Formidable Vegetable - Get Together

Formidable Vegetable - Get Together
The Permaculture Ukulele project is the first of its kind. Ethical, ecological edu-tainment designed to spread the word of sustainability without making you want to tie-dye your shirt or go out and buy a djembe.

Permaculture is basically a way to get ourselves out of habits of self-destruction and into one of abundance and prosperity.

After recognising a desperate need for people to stop talking about sustainability and start getting off their asses, WA permaculture troubadour Charlie Mgee grabbed his ukulele and came up with 12 songs covering each of the principles of permaculture.

With an all-star cast of Australian musicians including Mal Webb, Alex Burkoy (Tinpan Orange/Juila Stone), 19-year old Harry Jakamarra from Broome on banjo and WA’s own live electro-swing band Ensemble Formidable, the album is filled to the brim with tracks of truly grooveworthy proportions with styles ranging from ‘energy-descent electro-swing’ and ‘climate-change reggae’ to ‘peak-oil polka’.

In just three short months, Formidable Vegetable (aka Charlie Mgee) has already busted out live shows at internationally acclaimed festivals including Woodford Folk Festival (QLD), Eclipse 2012 (Cairns), Folk, Rhythm & Life and Rainbow Serpent (VIC) and has shared the stage with class-acts such as Nicky Bomba’s Butamento, Spoonbill and Fat Freddy’s Drop.

About this track...

A bit of permaculture ukulele soul-funk about integrating rather than segregating. Life is better for everyone when there's cooperation over competition. Start connecting with people and the land & share the love. Many hands make light work. It's time to get it together.
