Dave de Hugard
A National Treasure
Dave de Hugard in performance weaves a magic. He talks to the audience just as if it were a conversation in the lounge room over a couple of beers, and the response is always warm and appreciative.
Dave has been involved in bush music since the 1950s with several records to his credit and many performances as a soloist and with lineups like The Larrikins. His interest has led him into the field to collect from performers like Stan Treacy and Basil Cosgrove. He has a gift of interpreting their tunes in his own style, such that it gives them a new vitality.
A great supporter of the Bush Traditions Gathering, Dave presents songs, tunes and yarns aplenty.
