Thread Name: Who's Eric Bogle?
Subject: RE: Who´s Eric Bogle?
One of the first folk songs I remember hearing was 'Now I'm Easy', by Eric Bogle. I was a solo Mother with very small children and could relate to the song even though it is about 50 years of being a cocky (cattle-farmer) I longed for the day when I could be easy, I doubted it would ever come. He has guested at several New Zealand Folk Festivals and only seems to improve with age. Last time he teamed up with a chap called John Munroe. They formed an excellent duo.
