Since ‘Old Man Emu’ became an instant No 1 hit in 1970, John Williamson’s songs have been synonymous with Australia. In True Blue the Aussie Balladeer takes us on a tour of the Australia he knows and loves, capturing the colour and the contrast of this mighty land. His song lyrics come alive as he tells the stories behind them, of the people and places that provides his inspiration. Whether he’s singing about rural life, people he’s met, places he’s been, the beauties of the bush or the grandeur of the desert, this modern-day Banjo Paterson instils in his songs the spirit of Australia. Join the bush balladeer for a yarn and a song. John Williamson speaks to us all, about our past, our hopes, our aspirations, about who we are and who we could be, in celebration of what it means to be true blue.
