Interview with Australian Music Icon - Shane Howard
After the (official) book launch of Australia's Birdwatching Megaspots at BLARNEY BOOKS & ART in Port Fairy, I took a few minutes to interview our very special guest Shane Howard, one of Australia's true music icons and passionate social and environmental advocate. Shane's band Goanna rose to international prominence in 1982 with their legendary song 'Solid Rock' from the incredible album 'Spirit of Place'.
Shane has had a long and illustrious career, with 3 albums with Goanna, prior to his 13 albums as a solo artist since the mid 1980s. He is constantly working, touring throughout Australia (as well as overseas) and writing great songs!
In this 15 minute chat Shane shares his passion for the country, its wildlife, the Aboriginal people who have lived here for some 60,000 years, and his home of Killarney, Victoria.
