Cultural historian Warren Fahey explains the relevance of oral histories, especially songs, in the 21st century, and the importance of preserving Australia's folk song heritage for future generations.  Folklore expresses community creativity, and allows us an insight into the past so we are better equipped to see the future.

Warren will also discuss his pioneering folk song collecting work, play some of his field recordings, sing some songs and talk about using the digital age to preserve and popularise his ’signposts’.

Event is FREE. No Bookings Required.
