A stirring, foot-stomping treasure-trove of more than 100 traditional songs that celebrate what it is to be Australian. Warren Fahey's AUSTRALIAN FOLK SONGS AND BUSH BALLADS is a stirring, foot-stomping treasure-trove of more than 100 traditional songs that celebrate what it is to be Australian. These are not some dusty old songs to be thrown in a drawer and forgotten. They are songs to be sung with gusto whenever the spirit takes you - on holiday, at school, at a party, around the barbecue or kitchen table. You'll find the words and music for sing-along favourites such as 'Old Bullock Dray', 'Wild Colonial Boy', 'Stir the Wallaby Stew', 'The Old Bark Hut', 'Limejuice Tub', 'Banks of the Condamine', 'Euabalong Ball', 'Augathella Station', 'Click Go the Shears', 'The Dying Stockman', 'The Overlanders' and 'Waltzing Matilda', plus the song we should all know the words to (but few of us do) - 'Advance Australia Fair'. There are also several bush songs published for the first time. Featuring fascinating background notes and liberally illustrated with rare images, this book is a must for anyone interested in Australia's musical and cultural history. And it has been collected by the one who knows them best: legendary folklorist and performer, Warren Fahey.
