Eric Bogle & June Tabor


One of my favourite songwriters is the Scottish-Australian folk singer Eric Bogle. I especially like the interpretation of his work by the British singer June Tabor.  The three songs here are particularly poignant at this time because they are about the First World War. I have provided a link to each song performed by both June and Eric.
I don’t believe that any other medium has described the futility of war in a way that hits home like these songs do.

By the way, a 'cocky' is Australian slang for a farmer 
(originally a cockatoo farmer).
