Subject: RE: Sally Sloane - Australian source singer
Thanks Tony, I'll read your wiki article.
I can credit the 1967 Meredith & Anderson book Folk Songs of Australia and the Men and Women Who Sang Them with turning me towards folk music back in the late '60's when I used to borrow it from the library and attempt to play the tunes on a plastic whistle which I had been learning to play at school. Sally Sloane's tunes and songs were my favourites from the book.
I later bought both book 1 and book 2 and still treasure them.
I have also listened to some of Sally Sloane's recordings on the National Library of Australia archives.
