Description

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.
