The Shiny Bum Singers are excited to announce they will be performing at NFF 2022.
Yes, the Bums are back!
We’re “coming home” to where it all began at the National Folk Festival.
Working For Clowns is a follow-up volume to the much loved OmniBum.

The Shiny Bum Singers perform at the launch of local artist (and Shiny Bum Singer!) Margaret Hadfield’s new art space the “Artists Shed” on 16 June 2019.
Margaret has been singing with the group for almost a year and was very keen to have them at the opening – a huge crowd there and a great success! The Artists Shed is at 88 Wollongong Street Fyshwick and has multiple galleries, exhibitions and art classes. More info at The Artists Shed – Facebook
Kerry Kennedy, a member of the Shiny Bum Singers, has sadly passed away on 10 April 2019 after a short illness.
Kerry is an unimaginable loss. He was a good friend to many and very considerate of others, and gave a lot of his time in recent years to the Shiny Bum Singers while enjoying retirement.
He will be greatly missed. We already miss him for all he contributed to the Shiny Bums – to keep us at our best and to keep us in line!
Our very own Donna O’Brien awarded the Order of Australia Medal.
