Bush Poets at The Foghorn Featuring Greg North
April 7, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm$30
Poets Lunch as a featured event as part of the Newcastle Writers Festival.
This is special event to celebrate the Spoken Word and the special skill to take the words from the page to the stage.
The tradition of Australian Bush Poetry is grounded in the very strong conection our pioneers had to the spoken word due to their lack of education. Many could not read or write and therefore relied on their ability to memorise and even compose poetry without writing it down.
Gregory North has a passion for performing. As a writer and performer of Australian Bush Poetry and yarns (tall stories) he loves to entertain.
Since his first performance in 2003 Greg has gone on to become the male Bush Poetry Champion of Australia in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and is now a regular at Winton’s Matilda Country Tourist Park and North Gregory Hotel (not really named for him) as well as many other bush poetry events. Greg’s quirky humour and love for entertaining are apparent whenever he takes the stage. He also has a wonderful gift for accents, which makes him unique among bush verse entertainers.
