For this fun show, David Milroy and Lucky Oceans share their own unique songs and stories.

David, a Palyku man, is one of the key figures of WA’s Indigenous Art Renaissance, having been Artistic Director of Yirra Yaakin Theatre and a writer of award-winning plays, including ‘Windmill Baby’ and ‘Waltzing the Wilarra.’  Perth Festival presented his ‘Panawathi Girl’ at His Majesty’s Theatre in 2022, where it garnered 5 star reviews and won Best New Work’ in the WA Performing Arts Awards of 2023. Many of David’s beautifully crafted songs are plucked from his plays and he has been a gifted and prolific writer of songs almost since he became a professional musician in the 70s.  Like his plays, his songs take an honest but generous, humorous and unique view of the human condition.

Lucky is a Grammy-Award winning steel guitarist and was the host and programmer of ABC RN’s beloved daily music show The Daily Planet for 21 years. His songs shine with the experience of a lifetime in music as they muse on birth, death, AI, ecology and poetry.

David and Lucky have been crossing paths since the 1980s when they were both in the backing band for the Gnangara Aboriginal Country Music Festival but began performing as a duo in the 2020s, with shows at Freo Social, Kidogo, the Duke of George and, in 2025, Tasmania’s ’10 Days on the Island’ festival. This will be their debut performing together at the Ellington.

David and Lucky will take you into the zone with their expansive versions of their songs with Lucky’s improvisatory pedal steel and Dave’s jokes and provocations adding to the fun and uniqueness of this special show.
