An Australian Folk Song a Day

It was only a matter of time before someone did it. Inspired by Jon Boden’s blog and podcast A Folk Song a Day, John Thompson (one half of popular trad and contemporary act Cloudstreet) has decided to try his hand at producing 365 folk songs on his blog, this time all Australian. The blog, entitled An Australian Folk Song a Day, began rather aptly on Australia Day and can be found here. The first song off the rank, “Moreton Bay” is below as performed by Cloudstreet. It’ll be really interesting to see where the project takes Thompson.

    If what I’m reading here is correct, you’ve picked up Jon’s gaunlet and attempting the same feat with Australian folk music. Brilliant! I’m the admin for Jon’s AFSAD and write the daily entries, we should hook up. Please send me a mail and let me know more about progress and so foth.
