Gregory North

Discovered wandering in the Blue Mountains, this man of many hats will have you wondering which voice is really his. Known for his rendition of ‘The Man From Snowy River’ in 15 different accents and his adventures with sticky tape, the voices and characters in his poems and yarns could be the result of medical experimentation or maybe he’s just a freak of nature. Whichever it is, this three-time Australian bush poetry champion brings his many characters to life whenever he performs. His quirky humour and bent for accents make him unique among bush verse entertainers. His powerful Bush Laureate Award-winning poem Frackin’ Fricker, an irreverent comment on coal seam gas mining, received a standing ovation at the awards concert in the conservative New England town of Tamworth – high praise indeed!
