The Man They Call The Banjo

The National Vietnam Veterans Museum is proud to present two performances of The Man They Call The Banjo on Saturday, 26 August at 2.00pm and 7.00pm.

“Love. Politics. Mystery.” Experience the atmosphere of the Museum and see the musical that tells The Great Australian Love Story - the secret affair between Banjo Paterson and Christina Macpherson as they wrote the classic Australian song Waltzing Matilda, based on the book, Waltzing Matilda - The Secret Story of Australia’s Favourite Song by Dennis O’Keeffe.

Set during the shearer’s strike of 1894, The Man They Call The Banjo captures the angst between the shearers and the squatters, the forbidden romance, the love triangle and the mystery surrounding the death of Australia’s most famous character - The Jolly Swagman.
