Poetry and Bush Music
Bush poetry is Australian, has rhyme, rhythm & metre.
It’s written about Australia and Australians through an Australian’s eyes.
A fair-dinkum way of keeping our heritage alive.
Bush Poetry at the MFSR Bush Festival features:
- 2015 AUSTRALIAN BUSH POETRY CHAMPIONSHIPS
- Banjo’s Block/Youth Hall on Strzlecki Way is the Poetry and Bush Music base camp at the festival. There will be Bush Poets, singers, musicians and entertainers in the street, on the stage and around the campfire (including Geoffrey Graham).
Let history, poetry and music surround you at ‘Banjo’s Block’ for four days of ridgy-didge poetry recitals, a billy on the boil and a taste of real Aussie BushCulture.
- Bush Poets’ Breakfasts are held in the mornings, hosted by Graeme Johnson and Matt Hollis where novices and professionals are welcome to ‘Perform with a Legend’. Theme concerts and walk-up spots provide great fun or bring an instrument and join in informal jams around the campfire all weekend.
