Greg North is special guest at poets’ gathering

Local talent and visitors made the September gathering of the Gosford Bush Poets a memorable night.

“We had a virtual plethora of local talent reading, reciting and presenting a wonderful assortment of original and traditional poetry, song and verse,” said Gosford Bush Poets spokesperson, Mr Vic Jeffries. Queensland poet, Long John Best and his wife Glenny paid a visit on their travels south.

“John, who is one of this country’s most accomplished bush poets, entertained us all in his inimitable style with some great original poetry,” Mr Jeffries said.

“During the night we heard from: Jack Woodward; Chris Kessey; Richard Smith; Tom Roberts; Kevin Gee; Norman Allen; Peter Mace; Jan Lock; Chris Shaw; Chris Drinan; Kathy Smithson; Marie Wellard; Bob Wellard; Ellen Hingston and Nick Lock.”

Special guest for the next Gosford Bush Poets gathering on Wednesday, October 28 will be Mr Greg North, described as the man of a hundred accents.

“Greg is without doubt one of the most talented presenters of bush poetry in Australia and I really do suggest that you make sure to be at the Gosford Hotel at 7pm on the last Wednesday of this month for one of the best nights you will have this year,” he said.
