  • Featuring alt-folk artist Andy Gordon LIVE in the CiTR studio *

This week’s extra special guest is a quality alternative folk singer-songwriter named Andy Gordon who hails from Kangaroo Valley, NSW.  Listeners might recall our previous interview with Andy in 2013 where he spoke about his single ‘Breelong Black’ which was written about the Aboriginal outlaw Jimmy Governor.  Andy has deepened his historical research to include the very early years of colonial Australia and his latest album, ‘New Albion’ is a song cycle about the interactions of the First Fleet settlers and the Aboriginal First Peoples.  Andy actually joins us in person this time as he is on his first tour of British Columbia.  He speaks at length about the stories behind the songs on this impressive album and plays three tracks for us live in the studio.
