Roger Knox

At 70 years of age Uncle Roger Knox is not slowing down any time soon and his performance diary is full to bursting!  Born into an era when Aboriginal and Torres Strait performers could not easily get their foot in the door, Uncle Roger has dedicated his musical career to opening doors for First Nations artists. Reinvigorating Aboriginal culture is a lifelong pursuit for Uncle Roger and he has directed considerable energy into positive, enduring and creative projects for the benefit of his Aboriginal brothers and sisters.

The Knox family currently boasts four generations of musicians, dancers and performers. Even great-granddaughters are taking to the mic with a confidence that comes from being raised with music and performing arts an everyday part of life.
