One of Australia’s best-loved musicians, John Williamson's impressive career spans more than 40 years. His unofficial anthems, tributes to legends and unsung heroes and tender ballads have captured the spirit of the nation in song unlike any other. He has been inducted into the prestigious ARIA Hall of Fame, secured 3 ARIA Awards, 24 Golden Guitars, Platinum and Gold albums and over 4 million album sales. In 2012, Williamson released his first all-original album in almost four years, The Big Red. He will perform a concert atop ‘Big Red’ itself on 8 July 2013 as part of the Big Red Run: www.johnwilliamson.com.au
The charity concert is free for runners and supporters of Big Red Run, and also for Birdsville locals.
We welcome all others to attend this unique and memorable concert.
