Event description

Description

Thursday 7 September, 2-4pm

Warren Fahey AM is well-known as a cultural historian, prolific author, broadcaster and performer. For the past fifty years he has collected, annotated and performed the stories, songs and poetry that are the signposts to our history.

His latest book, his 30th, is ‘All At Sea’, the story of Australia’s relationship with its seas and rivers. Warren admits to being surprised as to the sheer number of maritime songs in the collection, especially shanties documented as used on the Australian run. He also discovered songs about the sixty-milers, countless shipwrecks and a song about the establishment of the surf life saving movement. In his talk he guarantees to press a few nautical nostalgia buttons and sing a few of his favourite sea songs.
