Event Information

The Redgum Years

John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew

John Schumann – singer-songwriter and the unmistakable voice of the legendary Australian folk-rock band Redgum – takes to the stage with his international class, 6-piece band, the Vagabond Crew.

“Initially I wasn’t really keen but it was the Vagabond Crew who persuaded me to revisit the Redgum repertoire. It was their idea to call it “The Redgum Years”, to play 20 or so of Redgum’s most popular and enduring songs and, importantly, to tell the stories.”

“We put up a couple of social media posts and the demand was pretty well instantaneous. Lots of people – I mean, lots and lots of people – flew in from interstate for those first Adelaide shows back in 2021. I guess I didn’t appreciate just how much those songs still mean to hundreds of thousands of Australians.”

“For me, playing these songs is like getting back in touch with much-loved, much-missed family members after decades apart.”

“The musicianship, unity and heart of the Vagabond Crew supporting Schumann’s showmanship and storytelling made for a magic show.” (The Pineapple)
