Ian Bland with Greg Hunt in the Winnebago Lounge

‘ALMOST TRUE’ An evening of storytelling in verse, prose and song with IAN BLAND with GREG HUNT…

Melbourne singer/ songwriter and poet Ian Bland has gained a loyal following as resident poet on 3RRR’s ‘The JVG Radio Method’.

He has spruiked his verse in concert halls, ballrooms, The National Gallery, coal-vaults, festivals at home and the UK, pubs, cemeteries – even the steps of Parliament.

“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.” Trevor J. Leedon

Musically, he has performed with fiddle/mandolin player Greg Hunt for more than twenty years, blending a diverse range of musical influences with insightful stories drawn from rural and urban Australia and beyond; from the poignant to the ridiculous with the odd cleansing murder ballad.
