Michael Waugh

Michael Waugh gives a profound new voice to the Australian experience. His insightful storytelling cuts to the emotional heart of everyday experience. A unique, intelligent and emotionally charged performer, inviting audiences into the moment, Waugh has been compared to the honesty and power of Australian folk and country legends, Mick Thomas, Paul Kelly and John Williamson. He is uniquely Australian and genuine – the real deal.

His current CD “The Weir” is a beauty and a worthy follow-up to “The Asphalt & The Oval”, which was judged Best Folk and Roots Album in the Age Music Victoria awards in 2018.

Michael is a House on the Hill favourite. He has performed twice in the house – a solo acoustic show in June 2016 and accompanied by Rich Davies (guitar) and Craig Kelly (double bass) in December 2018. Michael’s songs and the stories contained within them never fail to move an audience, and we look forward to seeing him again soon.
