An Australian Folk Song A Day is a powerful online resource resulting from John Thompson’s daily posting of an Australian folk song between January 26, 2011 and January 26, 2012.
Each song has been posted with lyrics, a recording and brief explanatory notes on its origins and historical context. The songs chosen include contemporary examples of songwriting in the folk style.
A valuable classroom tool, the blog has had over 300 000 page-views as of February, 2015.
The website is open-access, and is searchable. Selected recordings of the collection are available for purchase.
