Duke’s Place, Australian Songs in Concert & session with Derek Dowding – Singer, songwriter, agitator

June 14 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

A$10

A songwriter with a difference; Derek excels as a quirky wordsmith possessing an acute wit and an eye for the overtly absurd and unjust.

Irreverent. Ironic. Cognizant. Sardonic.

With a catalogue of 180+ original songs, Derek presents a novel selection ranging from satirical pieces crammed with cutting social commentary and off-beat humour as well as lilting tunes accompanying thoughtful, illustrative poetry.  $15 CD available –  “Home Brew”

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.
