Eric Bogle and John Munro

Wednesday 16th August

13.50 (9 concessions and Regulars)

Doors open: 7pm Show starts: 8pm

Eric Bogle is roundish, shortish, baldish, fiftyish and Scottish.

An Australian resident for 35 years, and an Australian citizen since 1982, he is an internationally known and respected singer/songwriter and has been taking his music around the world for the last 25 years or so, in spite of warnings to "stop it or you'll go blind"

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.

John Munro was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1947 and escaped to Australia at the age of 18. Having had a flirtation with Folk Music in his home country John soon headed for the local folk haunts. He admits to being a founder member of Country Express (born 1969) and Colcannon (born 1988) and, more through luck than talent, has worked since 1980 as accompanist to Eric Bogle.
