Notes

Following on from the success of the festival folk sing Joni Mitchell project I decided to keep going and to gather people together to record one of Australia's finest, most prolific and uncompromising songwriters, Eric Bogle. To maintain the festival folk sing … theme, artists who regularly perform at Australia's acoustic and folk music festivals were invited to record their favourite song of Eric's.

Eric Bogle is an amazing singer/songwriter. The breadth of subjects, emotions and issues that he covers in his songs is phenomenal.
