John Dengate Australian Son - Cobargo Folk Festival, February 2014









      JOHN DENGATE – AUSTRALIAN SON
This memorial concert will feature reminiscences and songs of our popular, but lately departed National Treasure, John Dengate. John’s charismatic personality and unique works will be brought to life by his wife Dale, friends Chris Woodland, Seamus Gill, Bob Hart, poet Vic Jefferies, Jane Scott and members of the Bush Music Club - celebrating their 60th anniversary this year - of which John was a Life Member.


The concert included a slideshow of images taken from BMC archives & Sandra Nixon collection
