Three concerts in Sth East Queensland area with the renowned Jan ‘Yarn’ Wositzky – booking links under each one below!
For the first time in many years, storyteller, singer and musician Jan ‘Yarn’ Wositzky (you may remember him from The Bushwackers) will be visiting southern Queensland. He will be performing his renowned brand of solo shows, where every song turns into a story about smuggling taipans or an Indigenous dance, and the stories all segue into characters like WE (Bill) Harney, all laced with music on banjo, harmonica, bones spoons and bodhran.
The show is peppered with Jan’s anecdotes of getting into places like Kerry Packer’s house (but was Kerry home?), and moves on to theTurkish poetry of Gallipoli, with special material from Queenslanders such as Don Henderson as well as original and traditional Australian songs. This work is all culled from a lifetime of travelling, listening and hanging out in interesting places – such as Uluru for the 1985 handback – and much more. All strung together by a performer who just loves to entertain people. In all, it’s probably not worth missing.
