The Beggars Australian Songbook

Sun 18 April at 2:00 pm

A musical tribute to great Australian songs and artists including The Seekers, Peter Dawson, Johnny O’Keefe, Lucky Starr, Chad Morgan, Slim Dusty, and The Beggars. You can heave away and haul your way round Cape Horn Bound for South Australia or sail the Southern Ocean hunting The Whale, go Waltzing Matilda down to the billabong and find out what really happened to that jolly swagman, do your noble duty at Suvla Bay in the Great War, go back home on the Road to Gundagai, and be a guest at the at the Fatal Wedding. The Beggars round out this musical journey with the tongue twisting I’ve Been Everywhere as we all sing-along with the songs from our Australian Songbook.
The Beggars are three brilliant singer / songwriters with a crystal clear Australian sound. Their versions of I’ve Been Everywhere, Kangaroo and The Whale from the 2011 Australian Songbook CD frequently appear on the iTunes world music charts. The Banjo Song from the 2009 Desert Flower CD was number 1 # on the European country music association charts in Jan 2010.
