The historic and the modern – the common and the rare

An illustrated address by Trevor Cross - collector, curator and researcher.
Featuring work from around the world, Australian and Western Australian Collections.

The presentation will be accompanied with songs written and performed by musicians Mike Murray and Dr Lesley Silvester who will be singing a couple of songs from West Australia’s dramatic maritime past from their acclaimed CD “Strangers on the Shore”. All the songs and stories are based on true incidents that happened – shipwrecks, pirates, dramatic rescues and much more. Mike and Lesley have been singing together for many years and performed at festivals including the Albany Shanty Festival in July.
