ROD & JESSIE

After winning various performance awards I recorded this forty minute long cassette of Australian poems and songs.
It will also soon be available on CD.

There are 5 of my own poems plus others by such people as Henry Lawson, Will Ogilvie and Adam Lindsay Gordon.
Also included are 4 bush songs where I am accompanied by my sister Mary on tin whistle and mandolin.
