April 2 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Bushwackers are performing at The Fitzroy Victoria Bowling and Sports Club on Saturday 2 April.
Tickets will also be available at the door, showtime is 7pm.

Triple Golden Guitar Winners and 2021 Roll Of Renown Inductees, The Bushwackers, are currently celebrating the major milestone of 51 years of performance. The band has just completed a series of capacity shows at The 2022 Port Fairy Folk Festival, following on from 2021 where they performed a medley to close the 2021 Golden Guitar Awards, were inducted into The 2021 Roll Of Renown, played at the Way Out West Festival in Winton N.Q. and had a sold out tour of regional Victoria before Covid closed down their performances for the year.

Although The Bushwackers are a household name, some ‘youngsters’ may not know entirely what The Bushwackers are renowned for. Their energetic live shows have had thousands of fans dancing in the aisles with legendary performances at the The Port Fairy Folk Festival, The National Folk Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival, The Gympie Music Muster, Woodford Folk Festival, The Americana Conference (Nashville) The National Celtic Festival and countless other events.

Dobe Newton and Roger Corbett bring their combined experience of over 90 years of playing in The Bushwackers with all the songs, stories, humour and history that kind of a journey entails.

The Bushwackers perform an exciting blend of Australian music featuring the Lagerphone of frontman Dobe Newton, Roger Corbett on guitars and the addition of fiddle, bass and drums rounding out the sound. The music is all-Australian with all the stories, humour and sense of history that has helped to forge our national identity.
