Eric Bogle is probably best known for his now iconic song The Band Played Waltzing Matilda, but he is far from being a one-hit wonder. His songs have been recorded by Joan Baez, MaryBlack, Donovan, Slim Dusty, John Williamson, Billy Bragg, The Pogues and The Furies, just to name a few.

With 14 albums to his credit, appearances at every Folk and Country Music Festival in Australia and overseas and a touring schedule that has included eight tours of America, 10 times around Europe and multiple Australian shows, Eric Bogle has decided that it is time to take it easy.

Although he has now decided to stop touring overseas, Eric is still doing the occasional concert/festival in Australia as the spirit moves him, which he hopes to keep doing until someone switches off the lights, which he further hopes will be around 2045AD. Country Music Capital News correspondent Jon Wolfe said recently, “I recommend that if you haven’t seen him live, put it on your to-do list and immerse yourself in the majesty of Eric Bogle and his music”.
