Enjoy a night of ballads and yarns with Jason and Chloe Roweth
A dedicated Henry Lawson Show!

Millthorpe musicians, the Roweths have been researching and presenting the living tradition of Australian music for over thirty years.

The power and pathos in Henry Lawson’s writing still resonates strongly with readers today. The Roweths invite you to join them in savouring this extraordinary man’s work.

Some poems are sung, with arrangements by the duo, and Chris Kempster among others, others are recited with the sensitive musical accompaniment the Roweths have pioneered in recent years. This concert includes original musical settings, and evocative use of dance music from Lawson’s (and the Roweths’) home country.

“And when beautiful night hid the shocking
black shame of the day that was past, I felt the
Great Universe rocking with the
truth that was coming at last.”

– Henry Lawson
from The Soul Of A Poet (1905)

“Jason and Chloe Roweth are without question two of our finest interpreters of Australian traditional folk music.” – Ruth Hazleton
