Australian bush songs re-worked and planted firmly in the 21st century with a post-modern bush band treatment. Reclaiming lost Australian cultural territory, this is an album of bold statements, made with uncompromising attention to detail, from the hand-embroidered artwork to the custom-tuned piano. Songs of torture, transportation, criminal women and convict men have been dragged out of the songbooks, ripped apart, then lovingly put back together as a reminder that our history never leaves us.
Folk singer Jenny M. Thomas is a former Circus Oz performer and Golden Fiddle award winner. Wading into the Australian song books, in 2006 she released a solo album of traditional Australian songs titled ‘Farewell To Old England Forever’ touring throughout Europe and Australia and earning rave reviews: “Imagining life without her music and its surprises, is too bleak to think about” (fRoots Magazine).
