Bush poetry with Ron Brown

Ron BrownFounding member of the Hunter Bush Poets and Islington resident, Ron Brown, will be our special guest at the next meeting of the Islington Village Community Group on Wednesday 6 April 2011 at Islington Public School.

Bush poetry draws from the traditions of the late 1800s, when the Australian Colony was beginning to develop a sense of awareness and acknowledgment of an Australian identity. Stories and poems were memorised and shared in the pub, around the camp fire and in the drawing room.

Ron will share some of his poems with the group between 6-8 pm, a light supper will be served following the performance, and there’ll still be time for Islington Village news updates. We hope to see you there.
