David Rovics & Alistair Hulett are among the best left-wing songwriters in the world today. They will be putting on a very special concert for Green Left Weekly in Sydney on Thurs 18 December as part of their month-long summer tour of Australia.

It is simply "a fact" according to the British Rock'n'Reel that Alistair Hulett is "responsible for some of the most stunning, impressive contemporary folk songs ever written". And you can't do better than to follow the advice of Pete Seeger which is "listen to David Rovics"!

You have the chance to hear both artists - along with Perry Keyes (and that is a treat in itself!) - on Thursday 18th. Don't miss out!! Phone now on 9690 1977 or 0413 976 638 to register your interest, or simply turn up at the door (just be early to avoid missing out on a spot!).
