Maurie Mulheron is one of the finest exponents of folk music in Australia who has appeared here and overseas at peak folk festivals, folk clubs, theatres, concert halls including the Sydney Opera House, and on countless protest marches and picket lines.

Maurie is the writer of the popular hit theatre production One Word…WE! The Songs and Story of Pete Seeger & Friends, on which he collaborated with the legendary Pete Seeger, spending some time with Seeger at his home in New York. More recently Maurie’s show, The Times They Are a-Changin’: the songs and stories behind Dylan’s masterpiece, was described as “…a guided musical tour of one of Bob Dylan’s early and arguably most important albums…in my top five acts of the festival.”

Maurie also performs his own original songs as well as new arrangements of classic Australian and international folk songs. He is an exceptional musician playing a range of instruments including the 5-string banjo, 12-string guitar, blues harp, piano and mandolin.

Maurie is well-known for his reimagining of the protest songs, love ballads, union hymns and work songs that were discovered during the worldwide folk revival of the 1960s, which is why his band was chosen to be the opening act for Peter, Paul and Mary on their final Australian tour. Over the years Maurie has performed on stage with some of the giants of Australian folk music including Eric Bogle, Kev Carmody, Jeannie Lewis, Margret RoadKnight and Jim Conway.

“Folk music that is at once sensitive, deeply intimate and powerfully connecting. It doesn’t get better than this!”
