Composer, violinist, raconteur and history buff Jon Rose has just presented Ghan Tracks in Sydney. This project came out of his Great Fences of Australia work which involved his playing fences in Israel, the USA, Finland and of course the many and varied "vermin" fences in the Great South Land. He’s in to tell us how much of his work serves as a metaphor for colonial settlement.
