Henry Lawson would deserve to be Australia's national poet, except that no such position exists and also the fact that he died in 1922! Yesterday was Henry's 137th birthday, a good reason to play some of his poetry recited and put to music.

The featured album was CORVUS  by COLCANNON  (Oxford Road Records) featuring a mix of traditional and original songs and tunes based firmly in the celtic (mostly Irish) style.  Good acoustic sound, not over-produced, and a confident recording by a well established band.

The featured album was  IN SPITE OF OURSELVES  by  JOHN PRINE  (Oh Boy Records).  An album of "meetin', cheatin' & retreatin' songs" on which Prine duets with female, mostly country, singers.  Some very fine songs delivered in an engaging style.  For example, putting the voices of John Prine and Iris DeMent together seems strangely compelling! The following tracks were scattered through the program:

(WE'RE NOT) THE JET SET (w/Iris DeMent);  WEDDING BELLS/LET'S TURN BACK THE YEARS (w/Lucinda Williams);  MILWAUKEE HERE I COME (w/Melba Montgomery);  IT'S A CHEATING SITUATION (w/ Dolores Keane);  IN A TOWN THIS SIZE (w/ Dolores Keane);  I KNOW ONE (w/Emmylou Harris)

Today's program included an extended interview by 2MCE's Seth Jordan with English folk diva Maddy Prior, who starts an Australian tour next month, and three tracks from her new album, 'Ravenchild'.

The program also featured several songs and poems on the theme of Reconciliation.  More than 150,000 people walked across the Sydney Harbour Bridge this morning in support of furthering the process of reconciliation between Australia's white and indigenous communities. One significant issue is the Prime Minister's refusal to say the word "sorry" in connection with 'the stolen generations'.

This term describes the thousands of Aboriginal and Islander children removed from their families by Government and Church in order to help them 'assimilate' into Australian society.  This practice was still taking place in the 1960s.

The indigenous population (and many others) want the Australian Prime Minister to acknowledge past Australian Governments' complicity in this process by using the word "sorry".  He hasn't said "sorry" and he didn't walk across the bridge today, although many politicians did.

My thanks to Ian Hobba for presenting the program last week while I was immersed in the National Folk Festival at Canberra.  Much listening, playing, singing and pouring Guinness.  Always a great five days!  Some of the tracks today (but not the featured album) featured artists who performed at the National.

The featured album was  THE NETTLES  by Portland, Oregon, band  THE NETTLES. Mostly traditional (or trad based) Irish and American music.  Lively, straight up and down presentation, sounds like they would be good live entertainment.  Visit the band at

I have finally set up a site for archived playlists.  Although the program has been going since 1976 I only started preparing playlists (mostly for folkdj posting) in mid 1998.  And then it took another two years to take it the next step.  By the next millenium the program might be live on line!

The featured album, making up almost half the program, was  HIGHLIGHTS 2000 - A SAMPLER OF THE 2000 NATIONAL FOLK FESTIVAL.  All the tracks are taken from commercially available albums released by artists performing at the Festival.
The album was produced to promote this year's 'National' which takes place at Easter in Canberra amid the autumnal colours of Australia's bush capital. Have a look at the Festival's website at 
www.spirit.com.au/   The following tracks were scattered through the program:

The featured album was  SONGS OF THE SNOWY MOUNTAINS  by  THE SETTLERS  (BMG).  Construction of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme began in 1949, at a time when post-war migration brought a huge population increase to Australia.  100,000 people from over 30 countries worked on the Snowy Scheme and the songs on the album, all written by Ulick O'Boyle, tell the stories of some of its characters and events.  This is a 1999 CD re-release of a much earlier vinyl original.

This week I took a few tracks from the Pete Seeger tribute CD released on Appleseed a year or two back, "Where Have All The Flowers Gone".  Last Friday I saw a production of "One Word ... We", an excellent musical biography of Pete Seeger put together by a Sydney music teacher, Maurie Mulheron, so I was feeling very mellow about the great octogenarian.

The featured album was  TUBULAR DOGS  by  THE MRS ACKROYD BAND  (Mrs Ackroyd Records) 
www.mrsackroyd.com   Mostly parodies of songs known by folk music people, particularly those of baby boomer vintage.  Les Barker's poetry at its funniest, performed by fine singers including David Knutson, Hilary Spencer, Alison Younger, Cyril Tawney, Bill Caddick, June Tabor, Eileen McGann and Les Barker.  The following tracks were scattered through the program:

SLOOP JOHN A;  GREY TUNNEL LINE;  CUSTARD CREAMS;  BREAKING WIND SUDDENLY;  KRILL;  GIT A LONG LITTLE DOGIE;  WILL THE TURTLE BE UNBROKEN

English singer Roy Bailey was awarded an MBE in the Queen's New Year's Honours List.  Giving an imperial honour to an outspoken socialist folk singer certainly justified my playing a few of his songs on the program.  Ain't life strange?

www.iuma.com The following tracks were scattered through the program:
