Don Walker is one of Australia’s greatest musical legends, best known as the main songwriter for Cold Chisel.

Katie Noonan, Christine Anu, Suze DeMarchi and Emily Wurramara join forces to perform some of his most iconic songs at The Headland, against the spectacular backdrop of the harbour. 

A Sydney Festival premiere, Songs of Don draws inspiration from the musical storyteller behind such memorable classics as Khe SanhSaturday NightCheap Wine and Standing on the Outside.  

Walker, the author of 2 critically acclaimed books, has spent some 40years capturing what it is to be Australian through music, whether with Cold Chisel, Tex, Don and Charlie or in his solo work.  

Taking place under the stars of Barangaroo, this star-studded tribute to an icon of Australian music is performed alongside a first-rate band, consisting of Jess Green on guitars, Zoe Hauptmann on bass and Bree van Reyk on drums.

Sydney Festival is planning for 2021 with a focus on the recovery and rejuvenation of Australian arts, celebrating the very best new Australian work and the joy of shared live experiences. The safety and well-being of artists and audiences is foremost in our planning.
