Interviews

“We definitely have fans here but Australia’s so big. Wallander was broadcast here and that definitely helped. And I think with the latest record Dear River having a lot more exposure than previous records has definitely helped build a fan base. I’m constantly getting messages saying “you’ve got to come home!” and I’d love to particularly with this new record Dear River because so much of it is about the subject of home. It is an album that I would like a lot of Australians to hear”Emily Barker chats to Gareth Hugh Evans. Interview here

“That’s what folk music is. It’s very broad. It’s something that you can never quite explain and it’s something that you can never sum up. I’m glad you guys are continuing to follow modern folk music as well – some traditionalists get really boggled done and are closed minded, think that music hasn’t gotten any better since the 20s and 30s and 40s and 50s. To a certain extent I’d agree with them but there’s a lot of new music out there to listen to and appreciate”Pokey LaFarge chats to Gareth Hugh Evans. Interview here

Friday Folk Flashback

“The Auld Triangle” – The Dubliners

Have you heard the version of “The Auld Triangle” on the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack? It’s pretty special. But it really pales in comparison to The Dubliners’ version because, well, they’re The Dubliners.
