Performance Poets

Keith (COBBER) Lethbridge

 

Do you know anyone on the matrimonial track? How about having a Bush Poetry Wedding.
Keith (Cobber) Lethbridge, WA State Champion Bush Poet many times over the last fifteen years, is not only an outstanding poet and raconteur but also a JP and authorised Marriage Celebrant, So if wedding bells are in the offing, why not add a touch of the bush and make it Wedding Poems and Yarns as well.

Having lived and worked most of his life in the Kimberleys, much of Cobber's poetry draws on people and situations from that frontier of Australian rural life. Keith has published 6 books of his poetry. His most recent achievement is to win the very prestigious "Bronze Swagman 2009" award for written Verse. Not only does he excel at both writing and performing Bush Poetry, but can play the guitar, harmonica, piano accordion, the "bones" as well as almost any gum leaf that is put in front of him.

In 2014, Keith Lethbridge, along with Balladeer (and WABP Member) Terry Bennetts took out the "Best Songwriter of the Year" Award at the WA Country Music Festival at Boyup Brook with the Song "Fitzroy River".
