THE BUSHWAKERS Concert / Dance
+ Special Guest Pat Drummond
The Bushwackers are delighted to be performing at Katoomba RSL Club on Saturday February 16th joined by special guest legendary Blue Mountains singer/songwriter Pat Drummond.
The evening is billed as a concert / dance which means that The Bushwackers will be calling a number of Bushdances throughout the evening as well as playing all their great songs from their last 42 years of performing around Australia.
They will be launching their newest album ‘Australian Songbook 3’ on the night as well.
Freshly returned from sell out shows in Tamworth this evening in Katoomba is shaping up as a night not to be missed!
The Bushwackers are well known to generations of audiences for their Australian classic bush songs, their great original music, wild Celtic instrumentals and their Bushdances.
They have been a fixture on the Australian entertainment landscape for over 40 years and have performed at hundreds of Festivals, pubs, clubs, Town Halls, Civic events and backyard barbies all over the land.
The Bushwackers have released 22 albums, five books of music, have won countless awards and accolades including two Gold records and three Golden Guitars at Tamworth. The Bushwackers remain the ultimate exponents of the Australian folk/bush tradition, playing their songs in a contemporary and engaging way with humour, zest and world class musicianship.
Fiddles, accordions, guitars, bass, drums and the mighty lagerphone are coming to Katoomba RSL on February 16th. It will be a night to savour for months to come.
Pat Drummond is an Australian Singer / Songwriter. His highly original music crosses the genres of country, folk and rock ‘n’ roll and his musical career spans over three decades. Based at Leura in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, his style is a cross between songwriting and journalism. His well-documented songs about real people and places are drawn from interviews gathered on his erratic tours across Australia and present a composite picture of that country and her people.
Former member of the Bushwackers, Pat’s amazing three and a half decade long career has seen him pass through a half dozen ‘reincarnations’ that have produced an incredible body of original work in as many different musical genres.
