If you’ve been to one of Allan Browne’s gigs, particularly any of his residencies at Bennetts Lane in Melbourne, you’ll know that Browne has poetry running through his veins. A great quoter of other poets, he also writes his own. His verse is interspersed through his music, in the liner notes of his CDs; in verse he remembers friends, honours mentors and celebrates the loves, joys, sadnesses and mysteries of a life that’s taken him to places many of us will never see.
