Eric Bogle with Ami Williamson – Fringe Concert
Eric Bogle, son of Laurence, and Ami Williamson, daughter of John, are well known and respected songwriters and performers in Australia and overseas come together in a series of three concerts with a full band. Eric continues to write songs that cut to the heart of the matter and performs all over the world, engaging audiences with self-deprecating wit and a commonsense view of the world. Eric has written some songs that have pretty much become Australian classics of their particular genre. Probably his best known song is “The Band Played Waltzing Matilda”, and some of his other songs , “No Man’s Land”(The Green Fields of France) “Leaving Nancy”, “Now I’m Easy” “Shelter” “If Wishes were Fishes” etc. etc. are now beginning to rival “Matilda” in the icon stakes. His songs have been recorded by Joan Baez, Mary Black, Donovan, Slim Dusty, John Williamson, Billy Bragg, The Pogues and The Furies, just to name a few.
Ami Williamson is an alt-folksinger like no other; she entertains audiences with poise, personality and passion. Ami’s experience as a performer has extended far and wide since her graduation from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. She’s not just a talented singer and songwriter, her incredible talents also extend to playing the piano, drums and dulcimer. Judy Collins says “she is a genius”.
