Cee’s Which Way Challenge-Wk 2

This is how we travelled up to Kuranda Village on the outskirts of Cairns.

It is a slow, picturesque, ride through the Kuranda State Forest.

  1. Forgot to ask you that, in light of you being from Australia and having “Woolly” in your blog title, I wondered whether you’re familiar with Priscilla Herdman. She has a song called “Mr. Woolly” (at least I think that’s the title) and I thought of that when I read about your background. Love her songs.

      • Just realized while reading her bio (http://www.priscillaherdman.com/) that she’s American, not Australian (which we thought she was all these years.) Silly me. Anyway, her first album, “The Water Lily”, which is the one I’m familiar with, has mostly Aussie songs on it, hence the confusion, and one of them is “Old Wooly”, although it doesn’t have to do with sheep. Here’s why I thought she was Australian:

        “This is Priscilla Herdman’s debut album and was re-released in 1995 by Philo/Rounder on CD. Seven of the eleven cuts are poems of Henry Lawson the great Australian “People’s Poet” (1867-1922). Four of the Henry Lawson selections have tunes composed by Priscilla Herdman. This album was originally released as an LP.”

        I guess I was a bit confused. 🙂 However, if you get a chance to hear “The Water Lily”, take it. It’s wonderful

      • Hi Janet. I think this conversation is gaining clarity…for me! I searched iTunes and found Priscilla H. She does have a lovely clear voice….I could even be tempted to download a few of her songs. What I did notice on “Waterlily” was the song, “And the band played waltzing Matilda”. One of my favourites. It’s on YouTube by John Williamson (an Aussie)… Makes me think of all wars and my grandfathers in particular (more in my April, ANZAC Day post).

        Another favourite in iTunes, “I was only 19”, by Redgum. I am of the age where my marble was drawn for conscription to the Vietnam War. Health kept me out of it. Both songs show the futility of war…in my opinion.

        At least now I know why I had not heard of Priscilla Herdman 🙂
