|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 7:30 pm on day Second of the month, repeating until December 14, 2018


Duke’s place, named after our honoured early member Harold ‘Duke’ Tritton (1886-1965), is the place to go once a month for a great night of Australian songs in concert and session. Duke was a powerful singer who supplied BMC with many songs he had learnt in his younger days while working as a shearer and at other bush jobs. He was also a songwriter and poet giving us songs that have entered the tradition such as Sandy Hollow Line and Shearing in the Bar.

from the Editorial in Singabout 1(1) Feb 1956
aims of the Bush Music Club – to popularise Australian folk song and to encourage the composition of a new kind of song – one that is traditional in style but contemporary in theme.
