Ian Date - Yarrawonga
Ian Date is featured on the compilation album, Down By The Billabong: Acoustic Guitar Arrangements for Australian Folk Songs & Bush Tunes.

Ian has been performing professionally since age 14. When he was 20 he moved to Sydney NSW Australia and became heavily involved in the music scene. Ian based himself in Sydney for the next 20 years and performed and recorded with many of Australia’s jazz greats.

In the mid 1980’s he undertook his first international excursions and appeared with many jazz stars from various countries. He lived in The Netherlands for a year in 1990.

Ian has performed all over Australia and 37 other countries at various festivals and events. Equally at home on the acoustic and electric guitar, Ian’s playing is firmly rooted in the jazz tradition. He has his own engaging style and he brings his intelligence, craft, musicality, skill and humour to all his projects. Critics have described his playing and performances as lyrical, endlessly inventive, masterful and his live performances as thoroughly entertaining.
