Episode 12: Roger Knox on uplifting, strengthening and touching peoples hearts.

Welcome back to “A Cuppa and A Yarn”, hosted by Michelle Aleksandrovics-Lovegrove and brought to you by the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council. Our guest this week is one of the most influential Aboriginal musicians in country music.

Roger Knox is known as the ‘King of Koori Country’ and the ‘Black Elvis’ and he’s a founding father of the annual Aboriginal Cultural Showcase, which runs over a week during the famous Country Music Festival each year.

The Aboriginal Cultural Showcase is presented by the Tamworth Local Aboriginal Land Council and is proudly sponsored by the NSW Aboriginal Land Council. Roger Knox can make you laugh, dance and make you cry and says his main goals with his music in his life are to uplift, strengthen and touch peoples hearts.
