Warren Fahey

For many of our pioneering ancestors the country was the real Australia where the memories of prison hulks, chain gangs and hostile natives were long forgotten – replaced by gold, sheep, wheat and cattle.

CURRENCY LADS & LASSES: SONGS OF COLONIAL ROMANCE
Warren Fahey

Published by ABC

CD: AU$19.95 +pp

When we think of the bush we usually think of gold, bushrangers, drovers, endless plains and sheep – however there was also romance. This is the first collection of Australian traditional songs about romance ever assembled. There was also a bawdy aspect of Australian romance this shows itself in some of the earlier songs like 'The Thrashing Machine' and 'Green Leaves Upon the Green'. These are all good fun and part of a very long tradition of such songs.

Warren Fahey

Being an island continent has always shaped Australia's history. Across The Seven Seas: The Australian Maritime Collection features songs and verse of shipboard life, salty sailors, disastrous shipwrecks and of the mighty ships that ploughed the seven seas.



AUSTRALIA: Folk Songs and Bush Verse - CD 6
SONGS OF DROVERS, SHEARERS AND BULLOCKIES
Warren Fahey

Published by ABC

CD: AU$19.95 +pp

In the second half of the 19th century the country was rich on the back of the greasy wool from sheep and the massive herds of cattle. The shearer is perhaps the most colourful of all bush workers. The great number of songs, recitations and yarns by or about shearers present them as a tough, humorous and independent group of men. Songs Of Drovers, Shearers And Bullockies captures the verse and songs of this important time in Australia's history.



AUSTRALIA: Folk Songs and Bush Verse - CD 7
SOLIDARITY FOREVER: SONGS OF STRUGGLE AND STRIFE
Warren Fahey

Published by ABC

CD: AU$19.95 +pp

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.



AUSTRALIA: Folk Songs and Bush Verse - CD 8

Published by ABC

CD: AU$19.95 +pp

Lean Times And Mean Times On The Hungry Mile: Australia In The Great Depression is a collection of songs of swagmen, cadgers and other drifters as well as songs of determination and survival in the face of despair.

Published by ABC

CD: AU$19.95 +pp

This collection of disparate songs and poems offers musical signposts to our growing up as a nation. Some are songs that reveal our pride in achievement and especially as we moved towards Federation. Others have become emotionally tied to us, like 'Waltzing Matilda' and 'Advance Australia Fair'. Both songs are included here as a tribute to Australia's maturity.
