Album Notes
JACK THOMPSON is one of Australia’s most loved and respected actors. He has appeared in numerous Australian and American feature films including Wake In Fright, Sunday Too Far Away, Breaker Morant and The Man From Snowy River. Additional film credits include, The Sum Of Us, Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil, Star Wars: Episode II, The Assassination of Richard Nixon, The Good German, December Boys and Baz Luhrmann’s Australia.

His many television credits include A Woman Called Golda with Ingrid Bergman, Shadow In The Sun opposite Stephanie Powers and A Woman Of Independent Means opposite Sally Field. He currently hosts the highly successful television series Finding Your Family on the Seven Network.

Jack is a Goodwill Ambassador for U.N.H.C.R, a founding member of the Council for the National Museum of Australia and a life member of Stockman’s Hall of Fame. Jack Thompson was awarded an AM, “Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia”, for his services to the Australian film industry.

Born and bred in Manly, NSW, his father, John Thompson was a poet and broadcaster too. Jack went to the Northern Territory to work as a stockman when he was a teenager. It was there that he fell in love with the Australian bush and came to truly understand the poems of Banjo Paterson that he first learned as a schoolboy.

Jack is now busier than ever. He has a vibrant career as an internationally renowned actor, a pub in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, and a charity foundation that provides funds for building projects by Indigenous Australians.

Jack and Banjo share a love of the Australian bush and the Australian character. In making a recording of Banjo’s poems Jack hopes they will bring Banjo’s fine, innocent, whimsical creations into the lives of many others, and introduce a new generation to the wisdom, the values and the humour that form one of the foundations of the Australian character.

JACK THOMPSON: The Bush Poems of A.B. ‘Banjo’ Paterson is available from all good stores in early December or for download or direct purchase from us at www.finepoets.com
