Songs and stories at The J

Australian singer-songwriter Mike McClellan.

Master songwriters and brilliant storytellers, Eric Bogle and Mike McClellan will perform ‘Songs and Stories’ at The J Noosa on Saturday 28 September from 7.30pm.

They’ll bring you to tears and keep you in stitches in a joyous evening of music and stories accumulated over a lifetime of writing, touring and entertaining. Reflecting on 50 years of music making, they are funny, heart-felt, hilarious and deeply moving.

They have lived their lives through song. At least two of them, The Band Played Waltzing Matilda and Song And Dance Man, are genuine Australian classics. Both have been covered around the world. But their catalogues are rich with songs that continue to define who we are and what it means to be Australian.

For all the accolades that Eric’s brilliant anti-war songs have accumulated, it is his ability to see both the poignant and the funny side of life that makes him such an engaging performer. As one reviewer said, Bogle has “An uncanny ability to hit you on the head with wit and humour”.

And there are few singer-songwriters in Australia like Mike McClellan who can move you to tears and then rip off a blistering guitar instrumental with such consummate ease.

It is not the first time that these two iconic Australian songwriters have performed on the same stage but it is the first time they have toured together. It will be a concert to be long remembered.

Tickets are $62 for adults and $58 for concession which can be purchased from www.thej.com.au or call 5329 6560.
