On the Road Again

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 
11 August 2019
Author / Presenters: 
Em Burgess-Gilchrist, Stuart Coupe, Don Walker

In the words of music writer Stuart Coupe, the rock’n’roll road tour is hyped-up adrenalin surging bursts of activity. It’s extreme highs and hard comedowns. And the personal costs can be great. Stuart and performer Don Walker talk to Em Burgess-Gilchrist about music on the move, their finest and not-so-great memories, the difference between live and studio sound, and how the audiences have evolved since the first amp was loaded onto the back of a truck.
