Sun 18 Jun @ 4:00 pm
Eric Bogle with Pete Titchener and Emma Luker back at Trinity Sessions with a solo set from Ami Williamson to open the concert. This will sell out.
Set 1 will be Ami performing her original solo show. Set 2 will be Eric Bogle with Pete Titchener and Emma Luker.
Eric Bogle is an Australian institution: a Member of the Order of Australia, 2001 Australian Humanist of the Year and a UN Peace Medal recipient, Eric also sings songs.
For forty years Eric has toured the world with his music, inflicting his songs on innocent bystanders from outback Australia to the streets of Edinburgh, New York and many places in-between.
Eric has recorded seventeen studio albums and eight live albums in his long and outstanding career. He’s perhaps best known for his anti-war songs: The Band Played Waltzing Matilda – his tribute to the ANZACs of Gallipoli (“One of the world’s greatest songs“– Pete Seeger) – and No Man’s Land (aka The Green Fields of France – name-checked by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair as his favourite anti-war poem), but he has also written some of the funniest songs you’ll ever hear.
A number of Eric’s songs have become international classics and recorded by Joan Baez, The Fureys, Mary Black, Donovan, Slim Dusty, June Tabor, The Corries, John Williamson, Billy Bragg, The Pogues and many others.
“Forceful, funny, powerful and poetic, Ami Williamson is a Folk Singer/Songwriter like none other! I cried, I laughed, then both at the same time; a one woman show at its best!” – (The Sydney Morning Herald).
“Ami Williamson is a lot better than any singer has a right to be” – (The Australian).
“Ami Williamson is my favourite Australian act!” – (International Folk Icon, Judy Collins).
Ex-Opera Australia Singer; Ami Williamson has earned herself an enviable reputation as one of Australia’s leading Folk Singer/Songwriters. Ami is the daughter of Australian music icon, True Blue John Williamson.
