THE BEGGARS – Australian Songbook
November 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:45 pm
The Beggars Australian Songbook – Celebrating SENIORS WEEK 2018
Presented by Arts Margaret River
Join us for a night of wonderful music, dancing, socializing and nostalgia.
A musical tribute to great Australian songs and artists including The Seekers, Peter Dawson, Johnny O’Keefe, Lucky Starr, Chad Morgan, Slim Dusty, and The Beggars. You can heave away and haul your way round Cape Horn Bound for South Australia or sail the Southern Ocean hunting The Whale, go Waltzing Matilda down to the billabong and find out what really happened to that jolly swagman, do your noble duty at Suvla Bay in the Great War, go back home on the Road to Gundagai, and be a guest at the Fatal Wedding. The Beggars round out this musical journey with the tongue twisting I’ve Been Everywhere as we all sing-along with the songs from our Australian Songbook.
“The best Australian vocal band since The Seekers.” – Normie Rowe
“So good was the experience overall I immediately booked this 4 piece band from Adelaide for a return season.” – Greg Hordacre, Director Drum Theatre Dandenong 2011
