September 20th, 2015

Episode 1973 of 3777 episodes

We meet Australian song-writing legend Shane Howard, the founding member and former lead singer of the group Goanna whose 1982 land-rights anthem 'Solid Rock' has become an Australian classic. Over 13 albums including his latest ‘Deeper South’, Shane’s solo career has combined a Celtic imagination with a deep reverence for indigenous spirituality, exploring what historian Manning Clark has called ‘the spirit of place in Australia’.
