I Don’t Go Shearing Now – A themed musical salute to shearing and the wool industry (and a great opportunity to salute the songs and folklore). Devised and written by internationally-renowned folk singer Martyn Wyndham-Read, the show uses readings combined with old and new songs, recitations, bush tunes and humour. Listeners are transported back to the noisy days of hand-shearing and early machine-shearing where the yell of “Rouseabout – Tar Here!” and “Wool away!” resound once again. The songs include classic works from Henry Lawson like ‘The Shearer’s Dream’ and ‘Past Carin’’, several anonymous songs much- loved by yesterday’s shearers, and a couple of recent compositions of Martyn’s.
