He's been called many things in his short life, such as the 'Gentleman of the Bush' , 'The kid from Bourke', 'Young William' and a few profanities. William is most at home when close to a river and surrounded by the plants and animals that bring life to this country. William sings about the stuff of life - of love gone wrong (and right), living on the road, and working in the sun, he does this with both his original works and through the words of others. For William, folk songs are the perfect coupling of his twin loves of history and story-telling. If heart touching (breaking) tales from the Appalachian mountains interest you, or the stories told through early Australian and American country music inspire you, then perhaps William Alexander is your man.
Joining William on the stage both to perform solo and to accompany Mr Alexander will be the fiddle playin' banjo pickin' gentleman from North Carolina, Jeremy Marcotte.
Show begins at 8pm
