Warren Fahey – Australia Folk Songs & Bush Verse Vol 2 CD 2



Traditional songs are the product of the community rather than songs created for commercial gain. The majority of the songs and poems on this album express anger or frustration all expressed in their own individual style. Some make their point with wit and parody, some hit like a hammer; others leave you up in the air. This collection follows four main threads exploring the songs associated with political and social change in an ever-changing Australia: the shearing strikes of the 1890s, the struggles on the coalfields, early factory life, and the Australian at war.
