John O’Dea: Orroroo Singer/Songwriter & Bob The Railway Dog

Posted on: Mon 24 Aug 2020

Located in the little SA mid north town of Orroroo, John O’Dea produces multi-award winning music about Australia. Moving on from farming, John now makes his living teaching music to students, entertaining tourists, and before Covid-19 struck, performing at festivals from his home base at Orroroo to audiences in all parts of Australia. Orroroo is not far from Bob The Railway Dog’s home base of Terowie, so it seems quite logical that John would write a song about Bob.
