Event Details

To ring out the old year and ring in the new, we present 12 new songs and 12 stories, one for each month. Twelve composers, each supported by a generous donor, have created with The Song Company a new musical almanac for Australia drawing on the words and works of one our most iconic public figures, Michael Leunig.

A wry observer of life, Leunig’s cartoons, stories, poems and drawings are never less than mirthprovoking. But as much as he is a superb humourist, first and foremost he is an observer, philosopher, commentator, historian of the absurd and catalyst for free thinking.

All stories and lyrics based on Leunig.

Music by Katy Abbott, Kate Neal, Lyle Chan, Alice Chance, Drew Crawford, Robert Davidson, Gareth Farr, Ruth McCall, Kate Moore, Lachlan Skipworth, Mark Viggiani and James Wade.
