The Soul of A Poet

The Songs and Poems of Henry Lawson
Chloë & Jason Roweth, with special guest Matt Nightingale on double bass, explore the work of 'The People’s Poet', Henry Lawson (1867-1922), revealing him as a flawed genius, a creative artist, a revolutionary and a humanist. Their show features their own original musical settings, and evocative use of dance music from Lawson’s (and the Roweths') home country, central-west NSW, as accompaniment to recitations of Lawson's poetry. "His writing left us smiling at its ­beauty, hurting with its pain, stunned at the degree of empathy he could generate inside us, and warmed by the bush humour – so wonderfully dry, sharp and subtle.” - Jason Roweth

"This is one of those rare shows that you want to go on forever – and when you leave, you realise it does anyway. Utterly unforgettable.” - Kim Kelly, Writer
"Chloë and Jason Roweth's new album, ‘The Soul of a Poet’, is an exquisite reimagining of some of Henry Lawson’s sharpest and most soulful words. Australian bush music as you’ve never heard it before – truly, do yourself a favour.” - Kim Kelly, Writer
