Australian folk singer song writer Ami Williamson hits the Adelaide Fringe this weekend, bringing her unique talents and a fine musical heritage when she performs with Eric Bogle in A Night With Eric and Ami.

The daughter of legendary country music icon John Williamson, Ami’s grandparents were also classical singers and who performed duets for ABC Radio in the 1930-60s.

Williamson describes her upcoming three shows with Eric Bogle in Adelaide as being “on her bucket list”.


ami-williamsonThe show sees Ami and Eric perform separately and together, as Eric “passes the folk baton” to Ami. Also a multi-instrumentalist, Ami typically plays a ‘One Woman Show’, so the departure to perform with Eric Bogle is a unique opportunity.

“Since childhood, Eric Bogle’s music has been as much apart of my consciousness as dad’s,” Ami said. “Eric is a master songwriter, his songs stand alone like landmarks.”

In addition to being a performer, Eric has written classic Australian songs that have been recorded by the likes of Joan Baez, Mary Black, Slim Dusty, John Williamson and Billy Bragg.

Ami is a regular at Folk Festivals across Australia and internationally including The Port Fairy Folk Festival, The Brunswick Music Festival, The Woodford Folk Festival and The National Folk Festival.

A Night with Eric and Ami is part of The Trinity Sessions’ on February 24, 25 and 26 at the Church of the Trinity, Goodwood Rd.
