From Mount Isa to Carnegie Hall (where he appears on Barack Obama's Inauguration Day), the story of William Barton has been sketched in wonderment and near-disbelief: how could this young man, barely 26 years old, have risen so far so quickly? Taking his didgeridoo to the concert stages of the world, William is equally at home in AC/DC tributes playing his Gibson SG electric guitar. Surrounded by computers and digital gadgetry, he moves effortlessly between the ancient sound-world of his forebears to the contemporary.
This performance will be the opening event of the National Multicultural Festival. Together with his singer-mother Delmae, William appears at the NFSA playing a gamut of music for solo didgeridoo to his own hip-hop creations. In between, William introduces 'Kalkadoon Man', Brendan Fletcher's 2005 film about this singular life-journey.
