The Golden Guitar-winning Bushwackers are
Australia’s best-known, best-loved bush band and THEY'RE COMING TO MARRICKVILLE TO PLAY A GIG FOR LOCK THE GATE!
Their Bushdances in the late 70’s and 80’s had thousands of people doing the Heel and Toe and Strip the Willow and there’s scarcely a school kid who didn’t learn a bit of bushdancing to the music of The Bushwackers.
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 has seen the band perform at festivals in Tamworth, Port Fairy, Canberra, Mackay, Port Arlington, Dorrigo, Brisbane and many other places in the last 20 years.
