Melbourne singer/songwriter and poet Ian Bland has gained a loyal following over the past decade for ‘Bland on Bland’, a weekly segment on 3RRR’s ‘The JVG Radio Method’, penning and presenting a poem every Sunday afternoon.
Musically, he has performed with fiddle/mandolin player Greg Hunt for more than twenty years, as a duo and with The Lamington Drive Orchestra, blending a diverse range of musical influences with insightful stories drawn from rural and urban Australia and beyond; topics as diverse as drought and the demise of suburban pubs.
“Bland’s gnarled, world weary voice is unaffected, emotive and genuine, a true voice of Australia. He’s Jack Thompson in ‘Sunday Too Far Away’ and Bill Hunter in ‘Newsfront’; he is also essential listening.”
