ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As Australian songwriter, Audrey Auld, tours America she delights audiences with folk songs from her homeland. Fans demanded she record those songs. "Billabong Song" is an acoustic collection of four songs that are an integral part of the fabric of Australian culture, plus one new song from Audrey's pen, and a poem from 1908.
"Waltzing Matilda", Australia's unofficial anthem is known the world over. Who'd have thought a song about a suicidal sheep thief could muster such joy? But book-end this song with Eric Bogle's epic song, "And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda", and there is not a dry-eye in the house.
Audrey declares her own love of country in "Australia (Paint You A Picture)" and “Pub With No Beer”, made famous world-wide by Slim Dusty, proves it’s the characters that give Australia its unique charm.
“Camooweal” is a rare love song from the pen of Slim Dusty (aka David Kirkpatrick) and draws its title from the name of a small Outback town. “My Country”,a poem by Dorothea Mackellar familiar to many Australians, gives listeners a taste of Audrey’s Australian accent.
