Fred Smith has spent the last 20 years all over the joint: working on peace keeping missions in Afghanistan and the South Pacific, touring in
America and travelling the Australian festival circuit. He has released about 10 CDs, mostly solo but also collaborations with Liz Frencham and the Spooky Men's Chorale.
Fred cut his teeth performing comic and satirical ballads in bars and festivals in the late 90s.
Smith has worked in peace monitoring operations in Bougainville, was Australia's first diplomat in southern Afghanistan and worked in the Solomon Islands.
Smith has spent three years touring throughout the US and Canada while working in Washington DC and is a regular on the Australian festival and touring circuit.
These experiences have resulted in albums including the award-winning Bagarap Empires and Dust of Uruzgan and the newly-released Warries.
Warries is something of a retrospective, documenting a prolific phase in the artist’s life, but also a remarkable period in which Australian soldiers and civilians deployed into conflict zones in the Pacific and Central Asia as warriors and peacemakers.
Warries is also a sequel to his acclaimed Dust of Uruzgan album.

About this track...

This is John Schumann’s setting of Henry Lawson’s poem. A struggle between father and son, a difficult marriage, the thin consolations of the Scottish Presbyterian Church, the impact of a distant war on a rural community, then some grim redemption - all in two minutes of verse. Lawson was surely the master.
