The Show is an evening of original contemporary Australian poetry and music provided by the renowned Storyteller, Frank Povah.

Frank has travelled and performed widely throughout Australia and New Zealand, Canada, and  the USA. Described as a “talented instrumentalist”, he plays guitar, autoharp, ukulele, Appalachian dulcimer and banjo. With his long-time friend Chris Cruise, in the mid-1960s he formed one of the first two jug bands in Australia.

One reviewer noted that “a performance by Povah combines a captivating musical experience along with a lesson in social history you don’t know you’re having”. Another wrote “…he sings and plays blues with an Australian accent, in a voice like gumleaf smoke on gravel”.

A concert might include traditional blues, music from Appalachia, Australian tunes, songs learned as a child, along with a grab-bag of tunes picked up, shaken and recycled during a his years as a nomadic performer – the whole peppered with anecdotes…. and usually poetry.
