Scottish folk singer performs at Woy Woy
The Troubadour will present Scotland's Alistair Brown in a performance on Sunday, March 11, at the CWA Hall, Woy Woy.
Brown has been singing the old songs and new songs written by people who like the old songs, since he was 15 years old, according to Troubadour president Mr Michael Fine.
Alistair Brown began his career in the folk clubs of his native Scotland during the folk revival of the 1960s, he said.
"He honed his art in Canada, where he lived for many years and was active in many aspects of folk song and dance, as a recording artist, radio broadcaster, reviewer, dance teacher, university lecturer, and program director at folk music and dance camps.
"He continues to make regular appearances in North American folk clubs and festivals, performing solo, or with the Friends of Fiddler's Green, a band which celebrated its fortieth anniversary in 2011, without maturing in the slightest."
