The Australian Folk Song A Day project was inspired by John Boden's"Folk Song A Day" blog, featuring mostly unaccompanied renditions of English folk songs.

Between January 26, 2011 and January 26, 2012, I posted 367 songs, mostly recorded on the day of posting.

The arrangements of the songs vary, some being accompanied by guitar or concertina, others with multi-tracked harmony vocals.

CDs of selected tracks from the blog are available, either as month by month audio CDs or as a two-disc set of MP3 discs, containing 287 songs.

Please note, the recordings from the blog are part of an ongoing research and preservation project, rather than being studio recordings. Full lyrics for each song are available on the blog at ozfolksongaday.com.

You can purchase the CDs from the blog or using the link below:
