OUT OF PRINT Goldrush to Federation and Beyond. These 3 CDs present the colourful and multicultural history of Bendigo in Victoria. Produced by fine traditional musician and folklorist Peter Ellis, of Emu Creek Bush Band fame.
"An interesting collection of 3 CDs with a wealth of old and current material, performed by a wide range of mostly local musicians, singers and poets. The musical items are grouped by periods in history (e.g. Goldrush, the 1890s, the Wars) as well as by cultural and ethnic influences and origins (Chinese, Germans, Koori, Italians and Welsh). Then there is a variety of old dance music and other subjects like novelty items and bush concerts. A fascinating and rare insight into the musical history of regional Bendigo in central Victoria well worth investigating." Review by Dieter Bajzek.
