Hear Richard J Frankland and The Letter String Quartet on RN

On July 6, 2017, Richard Frankland, Head of the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development at the University of Melbourne, will be performing at the Melbourne Recital Centre with The Letter String Quartet. Ahead of the show, Richard was interviewed for, and performed songs on, Radio National’s Books and Arts program.

In the words of Michael Cathcart, the host: “He’s worked as a soldier, a fisherman, a field officer during the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody. These days we know him as an author and playwright and filmmaker, an activist, an academic, a musician …”  The list goes on. You can listen to the full audio of Richard’s interview below.
