Catch Luke Byrnes and the Big Scrub Revival Band's presentation and performance of folk music and folklore of the NSW Northern Rivers.
Luke has been investigating the musical heritage and folklore of the Northern Rivers region, searching the National Library’s oral history and folklore archives to find songs, yarns, tunes, poetry, dance, craft and folk stories collected from the region over the last 80 years. Stylistically Luke has reinterpreted source recordings of solo singers, box-players and fiddlers into contemporary compositions arranged for the Big Scrub Revival Band.
The National Folk Fellow is jointly funded by the National Folk Festival and the National Library of Australia.
