The Don of Australiana music is performing at Mullum

WHETHER he's performing solo, with Cold Chisel or as part of Tex, Don and Charlie, Don Walker personifies Australian music at its core.

Walker said his show this weekend will include a selection of his last three solo albums, We're All Gonna Die (1994), Cutting Back (2006) and Hully Gully (2013).

"There will be a couple of songs I released in the 1980s as Catfish and a couple also from the albums that I have done as part of Tex, Don and Charlie," he said.

Last March, Walker met Tex Perkins and Charlie Owen in Federal to record some demos for their upcoming album, due for release in early 2017.

"We will probably be doing some more recording later in the year for a Tex, Don and Charlie, as we do every dozen years," he said.

Mullumbimby audiences may be treated to some as-yet unreleased songs.

"There is a couple of new songs that I have written for that project that I will be doing (this weekend)," he said.

The project, still unnamed, will be the fourth album of the trio.

Don Walker considers himself a Northern Rivers local, despite the fact that he lives in Sydney.

"I am based in Sydney but my mother grew up at The Channon. I go there a lot because my mum, Dr Sherley Walker, lives in Alstonville," he said.
