Legendary entertainer Barry Crocker, propels the radio play into the 21st century with, Banjo

A play which both entertains and educates the listener on the life, poetry and songwriting of Andrew Barton (Banjo) Paterson.

Banjo Paterson is famous for poem including The Man from Snowy River, Clancy of the Overflow, and A Bush Christening, and the song Waltzing Matilda.

Devised, written, and performed by Crocker, this wry and sentimental radio play explores various “chapters” in the life of Andrew Barton (Banjo) Paterson. It is told in flashback as the elderly Paterson, not long before his death in 1941, addresses the students at Sydney Grammar.

With Crocker voicing the titular role, Jack Thompson narrating, and Michael Caton voicing Henry Lawson (supported by Nick Jasprizza, Gerard McGuire & Martine Williams as miscellaneous voices), this is an audio experience not to be missed!
