Taken at Government House in Sydney's Botanic Gardens, these photographs surround a concert given by William Barton under the aegis of the Historic Houses Trust. With unbelievable inner resolve, I managed to still my trigger finger during the concert itself. Why is this incongrous?
Government House is of the establishment; William Barton is an indigenous Australian who is probably the foremost exponent of the didgeredoo in our country today. I felt goose-bumps up my spine as I watched him perform into these microphones under the watchful eye of King George V of England and her colonies.
Ooo ... how I wish I were one of those rudies who just flashes away with the hide of a rhino!
