Australian icon John Williamson has celebrated the release of his 52nd album, ‘Butcherbird’, with a national tour of the same name.
The tour will again see Williamson take his audience on a journey through the country, combining humour, romance, environmental issues, travelling songs and campfire stories woven together by the master storyteller’s songs. Unlike much of today’s music, John’s songs have real meaning. His new songs are no exception. The passage of time and life itself is captured in striking images. New songs such as ‘Don’t Forget Me When I’m Gone’ and ‘Looking for a Story’ will bring his audience to tears, balanced by the humour of songs such as ‘When My Horse Came In’ and ‘Simpson Desert’. Never one to shy away from controversy or issues he’s passionate about, ‘Pigs on the River’ will be applauded. ‘Buddy and Slim’ pays tribute to the industry’s founders. It’s no wonder he is one of the most sought-after live performers in Australia.
There is no other performer who stirs the Aussie spirit as he does. From his roots as a man of the land, he makes people feel proud to be Australian and rightly deserves to be seen as a living legend; an Australian icon. His audiences now regularly span four generations.
We are extremely proud and excited to announce that John Williamson will be performing at The Quindanning Hotel on Sunday September 30, 2018. Doors open at 11.30am for a 1.00pm start. Grab yourself some friends, and come and have lunch with John Williamson!!
