ABOUT THE 'BANJO & HENRY' SHOW...
"Doing this show is very close to our hearts as being songwriters
of Australian stories ourselves we understand and appreciate the importance
of history that is preserved through bush ballad songs and bush stories.
We enjoy presenting a show such as 'Banjo & Henry' because we
feel we are helping to keep alive the Australian history and characters
of the days and times that 'Banjo & Henry' captured in their lines
for future generations to appreciate."
"We recorded an album of 'Banjo & Henry' songs/poems a few
years back that we had been singing on our shows over the years, and
the response was so positive we decided to put the show together.
The "Banjo & Henry" Show is one we do every year at
the Tamworth Country Music Festival at the 'Balladeers Homestead'
to much acclaim.
One can really not get any more authentic Australian stories and poems
than those written by the pens of Banjo Paterson & Henry Lawson".
