Eric Bogle is a Scottish-born Australian folk singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Scotland, he immigrated to Australia at the age of 25, to settle near Adelaide, South Australia. Internationally known and respected, Bogle has been touring the world with his music for nearly 40 years, from outback Australia to the streets of New York and many places in between.
Bogle's songs have covered a variety of topics and have been performed by many artists. Two of his best known songs are ‘No Man's Land’ and ‘And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda’, with the latter named one of the APRA Top 30 Australian songs in 2001, as part of the celebrations for the Australasian Performing Right Association's 75th anniversary. The song is a haunting evocation of the ANZAC experience fighting in the Battle of Gallipoli and has also been interpreted as a reaction to the Vietnam War.
Bogle has played twice in Gore over the years and was scheduled to perform here in 2001 but due to Covid restrictions the tour was postponed twice. He is touring New Zealand for possibly the last time, with long time musical collaborators Pete Titchener (guitar) and Emma Luker (violin). Don't miss the opportunity to see this legendary songwriter in concert!
