The Doctor Need tradl Australian songs for women (39) RE: Need tradl Australian songs for women 11 Feb 09

Martyn W-R also produced Song Links, contrasting English songs and their Australian variants. On there are 'The Banks of Claudy', 'Lovely Nancy', 'The Wee One', 'Barbara Ellen' and 'The Lost Sailor', while 'The Banks of the Condamine' is a duet for man and woman.
In Great Australian Folk Songs are 'The Colonial Widow', 'The Convict Maid' (also on Martyn's Ned Kelly and all that Gang), and 'The Lost Sailor', as well as numbers 3, 5 and 6 listed above.
There will be others, but apart from some where the gender is very specific, and even some of those, I've always felt that if you like a song you can sing it.
