The Bushwackers are Australia’s best-known, best-loved bush band. In 2017 The Bushwackers are celebrating their 46 years of performance. There’s been 95 members, 24 studio albums, four books, tours, awards and enough stories to fill a dozen books.
Proudly Australian, the music is mostly based on the traditional folk and working songs from the early 20th century, which the group has seamlessly incorporated with celtic instrumentals and great contemporary original songs like Leave It In The Ground, Another trip To Bunnings, Dirt Under My Nails, Beneath The Southern Cross, Henry’s Men and the iconic I Am Australian.
The Bushwackers are led by the mighty Lagerphone of Dobe Newton and he’s joined onstage with a great team of musicians wielding fiddles, accordions, mandolins, guitars, bass, and drums. It’s a magic combination that thrills enthusiastic old and newer fans who dance, sing and enjoy this unique Australian iconic band.
