In 2011, songwriter and diplomat Fred Smith returned from 18 months in Uruzgan Province, southern Afghanistan with a collection of songs he released as the album Dust of Uruzgan. The album won rave reviews and coverage on national radio, television and print.

The show combines songs, humour, and commentary with a stunning set of projected photographs by military and civilian photographers. Smith was actually there and the stories he tells are of real people and events.

The Dust of Uruzgan is a unique and important opportunity for the Australian public to know what Afghanistan was all about, and to understand the experiences of 10,000 young Australians who, for the last eight years, have struggled to make a difference in one of the poorest provinces of this war-ravaged country.

Poignant, educational, and at times humorous, Dust of Uruzgan is an enlightening and entertaining live music performance.
