Barry Gilson

Barry’s passion for music began at an early age and by the time he was 13 he was playing music gigs. He writes his own music including songs in his Wadawurrung language and performs solo utilising vox and guitar. A self proclaimed bush poet, Barry's words have been immortalised on a plaque at Federation Square in Melbourne.

He has performed in Tanderrum 2014-16, main stage at the Rainbow Serpent festival 2017, narrated and performed live at White Night - Ballarat, and has starred in several Aashi commercials for TV in Japan. For the last 17 years he's the Bonza Burger Man in fish and chip shops around Australia and he enjoys re-building ecosystems and is dedicated to conservation.

Barry has composed a song for the launch of Remnant Canoe which he will perform on May the 4th, 2017 at the You Yangs - Big Rock.
