A True-Blue treat in store for audience

Sound Telegraph

One of Australia’s best-loved musical icons will have fans swooning when he performs at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on Friday, October 14, at 8pm.

John Williamson will deliver an unforgettable live concert experience blending humour, romance and campfire stories through his music.

With a career spanning more than 40 years, he is firmly cemented into the fabric and culture of Australia, with unofficial anthems, tributes to legends and unsung heroes, and tender ballads that have captured the spirit of the nation like no other.

Born in the Victorian mallee at Quambatook into a musical family with four younger brothers, his mother and father sang in local productions including Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. The first song Williamson wrote, Old Man Emu, was released as a single in 1970 and won the first of many gold awards for the singer, also marking the beginning of an illustrious career.

Williamson has been inducted into the prestigious ARIA Hall of Fame, secured three ARIA Awards, 25 Golden Guitars, MO Awards, APRA Awards, platinum and gold albums and more than four million album sales.

You can call him what you want — Mallee Boy, True Blue or just plain Fair Dinkum, but there is no denying seeing Williamson play live will leave a lasting impression.
