Listen To Older Voices : Mick Elliott – Part 3

Share post:

Listen To Older Voices : Mick Elliott – Part 3 Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program 
produced by Rob Greaves for Uniting Melba and podcast through 
the Toorak Times and Tagg.
 

Listen To Older Voices presents the stories, views and opinions of our older citizens. It is predominantly in a life & times format, with interviewees reflecting upon their lives from earliest memories. An underlying principle of the program is to promote the concept of positive ageing, reinforcing the principle that older people have & continue to make a valuable contribution to both their local & wider community.

In the final program of the story of Baby Boomer Mick Elliott, Mick continues his stories of his music experiences and shares his thoughts on both the past and current state of Australian music, as well as on a range of social issues. His stories of his many trips to the northern territory, a place that has captured Mick’s heart, are stories of his music and his love of playing and he reminds us just how much our indigenous Australians enjoy live music.

Mick is an unassuming man, his friends understand that often he is a man with few words, but a man who let’s his guitar do his talking. Now rapidly playing into his seventieth year, his playing in groups is becoming less frequent as he is largely retired but for the lucky ones, he can still be heard playing from time to time. He now supplements his income-teaching guitar while looking forward to the time when he can move permanently to the Northern territory and see out his final years there.

I have been with the Toorak Times since April 2012. I work as Senior Editor of the Toorak Times, but I also think of myself as senior contributor. I've been in the Australian music scene as a musician since 1964, and have worked in radio and TV and newspapers (when they were paper ), serious experience in audio editing, and a lot of video editing experience. Currently I'm working as a radio program producer for a national interview program as well as my work with the Toorak Times
