FEW artists have ex­pe­ri­enced a ca­reer as long and il­lus­tri­ous as John Wil­liamson.

Aus­tralia has en­joyed his mu­sic for more than 44 years and look­ing at his al­bum and songs, you can easily see why.

Through­out his per­form­ing years, Wil­liamson has re­sisted of­fers to take his mu­sic to the in­ter­na­tional stage, in­stead pre­fer­ring to stay true to his pas­sion: Aus­tralia.

He has won a swag of ac­co­lades in­clud­ing three ARIA awards, 24 Golden Guitar Awards and nu­mer­ous gold and plat­inum records.

This year Wil­liamson is back and head­ing out west to celebrate his long-awaited 50th al­bum, Hon­est Peo­ple. His tour will show­case new songs from the al­bum, in­clud­ing Heat­wave, Girt by Sea, Clouds over Tam­worth, Keep Walk­ing, and Kings and Queens.

Wil­liamson will also be per­form­ing many of his old favourite songs that cap­ture the essence of ev­ery­day Aus­tralians.

John Wil­liamson is with­out ques­tion, an Aus­tralian icon. His voice and sound have be­come recog­nis­able to all of us. He’s per­formed at some of Aus­tralia’s most his­toric and na­tion-stop­ping events, and to bat­tlers across the coun­try. His songs and mu­sic are sim­ply for ev­ery­one. A rare op­por­tu­nity, this event is not to be missed.

Wil­liamson is set to ap­pear at Rooty Hill RSL next Satur­day, Septem­ber 12, with his show start­ing at 8pm.

Adult tick­ets are $44 and chil­dren un­der 14 are $33. To pur­chase tick­ets go to to­tal­coun­try.com.au.
