Jan ‘Yarn’ Wositzky

Jan ‘Yarn’ Wositzky was a Scots-Czech emigrant kid who came in 1956 and finished up discovering Australia, its songs and stories. Beginning in 1971 as a Bushwackers founder, Jan combines career with adventures and brings the fruits of his travels to audiences in shows that segue from music and song to storytelling and theatre, accompanying himself with 5-string banjo, harmonica, bodhran, bones and spoons. Always coming up with something new and surprising to add the national story, he conveys it all with a laid back style, loads of laughs and subtle politics – all strung together with a good yarn (pun intended).
