SYDNEY OR THE BUSH
Sydney or the Bush... This band is as 'Aussie Roots' as it gets, playing traditional settler songs from as late as 1895..
Paying homeage to the pioneers, that often travelled here in chains & stories of bushrangers & other wayward characters that define a time in our formidable history.
Following in the tradition of swaggy's & bush poets, passing on folk-lore & history of the common man's journey's from 'the old country' to the harsh & foreign frontier of Australia's post-settlement days.
'London, Paris, New York' by 'Sydney or the Bush' ... 15 traditional songs from the convict era of Australian history to the colonial times of the late 1800's. Replicated in respectfully authentic renditions, performed on constantina (squeeze box), ukelele, guitar, banjo, piano & whistles. Featuring... Sydney Welling - vocals, squeeze box, Barry Shaw - ukelele, vocals & Fiona Ryan - whistles, vocals.
