Dust of Uruzgan – Fred Smith Bio

Fred Smith is no ordinary singer-songwriter...And this is no ordinary show...

Dust of Uruzgan is a collection of songs Fred wrote while working as diplomat alongside Australian soldiers in Uruzgan Province, southern Afghanistan. The show combines songs, humour, and commentary with a stunning set of images from military and civilian photographers

Fred is a true raconteur; a masterful and entertaining storyteller, who has been compared to great Australian songwriters, Eric Bogle, John Schumann and Don Walker. His songs are stories put to well-crafted music; telling the real life experiences of some 20,000 Australian soldiers who served in Afghanistan.

Fred's experiences in Uruzgan are also the subject of an Australian Story feature, a critically acclaimed album and now, his new book ‘The Dust of Uruzgan’ published in September by Allen and Unwin. In the live show you will be transported to Afghanistan, to the experience of life as a soldier: the dust, the heat, the frustration, the fighting and the camaraderie.

Poignant, educational, and at times hilarious, Dust of Uruzgan is an enlightening and

entertaining live music performance
