he has not given up songwriting and recording.

Eric is a warm and engaging stage performer, and his songs have the knack of getting straight to the heart of the matter with intelligent and well-crafted lyrics. His songs have been recorded by many other artists ranging from Joan Baez, Donovan, The Pogues and Mary Black through to our own late, great Slim Dusty. Voices is Eric’s 16th CD and confirms his status as one of Australia’s most renowned folk singer songwriters.

Very much ahead of the pack, Eric Bogle wrote the classic And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda and No Man’s Land (The Greenfields Of France), which were placed No.1 and 5 respectively in a Celebrity Top 50 Songs Poll in a national newspaper, above such international artists as Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Leonard Cohen and John Prine.

“I recommend that if you haven’t seen him live, put it on your to-do list and immerse yourself in the majesty of Eric Bogle and his music.” Jon Wolfe, Country Music Capital News
