I realized I'll never be able to release a filk album if I don't start writing some original filk songs. Here is one for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon mission.

Thanks to a comment on one of my earlier Leonard Cohen covers I went looking for another song to do.

I had heard this a few times on my 'Songs of Love and Hate' LP, but didn't like the angry tone. Then I found this live version, which I much prefer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDmvx_fZe3E

I'm sure there are many English Literature theses written trying to explain the lyrics here. Is it about the crucifixion, is it about drugs, it is about false piety, is it about sex with hunchbacks? Like many of Leonard's songs, you feel like you have been told something very profound, but can't quite put your finger on what it is.

Apologies to jonl1973 for my abuse of your photo of Leonard playing Edinburgh in 2008 but I couldn't find any photos of him with a ukulele.

I was trying to think of a song that would go with the photos and footage of our day at the snow last week. This one seemed a good fit.

We don't get much 'real' snow in Australia near where we live, so this is mostly artificially made every night. It is another hour driving and many more dollars to get to the real snow.

After an hour of learning the song, I realized it would be many more hours before I could play this consistently and accurately, so as I'm lazy (and not getting paid), it is a bit rough.

20 July will be the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo mission to our moon. Leslie Fish wrote this iconic song about the event.

Unfortunately I can't find a YouTube link to her singing it, but here is Lulie Ecklar singing with a video by Thu Vu Trong:

So my subscriber count has been going above and below 500 over the past few days, hopefully it is stable enough to upload this.

Thankyou to everyone who watches, likes and comments on my videos. It is wonderful to share and listen to music with people all over the world.

I think ConriDubhghail and Tomy Hans are subscribers 500 and 501, but I'm not sure for how long! I'll cover a song for you if you want. :)

I heard Max Cullen do a fantastic recital of this 1888 poem by Henry Lawson as part of the 'Dead Men Talking' show with Warren Fahey (as Banjo Paterson) tonight.

Here is my rough attempt at putting a tune to the poem.

Some read this as a 'revolutionary' anthem, but to me it sounds more like a cautionary lesson about avoiding the causes of revolution rather than a call to raise the red flag.

Others have also set this to music, including the Bushwackers:

There was a flag raising ceremony in our town today, marking the start of NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) week in Australia.
https://www.naidoc.org.au/about/naidoc-week

The event was reported in the local paper here:

The Uluru Statement from the Heart (that was ignored by the government in 2017 and since):
https://www.commongrace.org.au/the_uluru_statement_from_the_heart

The photo of Kevin Rudd's National Apology is by flickr user Virginia Murdoch.

'Voice Treaty Truth' is the theme for the event this year, I used these ideas to write this song in support of general awareness of the situation with Australia's first people.

As much as this hurts me to write and sing, I know my grief is so very insignificant compared with those who have lived the experience. Like Kevin, I can only say 'Sorry'.

Chords and lyrics:

I had a series of fortunate events happen last week and forgot to do a song about it.

I first heard this sung by Judy Pinder at a singing session around 13 years ago, however, this recording is inspired by my recent discovery of Joe Heaney's work.

I was listening to a radio interview with Warren Fahey, in which he mentions getting Joe Heaney to Australia in 1981:
https://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/musicshow/warren-fahey-folkloric-larrikins-folkways/11256782

I then found and listened to a recording of the full concert that Joe did in Sydney:
http://www.warrenfahey.com.au/joe-heaney/

Which then got me thinking, wouldn't it be good if they made a movie about this type of singing. Turned out, the movie 'Song of Granite' had just been added to the Stan library in Australia. Trailer here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKOIondylAE

Highly recommend the movie for anyone who loves Irish culture and song.

Here is Joe's own version of the song:

Have just purchased the fabulous new album from Kate Rusby, called Philosophers, Poets and Kings. Here is the official video for 'Jenny':
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6JMvwORx-Q

The song was written some time before 1831 about a real horse called Yorkshire Jenny, appearing in the Sporting Magzine Vol 4.
https://books.google.com.au/books?id=T39BAQAAMAAJ

For some reason the song came to be known as 'Creeping Jane', with many versions recorded:
https://mainlynorfolk.info/joseph.taylor/songs/creepingjane.html

Kate's version has only minor modifications to the verses (from the 1831 version) with the addition of a new chorus and new melody.

Steeleye Span did a version:

You can probably see from my channel that Country music isn't my thing, but an incredibly talented local singer, Siobhan McGrath, performed this at a concert in Canberra last night, so I was inspired to give it a go.

Tonight was our annual winter solstice bonfire, a bit more subdued than usual, as some family members are sick and we didn't have the usual crowd of people over.

I wrote this song about what the solstice means and meant to humanity for thousands of years before Christianity. Enough to go to the effort of constructing the henge at Salisbury and in many other places across Europe.

Happy Alban Arthan / Yule / Winter Solstice to those in the Southern Hemisphere, and happy Alban Hefin / Litha / Summer Solstice to those in the North.

With the drums of war sounding ever louder, here is one my favorite anti-war songs.

Published in 1867, but possibly written around the time of the Kandyan wars:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_I_Hardly_Knew_Ye

Sadly the lesson is the same for all the wars before and since. It is the men and women who return broken in mind and/or body and their families that suffer.

I love this recording by Benjamin Luxon:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QL-lKe-Pj4

But the performance I will always remember was by a friend, Geoff Kell, at a local music night, probably over 10 years ago.

Was singing this song and wondering what words might fit in a re-write, this was the result.

The song is old (1867), but gained a bit of modern popularity when Alison Krauss' version was included in the film 'O Brother, Where Art Thou':

Thanks to David Blakeley from the CFS Facebook group for pointing this poem of Cicely Fox Smith's out to me.

Looks like mine might be the first setting to music.

Images are from the wikipedia page:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Birkenhead_(1845)

This ship went down off the coast of Africa in 1852 and close to 500 soldiers sacrificed their own lives to allow the women and children to take the woefully inadequate lifeboats.

More of the story here:

This brilliant song by The Avett Brothers came up on the car shuffle today and I haven't done a ukulele cover in a while.

This is a little lo-fi, just recorded from the web-cam mic.

I hadn't seen the short film clip that went with this song from their 2008 album, Emotionalism:

It's a travesty that this song isn't available on YouTube!

Thanks to Margaret Walters for providing me with a copy of John Warner's fantastic album, "The Sea and the Soil" from 2000.
