Eric Bogle was here on Tuesday in Northport Maine, of all places. Jacqui, Mary and I went to see him, and man, what a show! He and his mate, John put on one hell of a performance. I drove 100 miles in the rain but it was worth it and then some.
This man is unbelievable; able to rip your heart out with The Band Played Waltzing Matilda one minute, and Gomez the Chiuawa (spelling) the next.
We may be on the end of the whole country but this year we have had, Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips and Eric Bogle. Not bad for a backwater state.

John Munro is a fair songwriter as well. He sang two of his own - my favorite, Bless This House. Bogle and Munro sing, play and fool around together like two friends jamming in their living room. It was a wonderful evening.

Now, who here can tell me about Louis McManus, Jacko Kevans and Slim Dusty? The new CD is dedicated to them.

I agree that Eric Bogle and John Munro are a perfect pair onstage.
I have music of Slim Dusty (and other albums dedicated to him) but know nothing of the other two. Will get some info out when I get home.

Slim Dusty is an Australian who writes and performs in the "country" music field. He wrote Old Gilbert, a real tear jerker.

When the Olympics were held in Australia a few years ago, the grand finale was something to see. All the fireworks and the sights of Australia were broadcast world-wide. The very last part--the climax of the whole thing--was Slim Dusty singing "Waltzing Matilda" in a haze of smoke. It was the best part of the whole show. Slim died not long after.

Eric has written a song in tribute to Slim. He and John performed it at the Top Half Folk Festival at Glen Helen near Alice Springs last June. It is called 'Tambourine Mountain' and the lyrics are on Eric's site: HERE.

G'day Sinsull,

Alan (ad1943) nagged me into answering your request. (I hadn't really bothered looking at this thread ... Maine being just about as far away from me as possible, on this globe!)

The three performers you ask about were all great assets to the Australian music scene ... in quite different ways.

Louis McManus brought strong Irish (and family) musical traditions to folk music ... and was involved with such folk/rock "fusion" groups as the "Bushwackers" ... not the original, very traditional, "Bushwhackers", who broke the ground for the Australian Folk Revival of 20 years before ... but rock-background musicians who discovered our folk traditions and injected "rock" drive and promotion - after the model of such British bands as Pentangle and Fairport Convention. Louis died a year or two back ... much too early (like lots of musicians ...).

Jacko Kevans was also of Irish traditions, the son of an Irish-Australian wharf-labourer ("wharfie") ~ = stevedore / longshoreman. He was a fine player of all types of squeezeboxes, a mine of information, songs and tunes and a keen (if strict) teacher of traditional styles and tunes - and performed with bands that started to 'rev up' the pace and energy of the Irish/Australian music scene even before better known folk/rock bands like the "Bushwackers". Jack (as he preferred, in later years) died of cancer, early this year.

Jack's (older?) brother Denis, was a marvellously cheeky poet, particularly on political and environmental issues ... affectionately referred to as Australia's "Poet Lorikeet". Many of his poems became songs, from the early days of the Folk Boom and were sung by a wide range of local performers. Denis died of heart failure, only a few months after Jack.

Slim Dusty was, of course, the 'Grand Old Man' of the Country Music scene, with an astonishing output over nearly 60 years of performing. One reason so many Australians loved Slim's work was that he always kept an Australian voice - unlike many "Country" singers, who seem to think that a faux-American accent is compulsory.

Songs like Slim's first recording success: When the Rains Tumble Down in July - recorded back around 1946 - will turn up as happily in the repertoire of a diehard Australian "traditional" Bush Band as that of a bunch of good old boys in fancy curly white hats, embroidered shirts and Texan ties!

Regards,

Bob

I have to say that I am finding it hard to decide which of his CDs is the best. In most cases I find the earlier ones the best that people have done---yet, some do evolve into better things. Mr. Bogle's just keep getting better and better---as does his performance. I loved the retrospective CD that just came out---At This Stage but this newest one---Other Peoples Children---is one of his best pieces of work if one wants to compare. Though, that is not necessary---appreciate all his works. They are, as I introduced him a while back, and he is one of the great poets and poetry of our generation.

re: Other People's Children. I wonder how he resisted adding the little girl photographed running naked and aflame during the Viet Nam era. She is branded into my mind.
A few years back I saw a documentary about her and the aftermath. She spent years recovering from the burns and as an adult got to meet the pilot who dropped the napalm. She forgave him. He, a recovering alcoholic, was grateful. Another song there, I guess.

Louis McManus was my brother and sadly passed away on 12/12/2004. He played with many great musicians over the years, and touched all who had the pleasure of hearing him play. At this years Tamworth Music Festival he was awarded the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Golden Fiddle Award post-humously. Eric and Louis played together many times over the years and my family are honoured with this dedication. God Bless you Eric, Antony McManus, Melbourne, Australia X

It was listed in the DEFFA newsletter and the Free Press, and publicized on WERU. The promoters are new to folk concert organizing and don't yet have a mailing list. I suggested to them that they collect e-mail addresses from attendees to build a list for their next concert.
