About the Show

Acknowledged as one of Australia’s finest didgeridoo players, Mark Atkins is also recognised internationally for his collaborative projects with some of the world’s leading composers and musicians. His great passion, however, is to share his own stories about his country, the land and the people through the solo show “Mark Atkins, His Stories and His Music”.

A descendent of Western Australia’s Yamitji people, as well as of Irish/Australian heritage, Atkins draws on his rich and diverse background to offer an eclectic mix of original and new compositions featuring didgeridoo and guitar.

In the tradition of sitting down and having a yarn, this concert is a musical conversation between the instruments the audience and Mark, much of it improvised. The instruments and performer complement each other, speaking their own unique and universal language as one.

This is a rare opportunity to experience the music of Mark Atkins as never before – intimate and live.

“Atkins draws his audience in so that you almost feel that you are sitting round a fire listening to his stories, stories told in music and in voice. He is a master storyteller, has a warm sense of humour, and he has music in his soul. The audience was entranced, moved one moment, laughing out loud the next.” Australian Stage Online
