Benny Fowler and George Bishop

8pm, $10


Benny Fowler

The coconut wireless has relayed the message that Benny Fowler has just returned to his mother country Australia. After a year of village living in remote Solomon Islands this musical excursionist will be importing some new material for Australian audiences. Fingers crossed that the islander grit found in Benny’s rice bag swag of the fresh musical produce clears customs. 

Benny’s recent immersion in islander flavours fuse with the reggae and African roots of his past musical projects to create hypnotic soundscapes underpinned by painfully catchy melodies. Add to this the beautifully poignant lyrics that Benny has become known for and you can’t help but expect something special.

Benny has had the honour of playing at a number of acclaimed festivals, venues and events. These include Woodford, the National Folk Festival, Peak Festival, Corinbank, the Dreaming Festival, Summer Rhythm, Sydney Blues Festival, and Illawarra Folk Festival just to name a few.

George Bishop

George Bishop is a character and a half. Most people who meet him do not forget him or his smile. George has a charmed way of moving through the patterns of life. Nobody can be sure if he seeks adventure or whether the good times just find him.

George has seen a lot of the world and is blessed with the knack of transferring his experiences into music. His songs combine witty and astute lyrics that convey the humour, joy and heartache of life with beautifully phrased guitar parts. 

George has played his songs at countless festivals and events. Some of these include Woodford Folk Festival, Island Vibe, the National Folk Festival, Dragon Dreaming and Corinbank.
