7.oopm – Danny Spooner, one of Australia’s declared “Living Treasures”
has one of the world’s greatest repertoires of folk songs – all in his head!
He’s also a great story-teller with an inimitable, wonderful voice. Danny Spooner’s passion is the expression of British and Australian culture through folk music.
“Although I have been hearing good reports of Danny Spooner for many years, this is the first time I have seen and heard him. I realize now what I have been missing all these years. I can also see why his name is held in such high respect by musicians and music-lovers in Geelong and elsewhere. Although we were in a theatre, the atmosphere was more like a house concert . Danny sang either a capella or with concertina or guitar accompaniment. It was a (fairly) acoustic night – a return to the pure sound of the voice and instruments which is so much better for this sort of music… Before each song there was a spoken introduction giving either the history or background and these conversational introductions were every bit as good as the songs themselves. When it came to the choruses … they were joined in with great gusto… The songs covered topics as diverse as romance, working life, poverty, happy times, politics and history, and everything else in between.” Peter A.D.Fogarty, Geelong Folk Club
