Larrikins dish up some Aussie humour
Thursday, 21st January, 2016
The humour of Australia will come to life with songs, stories and yarns on Sunday.
Me ‘n Me Mates brings to life the unique language and humour of Australia with songs, stories and yarns providing a lively, humorous and entertaining look at Australia and its characters and roots.
Overseas visitors in the audience have commented that this show is the only uniquely Australian experience they have seen in this country, apart from the outback scenery.
As well as looking to the past through the enduring and vital work of writers like Henry Lawson, Banjo Paterson and Slim Dusty, Me ‘n Me Mates includes contemporary and original material, characters and reinterprets traditional songs with energetic playing and singing.
Me ‘n Me Mates sing about at all the important things like the weather, dogs, shearing, hats, nick-names, drinking and traveling.
They have toured extensively over the past few years including a trip on the Ghan to the Northern Territory.
They regularly perform at pubs, beer gardens, libraries, town halls, agricultural shows and bus shelters all over SA, Victoria and NSW.
The trio entertain with songs, poems, yarns and anecdotes told with the laconic, wry larrikin humour of the Aussie bloke in the Dinky-Di tradition of the wool shed entertainment.
Their appeal is an easy charm and a casual cheerfulness, they perform in such an entertaining, natural and refreshing way.
They will be appearing at the Old Royal Tavern on Sunday, head down to hear them play.
