Life in dust of Afghanistan comes to Gympie stage

WANT to celebrate Anzac Day and to hear some first-hand stories and songs about our Australian troops in Afghanistan?

Dust of Uruzgan is a collection of songs, humour and stories with images by civilian and military photographers.

Fred Smith was a diplomat assigned to Uruzgan province, southern Afghanistan, and in this performance he relives not only his experiences but also those of his fellow soldiers.

Presented by CoolArts-Gympie and the Gympie Music Muster, this is a must-see performance for everyone, as it depicts the reality of our military involvement in this far-off land.

At this time when we remember those who have served our country in times of trouble and war, Dust of Uruzgan will be a stark reminder of the difficulties and sacrifices of our troops in serving the greater interests of all Australians.

Dust of Uruzgan will be performed in the Gympie Civic centre on Anzac eve, Monday, April 24.

The performance starts at 7pm with a bar open from 6pm. Tickets ($30 - $15) are available online at gympieboxoffice.com.au or at the door.

Poignant, educational, and at times hilarious, Dust of Uruzgan is an enlightening and entertaining live music performance.
