@ Newtown

Glenn Skuthorpe is playing tonight at the venue formally known as the Newtown RSL. Never heard of him and can't go but I wish I could.
A gifted songwriter and compelling storyteller, Glenn Skuthorpe crosses the folk/country borders with his take on contemporary Indigenous Australia. His songs are a travelogue which takes you from the small towns to the city streets and along the endless road that joins them; his gritty realism and edgy characters reflecting the indigenous experience, but also those universal themes of love and loss, of betrayal and renewal.
