John Williamson

Book for an event

John Williamson is, without question, an Australian Icon. His entertainment career spans more than fifty years, boasting sales of over 5 million albums. His unofficial anthems, funny and tender ballads and tributes to unsung heroes have captured the spirit of the nation in song more than any other performer. He remains one of the most in-demand live performers in Australia. His fiftieth album, Honest People, was released in 2104 at the same time as his autobiography, and in 2018 he released his fifty-first, Butcherbird. Two songs from his popular JW’s Family Album have been made into delightful, entertaining picture books for children.
