Australia at War - John Schumann and the Vagabond
John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew’s
Facebook Live streamed concert, Anzac Eve – 8pm CST/8.30pm EST
“Australians of all ages and from all walks of life are familiar with John Schumann’s song, “I Was Only 19”. “John Schumann is a one-off – the artist/intellectual with the unerring popular touch and a campfire voice. He belongs to an Australian tradition of yarn spinners and song-makers. To the familiar Australian and treasured front bar ‘wisdom’ and the paddock fence stoicism, he adds a depth of feeling and an acuity of perception that go beyond the bounds of ‘folk’ and ‘popular’ and are the attributes of the true, creative artist.”
Professor Brian Matthews
John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew are to “live stream” a national concert performance of “Australia at War” from Adelaide on Anzac Eve, April 24, 2020.
