Dave Johnson

Dave Johnson is passionate about bush music- our “hidden heritage” of bush songs and dance tunes. Singing with guitar or unaccompanied, he presents a diversity of uniquely Australian material featuring the songs that reflect our history and tell the story of the people. His recent publication of Songs of Australia includes 320 such songs. Dave has proudly lead bands in concerts, bush dances and balls. As an organiser he inspires others through events and workshops, dances and concerts at the National and other folk festivals. He lives at Penrose with two Australorp hens, four quail, his beloved wife, Anne, and an old Alston windmill and a grey Fergie tractor.
